The End is Nigh! Ugh.
August first or as we say in Canada, "ahhh crap! It's the first of August, summer will soon be over, bleep "! I already noticed last night as I was driving home along the river, the land is lower there and even though it was only 7:40 p.m. the sun was not able to shine there, it was already blocked by the hills to the west. Fall is coming, everyone look busy! For us in this area, September is completely unpredictable, it could be hot and humid like summer or cold with frost at night.
I always have a "hurry up and get things done feeling" when August comes. Any outdoor painting etc, only has about four weeks left to be done. Anyway today is a beautiful sunny day, no humidity, gorgeous actually so I'm going to get my butt in gear.
I know it's silly but I always feel sad for the garden plants and flowers that no one bought in the stores. I hate walking by and seeing them there, like a sad puppy, hoping that someone will give them a home. Especially for the ones abused by the people taking care of them that don't know or care about them, half dead, half dried out and a sick yellow/green colour. Sometimes I buy last minute plants on sale just to give them a happy home. It's too late now and I have enough this year. Sorry little tomato plants and flowers, you will never know love, you are headed for the garbage. :(... poor little girls. Seriously I'm way too empathetic!
