"It is a sad moment when the first phlox appears. It is the amber light indicating the end
of the great burst of early summer and suggesting that we must now start looking
forward to autumn. Not that I have any objection to autumn as a season, full of its own
beauty; but I just cannot bear to see another summer go, and I recoil
from what the first hint of autumn means."
- Vita Sackville-West
Vita and I are in complete agreement on our feelings about the first signs of autumn. Even though this summer has been one for the record books, both in the amount of rainfall in early summer and the lack of it in August, combined with consistently hot days, we still hate to see it go.
Early this morning a gentle rain began falling . September's song is welcomed by gardeners everywhere.
