As the spring is slowly giving way to summer. And along with the coming summer heat we are being treated to an early rainy season. The rainy season to me is a lot like Miami weather. It rains everyday for days on end. At least the temperature stays a bit cooler.
As I was making my way to Mimomi station out in Chiba, I wandered upon a little frontside garden that had a few potted plants. My eye quickly saw a bright red tiny strawberry. The first fruits of summer. Time to give pause and thanks for the fruits that are coming to fruition.
All the flowers on the trees and plants that I have been photographing are beginning to bear fruit. Some of them will be edible like this deep red strawberry, seeds, of just giving way to the new ultra green leaves.
I strive to maintain my positive attitude. I am reminded daily by the earthquakes that there is much in my life that I have absolutely no control over. I need to let those issues slide from my spirit so as not to weigh me down with doubt and negativity.
Enjoy the fruits of the season. Even if those fruits this season will be a bit bitter sweet.
