"August rushes by like desert rainfall, a flood of frenzied upheaval, expected, but still catching me unprepared.   Like a match flame bursting on the scene, heat and haze of crimson sunsets.   Like a dream of moon and dark barely recalled, a  moment, shadows caught in a blink.   Like a quick kiss; one wishes for more but it suddenly turns to leave, dragging summer away."
    ~Elizabeth Maua Taylor~

"Whilst August yet wears her golden crown, ripening fields lush-bright with promise; summer waxes long, then wanes, quietly passing her fading green glory on to riotous autumn."

Hello dear Madeline

I can't believe we are at the end of August - it has simply flown by.
With Spring waiting in the wings the days are gradually warming, I am hearing birdsong again which makes my heart sing too!
My garden is calling, I spent a few hours last weekend pulling weeds and planning what I will plant!
I have a little garden notebook (my son gave me years ago) where I make notes on planting schemes and list plants I hope to buy - it's a fun thing to do sitting by the fire during winter! I cut out images from magazines to inspire me too!
It's lovely to catch up with you Madeline, you are such a faithful follower of mine and I love reading your comments - thank you!
Take care
