The time had come to say farewell. Asarum was full of eagerness to see his parents and neighbors, and to live once again in his beloved woodland. But he had come to love his cousins and their town of Summer. He would miss his little cottage, his garden, and even the Big People.

Asarum's cousins stopped by to recruit him for a game of fairy stick. They were quite surprised to find him raking up leaves. This was the sort of thing the Big People did!

Asarum and Nymphaea decided to do a little fishing one fine afternoon at the pond near Asarum's cottage. They perched on an old wooden bridge over the channel that fed the pond, chatting and laughing in between checking their lines.

A heavy July rain soaked everything in the town of Summer. Pools formed in the low places, connected by rivulets of runoff. Perfect timing to try out the canoe Asarum had just carved from a tree limb!
