Goodbye Summer?

I can feel summer coming to an end. Here are the indications: It is no longer too hot to sit by the fire at 6:30 and roast a hot dog for dinner like we did last night, I have 3 pumpkins the size of basketballs and around 20 smaller ones, one of my fall blooming mums has opened 3 orange/brownish blooms and the other plants are LOADED with buds, I got a bag of corn mysteriously dropped on my front porch yesterday, there was ice in my lawn hose two mornings ago, my little girl goes to school next week, the oak brush is starting to change on the hills above Midway, and I am finally tired of gardening.
I am not to sure I am ready for summer to be over though. So these things make me feel better: The pumpkins are still green and not orange yet, it is still a little too warm to play outside at noon, and I still have to drag my hoses all over to get my lawn watered!

It is sad to see summer come and go, but at least it will start to be a little bit cooler! Looks like you had a fun night!

I know that summer is coming to an end because I am actually looking forward to wearing my winter clothes. I miss some of them--Jared even said the same thing!
