Yesterday evening, the waning sunlight was so decadent in the garden, I had to run back inside to get my camera.
Summer is pretty much over, isn’t it?
And yet we’ve only had 5 red tomatoes all year.
The snails and slugs did a number on the entire garden.
I’m not sure these melons will ever ripen to where they need to be.
Meanwhile many things ripened too quickly.
But the roses have bloomed again –
adding their perfume to the medley of scents –
and the kiwi is climbing along the fence.
The wildflowers are still working their magic
and the planted flowers retain their vibrancy.
We can still have tea on the patio for a bit longer
and Hunter still runs free.
But there is definitely an end to the summer era
and school has begun.
And I just never get tired of all this bounty.
