It's that time of year! Sunflower August ... all the windows are opened to a cool breeze that heralds fall days to come! The perennial gardens are starting to look tired, but the marigolds and sunflowers pick up the slack.
The neighbor's honeybees are busy flitting over the flowers and my husband has started hauling the seasoned wood toward the wood boxes in the shed behind the kitchen and out behind the wood shop.
Meanwhile, I can the tomatoes that come from the garden and bake pies with all the berries and stone fruits that are so plentiful right now ... and I take photos.
These shots made their way into posts on my food blog and over to my Facebook page. The colors are just so cheerful and vivid and I have been trying to counteract all the political grumbling and off-color jokes that make their way onto the Facebook Wall of Notifications ... what can I say? I'm a Pollyanna.
Yup ... we're busy little bees here in the grey cottage on the hill. It's late summer and we're getting ready to button things up for autumn's arrival. But we're not too busy to enjoy the blue skies and the cool breezes in our little place on Earth!
Here's hoping you're enjoying your little spot too!
