Last week we went to visit the gardens.
And how thankful I am that we did.
Because I need to look at these pictures, flowers in bloom, t-shirts/shorts, and sunshine, to remind myself that it was just last week.
What a difference a week makes. Now it is cool, rainy, cloudy, with the yellow hue of birch leaves in the trees and red cranberry leaves on the ground filling our world with those autumn colors.
How thankful I am that we went to the gardens last week. As we all ate ice cream in the sun we had no idea what a few days would do to our world.
Here in Fairbanks one week means what once was summer is now fall.
