|Winter on its way? Tee hee! I usually tell my dear hubby|
off for that sort of comment.
"No time to take a breath because winter is on the way. I feel it in weeds I pull – they don’t yield like they did a few weeks ago. I smell it on the air, the first leaves decaying, and the scent of elder flowers always means don’t tarry with those tasks, this is a fleeting time. Soon the mornings will be brisk and you’ll see your breath. Hurry Hurry!"The year has turned here in Latvia in the same way it has in Wisconsin. The summer seems to be all too soon flying away and harvest time has arrived. Summer has struggled here in Latvia, we've had some high temperatures but we have also had too many cool nights. Some plants that normally do well haven't thrived, like the beans that usually are very well behaved and produce prolifically are still struggling to grow, whereas some things that struggle in the heat normally, like brassicas and peas are doing really well and we only just hitting the problems with caterpillars now. The soft fruit is now just about in, the last of the gooseberries are picked and I even got some bonus red ones from a neighbour who had had enough of them and invited me to pick from his bush - my it was a vicious bush and no wonder he had had enough picking them as they fought a good fight to prevent me picking them too with all the thorns. Just got some blackcurrants left to pick and then hack back and it will be finished.
|At least we still have blue skies and green grass for now|
|Hoppy and her mates. Not quite the city centre but then|
we didn't take any photos there
|Who are you looking at?|
|It's a hard life isn't it? Catching a snooze in the caravan.|
You'd never catch us doing such a thing now would you?
Errmmm well perhaps you would from time to time.
|I don't sleep all the time|
|Okay to me it looks like an upside down pig, |
how about you?
