A lot of us didn't have the summer we're used to having and it is a bitter disappointment to face reality and the thoughts of the S word in December and January. Many of us feel cheated. We do with regards to the lack of our usual tomato crop, for sure.
On the other hand the dahlias are so glorious that I'm just enjoying them immensely.
I have started a petition among my family to get May and June back...this was not the season to be gardening and I am more than a bit reluctant to start reading my notes for October Appts. :(
On the positive side, my Japanese anemone is blooming and the tall toad lilies opened up on Wed.
