Of late we are getting rainfall, much needed and much appreciated. The threat of forest fires is greatly reduced now and the Chama Canyon is once again “turning green,” as it usually does in July and August.
These days we are getting various landscaping projects competed, especially outside our monastery church. Russian sage (in today’s photo) and Rose of Sharon are currently blooming on our property.
Forest Service Road 151 leading to the Monastery is muddy in places just now, but hopefully dry again shortly. Daytime temperatures are still in the mid to high
The start of Autumn is just a few days away. May it be a peaceful season for all, especially those who are harvesting fruit and produce.
