As the end of summer nears, we cram in as many activities as possible, realizing the weather soon turns cool and long hours of daylight diminish, Meryl Baer of Six Decades and Counting tells us in this week’s report on our boomer blogging group.
I for one find it shocking that summer is going to end soon. I’ve so enjoyed my garden, being in the yard in the early evening every day it’s been so hot and watering my gardens has seemed almost magical.
Then, we had a couple of cooler days with wind. A few branches and quite a few leaves came down and, suddenly, my yard lost its magical look. Its summer looks old and tired, as if the fall and winter are going to overtake it.
