At about this time of year I get excited for autumn. The second half of summer is always a challenge for me. I love the beginning, but I get weary of the heat, the mosquitoes, the weeds, and the lack of rain (this year especially) by mid-July. The bluebirds, swallows, and killdeer are done, the caterpillars haven’t made it past their many predators, and it seems there’s nothing left to write.
But, a quick look around reminds me there’s still plenty of late-summer beauty to be enjoyed.
Well what do you know? Late summer’s not so bad after all. Enjoy your week!
