“This gardener’s rule applies to youth and age,
When young sow wild oats, but when old grow sage.”
~ Henry James Byron
The Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a hotter than normal summer for this area. Of course it also says we should be enjoying near-normal temperatures and below-normal precipitation right now which isn’t happening so, while I hope, I don’t put much stock in the forecast for summer.
Yesterday was beautiful. Maya and I enjoyed strolling the gardens at my mother-in-love’s care home while Gerry assisted her with the evening meal. Today looks promising; there may be a photography excursion on the agenda. We need to enjoy it while it lasts because the forecast looks cloudy and wet.
I think the gray days are affecting my mood but experience tells me it’s temporary–both the mood and the gray. The sage advice I give myself is that feelings are fleeting; and as my best friend reminds me: “it came to pass”.
