the end of a season

Rustle of wind in the leafy trees

Wine and an outdoor fire at the end of the day

Wild Salmon from the Atlantic

Smelly, dirty children with blueberry stains around their mouths and sweat stuck to their skin

Husband with a tall and broad frame moving next to boy as he rides his bike without training wheels

Girl with clumps of summer in her hair playing la la with her favorite friends, her fingers!

Furthermore: Fatty Bombalatty

Apple tree which dumps a dozen apples on our sidewalk for the kids to pick up and eat two months out of the year

Sunshine that melts into your skin. Warm. Indulgent!

Lavendar from my garden. Garden. Garden. Tomatoes, purple and red peppers, eggplant, strawberries, onions, cosmos, roses, squash, pumpkin, carrots, beets, zucchini, mint, basil, rosemary, cantaloupe, raspberries, cabbage, nasturtium…. Accomplishment!

Line drying

Picnic Table dinners

Windows open at night. Underwear for pajamas. Bare feet. Flip flops.

Sweat

Tan skin

Freckles

Fire flies

The fear of impending winter and more snow than is necessary….

Life is sunny and open windows. Neighbors are seen and heard. Crickets lull us to sleep and flowers fill their air with essence. It’s summer! The end of summer.

This may be the last one here for us!
