Even as the sun bore down on us this past weekend, 
the dried stalks of the echinacea and the black eyes of stalks 
of black-eyed susans tell us the end of summer is near.
Tired and worn, these flowers accompany others in
 a bitter sweet parade: as the seasons change, 
they take with them memories
of their bright colors and aromas.

Whew! The end of the hot, sticky suckiness of summer draws near and we can look forward to fresh, cool air and the glorious colours of autumn.
