Leaves Oh Leaves

Just the word leaves, gets me, they leave, they leave the tree as summer says goodbye. We turn over a new leaf and the next season begins…a symbol for us of change. Our mornings become a little slower as we pause to stay beneath the covers, snuggling into the warmth that has become cozy for […]

Peach Picking

Peach Picking

Oh Summer days, when little hands are warm and juicy and the evening sky is the colour of the fruit you spend the day picking. Drives into the country are long and slow and on return trips home the car smells sweet and ripe with harvested goodness. Baskets in hand, the children run with enthusiasm until […]
