The Changing Seasons, August 2022

Reflecting on the month past

It’s been a fairly serene month, with a return to routines as Loving Husband begins a new school year.

This idyllic scene captured during one of our runs in the Whampoa/Balestier area sums up how I feel about August.

We’ve also had a lot of rain, so the weather is cooler.

For some reason, this tree outside my bedroom window is a popular spot for birds to congregate just before a storm. This past week, it was these Pied Imperial Pigeons.

How was your August?

About The Changing Seasons

The Changing Seasons is a monthly project where bloggers around the world share their thoughts and feelings about the month just gone. We all approach this slightly differently, though generally with an emphasis on the photos we’ve taken during the month.

For many of us, looking back over these photos provides the structure and narrative of our post, so each month is different. Some focus on documenting the changes in a particular project — such as a garden, an art or craft project, or a photographic diary of a familiar landscape.

But in the end, it is your changing season, and you should approach it however works for you.

There are no fixed rules around post length or photo number — just a request that you respect your readers’ time and engagement.

  1. Hi Ju-Lyn, you’re right; it has been a while. The photo of the man fishing is wonderful, he looks very much at home and relaxed. There has been a significant amount of rain in New Zealand, not too bad in the Bay of Plenty compared to the Nelson area.


    1. So happy to share in your month … I know what you mean thought, we mark time quite differently and we remember quite poorly sometimes. But it was a fairly calm month with nothing too exciting – spent most of it helping Younger Child edit her poems for South East Asia Poetry Writing Month. So they kept me diverted

  2. I love the glassy water and the fisherman and that brilliant reflection. The birds look rather amazing. You’re getting plenty of rain, so if you feel inclines, send some over this way. We’re still awfully dry — and hot, hot, HOT. My post will be up in the morning. I’m just finishing it now.


    1. If you can believe it, these past few weeks have seen even more rain! I wish I could send you bucket loads to quench the parched earth; unless you’ve received some rain already since autumn should be well on the way …


      1. We have gotten two pretty substantial rains. We are still down about 5 inches, but more rain is expected next week as a couple of tropical storms are wicked busy in the Caribbean this week. We won’t get the winds, but we will probably get plenty of rain. It’s still very dry out west, but we’re on the Atlantic coast, way up north and have a very different weather pattern. I’m sure they’d gladly take any rain you could send them. They’ve been in a major drought for years and one has to wonder how long before they simply run out of water entirely.
