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.

Your photos are beautiful. I love the purple theme that flows through… Enjoy your late summer!
I just want to second that – that your photos are always beautiful!
The images and colors in that mosaic are stunning. I LOVE this time of year!
The photos are just beautiful. What vegetable is it in the 4th photo?
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.
Hey…I didn’t know you were already in a CSA! Sorry for spamming you about mine if I ever did.
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!
