Summer time

Thank God for sunshine, heat and SUMMER. It is not as hot as I would like (Mombasa, White Sands, the Indian Ocean !!! Sigh)

I do not have to wear a heavy sweater or coat. This rose is grateful to God for this season. This is the season where I sit in the sunshine and collect as much warmth as I can in preparation for the rains and dark clouds of the autunm.

Oh yes, I miss home very much.

It's funny how that seems to work. The kind of place where you grew up as a child, especially its scenery and climate, often remains the prototype of beauty, and always carries with it that sense of home.

I am looking forward to the autumn - I love the autumn, hate the winter and can't stand the heat in London in the summer.

Having said that, I enjoy not having to wear heavy sweaters or coats.

Paul: It is true, when I think of home, it is not our present home, but that home of my childhood

Mshairi: autumn is good because of the changes in the trees, but can't stand the constant London rain.

Nick: I should feel sorry for you guys, seeing you are not used to the chilly stuff, but I shall not. (sorry nephew)

Poi: yes, I am collecting as much heat as I can - roses hibernate in the winter don't they?

You see we are never happy with what we have, what with the Texan wishing for winter, the Poet waiting for autumn and the Kenyans who have never felt actual cold wishing for the sun again.
