The tomatoes are slowing down

The slant of the light and the earlying of the evening: it feels sudden and it’s taking me by surprise every day as if this were new to me.

Last week the littlest peach tree, in full glow of the light sunrise to nearly sunset for months, was shaded by 3:00 pm; now it is by a little after 1:00, and since this is the Baby Crawford’s first year all I can do is hope its six and a half hours (today’s count) were enough. And again I debate whether this is the year the camphor tree comes down to make more room and light for the fruit trees to grow into.

Tree service or airfare to two more weddings coming up. Well that answers that.

It’s cooler, too, and there is this sudden need to knit All The Warmth that is waiting in the skeins of patient yarn.

I’m not an avid admirer of summer but I get a little sad when the birds and crickets change to their autumn song. All too soon I’ll have to put away my flip flops and tank tops. But I get to exchange them for my luscious warm woolies so I consider it a fair trade.

Suddenly your blog showed up in my news reader – 10 days worth. It was if they had all got stuck at the Houston airport waiting to get out in a rainstorm and it kept piling and piling up until all of a sudden – poof! Get on board now to El Paso!

Not as if I know anything about that sort of thing.

Welcome home.
