The last week before school starts. The streets in the Haddons are so very still. No buses and vans transporting children to school. Just the background musicians of summer – crickets and cicadas.
As I took my morning walks this week, I became aware once again of the beauty of our Haddon region. The abundance of flowers, the intensity of their colors, and the sweet smell of honeysuckle remind me that this is truly a week to savor.
One of my favorite things this week has been to observe the change in the sunlight. Our morning light is still pregnant with moisture and I am looking forward to the return of crispness that reveals all this beauty with a sharp contrast of light and shadow.
Enjoy the week – hustle and her friend bustle are just around the corner.
