Summer’s abundance makes me feel so alive. I walk through a field of grass and see little bugs hopping around everywhere. I walk through a forest and I hear birds singing as a choir. I see vetch blooming purple. I see St. John’s Wort blooming yellow and as I go to touch it, it stains my fingers brown.

Summer is abundant. In North America, in Prince George, it is a time where we can easily forget the rain of Spring, the coldness of Winter, and the falling leaves of Autumn. Instead, it’s green everywhere. Water is warm enough to get in to, and I want to get in to it because it’s warm everywhere!

I notice new growth on the tips of old growth, I see green poking through the brown I once knew, and my regular paths through the forest are nearly exploding from the sides with foliage!

Oh, Summer, what abundance you do bring.
