Kissing Summer Goodbye

Just now, as we mark the last day of summer, my garden enters its most glorious phase. Busy bees of many varieties, butterflies and birds all scamper through exploding marigolds, overgrown grass and plastered walnut leaves to reap intoxicating nectar that I whiz by and miss entirely. Finches pull at sunflowers, mockingbirds nibble at pokeweed and jays grab hackberries. The squirrels always seem to find something. It's a feast!
