Mid August in the Sandbox

August 14 mosaic

I can hear the crickets now in the mornings singing loudly and the dew on the ground is getting heavier. That tells me the summer is waning and fall is not far behind.   We were at our youngest son’s house last night for dinner and the buzz is all about the upcoming wedding.  They are counting down the weeks and everyone is so excited that it get here quickly.   I am too.   I am looking forward to it but it means that fall will be here then and the gardening season will be close to a close.   Oh that makes me unhappy.    Enjoy the colour in the garden now.   Hubby and I are off tomorrow for a little camping trip in the pop up camper.   The garden is in good hands while we are away.  I will attempt to stop comments as I will not be here to receive them.   Hope to have some new photos for you to see when I get back.  In the mean time have a wonderful week.    Valerie

The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
