As the bands of clouds that forecast the coming of TS Hanna edge on it, I decide to make the most of what is left of summer.
Here in central VA (Virginia) that is a good month or more away. The first frost will come towards the end of October, and the weather will gradually cool. My pomegranates will ripen (I hope ;)) and the leaves will leave the tree. It happens a lot later than our friends to the North, and while I am enjoying the foretasting of autumn they are giving me, I am also lapping up the dregs of warm weather.
My Happy toes will stay in sandals until it is just too cold to wear them- usually around the time it is frosty ;) In the meantime, I draw them resting on a step ladder in front of me- painted toenails and all :) I will have to figure out how to make magenta paint next, because they are magenta NOT red... ;)
