wishing summer could last forever
the scorching summer is taking its toll on the garden and while I’m trying to cut back the drastically overgrown zinnia stems, the plants are still producing blooms. This little posie landed on the bathroom counter on one of my grandmother’s luncheon plates.
and today, we took a daytrip to the shore. first trip there this summer as a matter of fact. somehow we just didn’t get around to it before but we knew the coast would be waiting for us. and it was.
and this little fellow kept us company for a while, taking a sentry post near our beach umbrella.
he did a lot of scratching with his beak and rubbing his head against his body to scratch his neck.
and he watched us watching him.
And on the drive home, we reflected that summer is nearly over. And this year, as hot as it is, I’m truly not ready. I’d be perfectly happy to push back fall another 3 months. The days have exited as quickly as the constant stream of freighters leaving the port. Bon voyage, as it were.
Hope your weekend has been memorable 🙂 Thank you so much for dropping by!
