This week’s Think Write Thursday topic is to write a post to welcome August.
“August, the summer’s last messenger of misery, is a hollow actor. – Henry Rollins
I have very mixed emotions about you. You usher in the end of summer and you always go racing by.
You think that your cooling nights will distract me from your noticeably shorter days – but the fading light makes me so sad.
And while my garden is heavy laden with fruits yet to ripen; we cling to your warm sunny days.
Perhaps, this year you will linger well beyond your numbered days.
At least, that is my wish!
If you want to see what others had to say to August, you will find them here. If you want to join Carole and me on Think Write Thursday’s, you can sign up here!
I love all your varieties of tomatoes in stages of ripening! Soon!
i cling to these days too! August. A great month, but Zach’s leaving again at August’s end. Im trying very hard to be happy he is here now and not fret about his leaving again. Love your tomatoes!
I wish my tomatoes were ripening! I just have this feeling that it will happen when we’re on vacation and I’ll come back to rot.
These next couple of weeks fly by and then I am back at school. Where has the summer gone?
It seems like we all have a kind of love/hate relationship with August 😉 Your tomato harvest looks promising and delicious; here’s to celebrating every last bit of summer!
We’ve had such a wet summer — improved only slightly in the latter part of July — that I, too, am really hoping for August to linger…
You reminded me of another good thing about August: homegrown tomatoes!
August tends to be our hottest month and then it seems to take forever for it to cool down-like October!
Fresh tomatoes make up for anything negative I feel about August. Usually she starts out HOT, but the nights start to cool. The jury is out after this years record-breaking heat.
Linger, August! Linger. . . I always hate to see summer end. I’m determined to soak up every bit of what’s left of summer. XO
