Summer is....


Eating cherry tomatoes just off the vine



Walking through mud with your new Tevas on



Eating homemade Kool-Aid Popsicles on the front stoop with Dad


Having an over abundance of pumpkins in August and a tomato with stretch mark issues (do you think it just had a baby too?) that Worth has declared the best tasting tomato this year!
















These pumpkins get me excited for my favorite time of year, fall. I don't want to wish summer away by any means. The end of summer is always sad, it means getting back to the grind of work even though I have been out of school for years. The public school kids are already back at school, my heart breaks for them a little bit. The pools are all closing down for the summer even though hot days are far from gone. I looked outside the other day and saw leaves changing. Worth and Ben told me it is just because the trees are dying from lack of rain, I choose to believe different and just think it is the on set of fall. Whatever your feelings are about the change of seasons I hope you embrace these final days of summer, I know we will.

Don't count summer off too soon! Before I know it up here it will be cold, then colder, and when I'm going out of my mind hoping that spring is to arrive soon, you guessed it...it will still be cold! =) I've been warned by some veterans about the length of Boston winters. BR is beautifully sticky. Such a summer scene. It was so good to talk to you the other day! We need to do that more often. Oh, and your pumpkins are beautiful too! I do love the fall, I just don't like what follows it...

Sunday your pumpkins are amazing this year and just looking at your pics of them makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I love Fall too and especially all the beautiful colors this sason produces. You and Worth really deserve a pat on the back for your garden this year!

I am so jealous of your garden. Do you and Worth do consulting work? Ours is just ok this year.
