Waning Summer Days
A few lingering signs of summer along the Grand Union Canal -- tall sunflowers nodding their heavy heads, and a bumper crop of tomatoes growing on top of a houseboat.
That's pretty smart, growing the tomatoes right in the bags of soil. Who needs a pot? I'm surprised there's enough root space in there, but they seem happy.
We are definitely moving into fall. I wore a jacket this morning (55º F) when I walked Olga, who did not want to get out of her warm bed at 5:30 a.m. It's basically unheard of for the dog to want to stay in bed! Maybe we're all slipping into hibernation mode.
