“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.”― Nathaniel Hawthorne, The American Notebooks
I stayed up late painting last night, so by the time I got up and moving and ready for my walk, it was almost noon. My house was cool, but when I walked outside, the sun was glaring down. I turned around, went back in the house, and put on a tank top. You can’t get enough vitamin D and sunshine for my liking.
Look at my single rose bush. It’s November 16th for goodness sake. This is just one single $8.99 knockout rose bush from Lowe’s that I planted two years ago. It has a dozen or more buds waiting to bloom. Thanks Mother Nature!
