The summer is quickly coming to an end. The garden is still looking wonderful. The phlox is starting to go and the asters are starting to peak out. The roses are still blooming and the wave petunias are finally looking better. It is a good time to take a walk through the paths or take a swing and relax, enjoy the birds and butterflies.
There is a feeling of fall in the air. Things are cooler and the trees are starting to show color. I love the change of seasons.Each season brings anticipation.Fall welcomes the cooler temperatures and the beautiful change in colors. There is a quieting of the soul and an organization of life in preparation for the slumber of winter. In this part of the country, the anticipation of that first snowfall is exciting and, to add to this anticipation, we are going to have a new lift flown in sometime in September at the site of the old Hudson trail. That looks like an awesome trail! Brings back memories for us older ski bums.
Being a gardener, I look forward to putting the garden to bed in anticipation of spring and renewed life. \\ That is why Spring is my favorite season. It is the hope for the future and shows the ever changing spirit of life.
Come join us for an end of the year barbecue to benefit North Country Outreach Center on Sept. 4. We will have music and the best barbecue in town. For tickets, call Judy Brown at 251-3368.
