It's late into the summer and I linger in my garden wanting things to last just a wee bit longer.
Savoring the colors fading away, the sweet smell of ripe fruit, and flowers dropping their petals and seeds to spring next years bounty.
It is such a lovely time of the year.
The verge of a new season, and crisp and clear as day, the waning breezes of summer are coming to a close.
My herb gardens, planted this year, are starting to burst with provision.
I am somewhat of a wild gardener...can you tell?
I like plants to fill in and self seed.
It is fun to see the abundance the following year.
I left them, thinking it is a quaint entrance into that side of the herb garden.
The fruit trees produced so much this year!
I probably should have thinned at some point, but even with stakes I think the branches might snap.
Soon, we will have applesauce galore, and apple fruit leather, and frozen apple pies!
So we enjoy the warm days and cool mornings together.
The filtered sunlight is perfect in the heat of the day and a little breeze wafts through the stalks.
A happy mix of days outdoors, bounty, and harvest!
Hope you are having the best day...
