The dog days of summer have once again returned to Santa Rosa County.
As such, the dogs and their human companions are highly motivated to remain in any environment with cooler temperature readings.
The summer of 2021 appears to be developing as a period of liberation between two pandemics with restrictions on activities.
One of the many advantages of living in the panhandle Florida are the numerous choices for summer activities.
There is the often-quoted biblical admonition “By your fruits you will be known,” which commonly comes up when discussing behavior.
In other words, a reputation will ultimately be based on the deeds and accomplishments of an individual, family or group.
Ask any Santa Rosa County horse owner and they will say their horse has a sweet tooth.
In addition to sugar cubes there are apples, pears and many other fruits with a high sugar content which are attractive to equines everywhere.
In the days before mass-marketing, big box retailing and internet sales, people had to create their own solutions to the wants and needs of daily life.
The results were based on the materials at hand and were often imaginative, but sometimes bordering on the absurd.
The blooms and leaves have confirmed the year’s progress toward the summer. The rising temperatures and lengthening days have been a boon to the birds and animals, too.
The blossoms in Santa Rosa County are popular with insects and arachnids for a variety of reasons. Some insects enjoy the nectar and pollen, using it to great effect.
Going “green” is all the rage these days. Businesses, politicians, public figures and more are promoting their commitment to ecological purity and environmental quality.
In nature there is plenty of green this time of year, especially the chlorophyl-based pigment.
Folk wisdom can, in fact, be amazingly accurate.
Not because of some ancient or secret knowledge, but because it is attributable to generations of observation which has been confirmed time and again over the centuries.
