It was a different kind of summer. It was a summer when many of my flowerpots remained empty and I spent almost no time sitting outside. The overwhelming growth of the trees, plants and shrubs around my house made me feel like I was living in a forest. It was beautiful in its own way, still I felt overpowered, dwarfed by it all.
