August … you amaze me … I love all your beautiful imperfections, and your beautiful colours.
Weeds, bug-eaten leaves, seed pods.
Greens, yellows, oranges, reds.
Berries, lilies, dahlias.
… my perfectly imperfect (needs to be weeded) garden …
Our summer has been so hot and dry. Today the temperature reached 29C (and I begin to melt at 25C) but now, thankfully, the nights cool down to 12C or so … truly a blessing when one does not have air conditioning in their home.
The mornings are cool, and a thick layer of dew covers the lawn, and the garden, and the deck. It doesn’t dry up until after 10:00 am … and it’s bliss. That’s when you’ll find me out in the yard, pulling a few weeds, taking a few photos, and arranging berries and flowers on tabletops.
… just having an “unwinding” kinda day …
