(And maybe not even then!)
Seems like all I've been hearing lately is how "summer is over", how "it feels like fall is in the air", "I'm soooo ready for autumn". One of my co-workers even wore a sweater to work this week!
The horror of it all!
Maybe you can tell; I'm NOT ready for summer to end!
And summer still reigns in our garden. The proof:
Just look at these volunteer morning glories blooming on our trellis.
Could they look so pretty if fall were just around the corner? I think not!
Here's Chelsea, enjoying the warm summer sunshine....
Do you have these big garden spiders? They're a sign of summer, right?
Do you see any blooms on this aster?
No, you do not.
Asters bloom in the fall, not in the summer.
Jessie; enjoying his summertime with the "girls".
Another summer activity: Jelly Bean and Ginger try to help me with the crossword........
.....or possibly they just like the look of that pepperoni.....
This Japanese Anemone blooming in the garden is an anomaly.
Because they are a fall flower.
Evidence of last nights dinner in the garden.
No, no one needed a sweater or a jacket because it's summer.
We did have to turn on the yard light around nine o'clock but that's only because the sun decided not to cooperate.
Speaking of dinner, this was my breakfast this morning; Moroccan Serpent Cake.
(You can find the recipe here.)
My French teacher, who happens to be from Morocco, joined us for dinner. He said this dessert was traditional but it needed to be topped with honey. I did that later and it was the perfect touch.
And how can you ask me to give up my back porch?
Not going to happen any time soon.
Because it's still summer!
What evidence are you still seeing of summer in your garden?
