You all are saying, though it's only August 12, that you are "so done" with the scorching heat of this summer of 2010.
While I fully expect you'll be speaking bitterly about the winter cold before the year is out, I thought I'd share an early sign of autumn. It should encourage you; the summer heat won't be here forever, after all.
See? These leaves outside our upper-level screened sun porch---(our "Tree House")---are brightening already.
No, that's not the morning sun; it's autumn coloration!
A little early, but I think it may be welcome in the mercilessly sizzling days that have preceded and continued into August.
