“Next year, no gardens,” he say’s.
It’s with the utmost concern in his
voice, it’s a suggestion, because he
is overly worried about me.
I’ve spent a good part of
our first summer up here as a indoor
captive but it’s not really any different
then any other summer in the last few
Does summer make it hard for
to go outside also?
Something out there at times makes it hard for me to be outside, a rash all over, vertigo, and other assorted allergy symptoms have combined to make this a summer season not to be enjoyed. I am hoping that the rain not yet forecasted will help with my allergies.
Add in excessive heat, the kind that blasts through the door as you open it, and summer up here is best enjoyed from behind the window.
But it seems that the hot spell is finally over, we have had a few cool nights, and a lovely cooler day, what a relief. Although many of the temperatures will still easily reach 30C here, the cooler nights, and mornings will make me shiver as I drag that hose around the garden.
As much as I love summer, I am looking forward to turning on the oven, baking deserts, breads, casseroles, and anything roasted again. Salads are wonderful, but too much of a good thing can be just too much. The squash shall be ready, and the apple crop will be harvested soon, I can’t wait.
What part of the cooling down of summer is the most pleasing to you?
