Summer is most definitely here. The heat, the humidity, swimming, gardening, and me, the asthmatic, gasping for breath. Damn pollen.
It’s all good, though. Winter was 6 months of torture, and it’s wonderful to be outdoors, with the vibrant colors and smells, and focused on appreciating what nature has in store for me.
Our garden is growing well, though recent visitors have me a wee bit concerned. Saw a young buck and has lady-companion the other day……in the garden, eating some roses. Now I’m worried about my veggies and fruit-trees being munched on, and not having any left over for we humans. How then do we live in harmony? Isn’t that always the question, though?
Harmony: .. b. A relationship in which various components exist together without destroying one another:
I do not wish to destroy, though I understand the balance of removing, relocating, or harvesting (as examples). I am not better, the priority, or dominant, and want a chance to live and grow as well. To communicate, to cooperate, to be firm, and to find ways of negotiating so that all may have their time. Good strategies, whether they’re used with other humans, animals, or the Wild.
We’ll see how things go.
