It’s been an absolutely amazing summer! Most notable is the fact that not one day has been without sunshine.
Oh, we’ve had our share of the hot and humid, and there has also been a serious lack of rain, but summers here are short, and to have one such as this is truly a gift.
Many of the trees and flowers got a bit off schedule because of the very late heavy frosts we had in May, but for the most part everything has done beautifully.
My lavender (which I just LOVE!) began blooming in June, and I noticed this morning that it looks like it may bloom once more before it rests until next year.
I actually learned this year, that some (not all types) lavender can be started from cuttings, so my kitchen windowsill is now filled with pots of cuttings, and all are doing well so far.
Even though the calendar says otherwise, here in New York, Labor Day marks the end of summer, and there is no doubt that this is true.
All the color of summer is quite muted now, and the browns are beginning to take over. The leaves are beginning to change, but not enough to provide any real color yet.
I know that will come soon enough. 🙂
Have a wonderful week!!
