Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.

I was thinking the same thing, especially since it got down to 49 degrees last night! But the colors in the fields have said fall for weeks now. sigh,

It’s a gorgeous SUMMER day here — 64°F with cool, clear breezes. With nearly a month of summer left–and though I love the fall–this is a PERFECT summer day to me, and I wish they were all like this. 🙂 Much better than the heat and humidity.
