Calendar says summer, thermometer says winter. There’s fresh snow on the peaks and this morning’s temp of 24 is a new record low for this date.
Knowing the end was near, I lingered in the yard yesterday, saying goodbye to summer flowers. That’s when I realized I needed a bouquet.
My Last Chance Summer Bouquet consists of bee balm, cosmos, snap dragons, daisies, Echinacea, larkspur, lavender, Cupid’s dart and Russian sage.
By morning the flowers had bowed down to the cold. This is the end of a very short summer.
