They say with the coming of Labor Day it's the end of summer. I guess this means I need to take down the Americana decorations and pull out the fall ones.
It has finally cooled off a bit and my flowers are finally starting to look healthy and less....dead.
The chickens are out moving around the yard again and not huddled under the porch trying to escape the heat.
My flowers may be all perky and beautiful but the garden, I think, is finally starting to die. Thank God! I really am tired of canning.
My friend Rachel says this is Mother Nature's way of getting the Midwesterner to look forward to winter. You are so sick of canning, preserving, and the heat that you actually look forward to the wind, snow and bitter cold. I think I agree.
