I love summer.
The sunshine, the heat, the music, the fruity drinks, barbecue’s with friends, outdoor movies, days spent swimming, wearing shorts and sandals, even, working in the garden…I love it all. So, when I know it is coming to an end, I get a bit sad. All I want to do is hang onto it for as long as I can.
I didn’t even feel like picking up a camera today, and didn’t for most of it. However, right before the sun was about to dip below the horizon, I caught a glimpse of the gaillardia blooms. They were almost glowing, set afire by the colors of the setting September sun.
I know I can’t stop the changing of the seasons, but, when those northern winds start to blow, one look at this sunny bloom and I will have my summer feeling once again!
