End of Summer
It's that time of the year. We've crested over the summer hump and the heat has finally broken to where it even gets cool enough at night that we pull the quilt back up around midnight. The goldfinches are eating the seed heads of the coneflowers, chicory, and my scattered, mouse-planted sunflowers. We have a glut of tomatoes and there are baby pumpkins on the vines. School buses are back on the roads and over on campus there's the countdown towards the first football game. I'm ready for fall!
