INT 250 nicely lit statueOne afternoon the light just looks different. The sun streams through the trees illuminating the garden in a new way. Sitting in the garden reveals a change every few minutes as the day comes to an end.

It’s bittersweet as the beauty is tempered by the realization summer is fading fast. There’s nothing like barefoot days feasting on sweet ‘Sungold’ tomatoes and then staring at bright red hot peppers which tease taste buds to take the leap of faith for unique flavor at the expense of fiery pain.

As the maples leaves blow in the breeze they make the light dance across colorful blooms. For a brief second falling across the face of a statuary angel.

Soon the tomato jungle will be clear cut in favor of leafy greens, garlic bulbs and root crops which will keep the season going, but not in the same glorious way experienced in the depth of summer.

Enjoy the garden as summer wanes. It’s a memory that will keep us going all winter long.
