August on the Front Porch

We returned from California late on Tuesday and seem to have brought sultry heat with us.  It’s good for the plants, though a little withering for me.  Even so, August is the last full month of leisurely summer days and I am out on the porch as much as possible.  I put out my weathered polka dot tablecloth.

My handmade patriotic wreath was set away for next July and the green-ribboned bow is back.

The impatiens by the rocker and in the planter by the front door are fuller at this point in the summer.

August mornings are a reminder that summer is fleeting.  I’m determined to enjoy them, heat and all.
