Flora

Dogwood colorIt’s been unseasonably cool lately. It’s actually hard to believe it’s August with temps down in the 40’s at night and barely making 70 during the day. There are little hints that Fall is not all that far away. One of them is this Dogwood at the edge of the woods. We’ve had a dry spell too and the stress is showing with the early color, so vivid next to the lush green backdrop. Summers here are so short and precious, and the weatherman is predicting warmer days ahead – up to 80. I’m looking forward to soaking up the sun as the summer winds down.

My garden is blooming heartily and I’m including a little sampling of color:
