Goodbye to August Photo Contest Finalist
Goodbye to August
Goodbye to August
From down the road at the Organic garden.
End of the month and going out with a Heat Wave.
Been the story of the summer but I am looking forward to the cooling temps, migrating birds and that nip in the early morning air....
Will miss the smell of fresh cut grass & flowers.
Not looking forward to closing the pool, Heating Oil delivery nor the Squirrels digging and burying acorns all over the front lawn.

Fantastic floral Jack. Heat wave up here this week but the bottoms supposed to fall out by Saturday. Like Canadian Autumn but the older I get the more I hate Canadian Winters.

The details and colors of this dahlia are fantastic! I'm looking forward to cooler temperatures and fall colors. (but not raking leaves!)

Fabulous dahlia, Jack! We're trying to deal with the 90s today and tomorrow, but after that it should be MUCH cooler. Can't wait!

Just came back in from the farm helping my son separate the bulls from the cows. It is raining and boy do we need it. I first thought I was in Monnie Ryan's gallery when I saw this Jack, this is stunningly beautiful, WTG

Gorgeous color of both the flower and b/g-- great floral, Jack!!

Might've been an SUP (Stand Up Paddle) board you saw. Those are very long and wide although I haven't seen one quite as wide as a car. Not sure about the skeg (fin) size-- most nowadays are about 4-5" deep. Were they smaller than that?

Beautiful flower Jack.

One good sign of fall I've seen, the Pelicans are back !

WE had 47 days of over 90 degree heat, a record even for us.
