Yesterday afternoon, thunder rumbled a warning, "Hurry."
So I did. But I still arrived home from my walk drenched and in need of a change of clothing.
This morning, the clouds whispered, "Soon."
So I went into the garden and picked two bowls of tomatoes, 8 squash (butternut and delicata), a huge basket of basil, a few carrots, and a cup or so of raspberries. I tore vines from the ground to place in the compost bin, closed one side of the tomato house, and ate a few small blueberries.
"It's coming," drowsed the bees sleeping soundly in the dahlia.
So I clipped a bouquet of cosmos,
and one of dahlias. Ready or not, Autumn is coming soon. Are you ready?
