Is it hot in here, or is it me?
Now there's a familiar saying for women my age.
But this morning I'm
hot melting for another reason.
I just came in from watering my garden, filling the bird bath and doing a bit of pruning. Now I have to cool down before I can even think about facing the steamy shower. We're headed for 95 degrees today. I think I can honestly say that I am so.over.this.heat!!
As I've been visiting blogland, it seems there are some of us who wouldn't mind seeing summer end and others who are in no hurry for it.
I seemed to notice this same thing in the garden this morning. Some of the flowers seem to be thriving.
In some cases they were doing better now than they've done all summer.
Although many are content that it is still hot, humid and, well ... summer. There were others who seem to think they're also so.over.this.heat and are ready to bring on the cooler temperatures of well ... fall.
For instance, this beautyberry bush is beginning to change from green berries to light purple. By September those berries will be a gorgeous shade of purple.
As I stood under the oak tree enjoying the shade it offered, I looked up and saw this. Made me think the mighty oak is also ready to move on.
Looks like Mr. Dogwood might be ready to jump on the fall bandwagon.
Those don't look like summer colors to me ;-).
This plant was new to my garden this year.
It has looked a bit like an ugly weed, but I did have a reason for buying it.
The tag said it would grow little decorative pumpkins in the fall.
I guess it's no secret which way it's leaning.
How about you ~ which way are you leaning?
