End of Summer Blues
You can feel it in the air, even though it's still stinky hot in the afternoon. You can see it in the light. The plants know it. They're still pushing out blooms but you can tell it takes some effort. The tomato plants are all thrilled to be giving it all they've got and more. They even taste like it's now or never. Brilliant, tomato ecstasy, so acidy and sweetly in the moment. It's almost like they know they've only got today. One cold night and they'll be flat on the ground, dead. So will the impatience plants who finally look like they're enjoying the season. Summer only just arrived. How can it be on it's way out?
