Of course I could go on and on about the Tuesday view this week, but free time has been in short supply lately. The kids are back into their routine and there seems to be an endless parade of games and practices and parties and very little time for anything else… unless you count Sunday afternoon. It was a beautiful afternoon and a big chunk of time was set aside to just soak up the sun and enjoy the last days of summer. Some gardeners can’t sit still when there’s work to do. I’m not one of them.
Even though the gnats are terrible I must have spent a good couple hours here and there in protected locations just taking it all in. Usually ‘taking it in’ included a drink or snack or just sitting and staring but I made sure to slow down and enjoy. If you want to think of it as being careful that would be more polite than considering it lazy. You never know what next week will bring so it’s always safer to enjoy things while they’re here.
There are still a few things to come for autumn but we’re almost at the end of the Tuesday road. Chrysanthemums and asters are maybe another week or two and then after that it’s cleanup and frost. Ouch. It hurts to even say the F word.
So this week it’s a calm and mellow contribution to Cathy’s Tuesday View. The weather here and the time of year seem to demand it but if you’d like to visit with a few other more industrious gardeners give Words and Herbs a visit and see what Cathy and others are up to as they track their Tuesdays throughout the year. Have a good one!
