First Photo: September 2015
It seems that we blinked and August was over. As I thought it would be, it was a crunchy month. With very little rain, the grass, gardens, and stream all dried out.
But, with the dryness came visitors. Several frogs that would normally make their homes in the stream found the patio waterfall a suitable second choice and their presence has been a delight. The Hummingbirds have been "flocking" to the feeder as only they can do. Arial wars have been abundant since they don't share all that well.
With help from the sprinkler, the vegetable garden is thriving. There have been a few surprises and no real failures (unless you count poorly planted garlic last Fall). We have been enjoying the fruits of our labor, literally, and have been able to share some with family and coworkers.
I look forward to see, slowly, leisurely, deliberately, what this month will bring. I don't want to blink and miss it.
