In our house we are taking things easy, breathing slowly and looking forward to late September when spring feels real rather than the occasional glimpse of warmth that disappears under a flurry of cold wind and torrential rain. I am daydreaming of later sunsets and warmer evenings; the opportunity to plant my new garden beds and sit on the verandah in the hazy dusk and watch them grow. These jam jar lanterns conjure this perfectly for me. It will be here soon. We will get there.
