I spent time with the baby in the garden this afternoon, and we both had fun.
The roses still have some new blossoms, but even the old ones are worth watching in this light.
The blueberry leaves are turning red almost as you watch them.
The honeysuckle that I love to photograph is still flowering a bit, but its leaves are showing the season’s wear and tear, and its energies are devoted to reddening its berries.
The spiders of early summer are many and irritating, spinning their webs at night so you catch them with your face in the morning. The remaining spiders are bigger, presumably the ones lucky or smart not to have got in the way of homo sapiens; but they’re moving slow and their webs are cluttered and tattered.
In the slanting light, the heavenly-bamboo leaves are decorated with shadows of heavenly-bamboo leaves.
Our front steps need sweeping.
