I love the way the intense days of summer start to mellow out at the end of August. The slightly cooler days (and nights!) give me more energy and some of the vibrant colors are fading gently in the softer light. School has started, the light evenings are noticeably shorter. There is a sense of coolness and melancholy in the air - but at the same time - that sense of a clean new slate and fresh start in fall. The sun still shines strong and hot, the flowers are still blooming and beautiful and the promise of gorgeous fall days is something I always look forward to.this then you know I adore sunflowers! Look at them taking over our vegetable patch -so cheerful!
