Late August always tends to make me realize just how close we are to the summer’s end. And although I prefer spring and fall temperature-wise, there is something about the summer that makes everything feel a bit more relaxed and almost carefree. About this time every year it occurs to me just how quickly time does pass.

It also lets me realize that I am going to soon be cleaning up my gardens and flowerbeds in the anticipation of colder days ahead. There will be plant stakes to remove, mulch to add, plants that need divided and transplanted, and I am sure that is only the beginning.
