It’s a Colourful World

Finally, after a cold, sullen summer, we have a burst of fiery heat in September, just in time to push the delphiniums’ second flowering into gorgeous splendour. The wet, cool summer means that for the first time the grass is green everywhere you look – not just on certain suburban yards with sprinkler systems.

It’s been 26-30 degrees C for 3 weeks now. Sun, sun, sun. The world is feeling like summer and fall all mixed together. Bright green grass and lots of flowers but the leaves are starting to turn golden and crunch underfoot.

The sky is glorious. The CSA vegetables are pouring in. The family is smiling. Everywhere I go there is a feeling of relaxation – not the crisp bustle of a typical autumn.

      It’s a potato! I believe they’re called blue potatoes even though they’re purple, but my CSA farmers are real hounds for heritage seeds and unusual breeds, so I can’t guarantee that it’s anything but a potato.

    Wow I photographed my blue potatoes too this summer!

    Came over to share of a new book, a memoir about a woman who grew up Mennonite and then left, then goes back after a divorce and some problems & writes about her life.

    Mennonite In A Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen (Henry Holt and Company)

    I haven’t read it, just saw it listed on the Library Thing Early Reviewers book list for this month.

    Hope you are all doing well!
