Low 57 F
Summer has slipped away, and I hardly noticed, what with all that getting the kids ready to go back to school and all that the resumption of school entail. But now, finally, the rain has returned, the air has cooled, and quiet has again descended on Casa Squirrelhaven and environs. I have the time now to look at the garden, where I find foliage and berries already showing autumnal tints. The flowers of summer are making way for those of autumn. When the rain stops, the lawn will need to be raked for the first time. The final scene is set for the garden, and I look forward to the dramatic finish.
