Now that we are in mid-September, we may realise that warm balmy weather is but a temporary phenomenon. For some this may be a happy prospect that signals the return to more mild temperatures. Others may be waiting for the crispness of winter and all that that brings. Probably everyone has a favourite time of year. However, we should welcome all the seasons and rejoice in the contrast. In all aspects of our life we need balance. We need the four seasons to provide rest and rejuvenation for the soil and so that the right nutrients can be provided for new growth.
