After a couple of weeks of no rain and very high temperatures, the rain has arrived.
Many blooms are spent. But they still hold beauty. I'm in no rush to deadhead. I want seeds spread for next year.
Some blooms are at their peak today. Like this rose I picked.
And this one. Still a lovely bud.
But even if I was blindfolded, I'd know it's late summer. The crickets are singing 24/7 now. I still hear the katydids at night, the locusts during the day. But the crickets will continue nonstop until the first couple of frosts have come and gone.
Every couple of months, I watch the season change. I watch the subtle nuances in the transition, and I mark the day it changes, a little different each year. It's fascinating and wondrous, and I am enchanted by it.
I join thetablescaper.blogspot.com/ to celebrate another Summer Sunday, while they last!
Have a delightful Sunday!
