Summer is slowly sliding by.
The proof is in the daylilies.
Their lush bursts of color are finally blinking out, and are
now only lonesome bright dashes in the garden landscape.
Out of dozens and dozens,
only two blooms of Joan Senior remain.
Eenie Fanfare - completely gone.
These have been divided and divided, spread far and wide in the garden.
They GLOW from afar when the sun lights them, and even in the gloaming.
What a great word - exactly fitting what it names.
Now they're all spent.
This morning I spent a couple of hours cutting them all back,
giving these ladies their fall hairdo. Garden tasks mark time's passing.
The summer is slowly sliding away.
