Ah Summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it. – Russel Baker
Intense heat, bright sunshine, beautiful flowers, and a little bit of suffering is ours in late summertime. I’ve had a busy last few weeks working, canning and freezing summer fruit, and watering. Watering is now a daily chore as I try to keep my flowers alive in this heat. About this time of year when the temperatures climb into the high 90′s, I begin to look towards the new season with a bitter sweet longing. I will miss the flowers, the warm sunshine, the fruit fresh from the farms. And yet I long for cool crisp autumn days, pumpkins and leaves on the ground. Ah…summertime!
