The weekend is here! Still summer, so I am hoping to leave work by Noon or so. I have one or two stops to make on my way home, but not really much.
Yesterday afternoon Fletch and I were enjoying our beverages on the patio and we noticed that at the edge of our property we have honeysuckle blooming again!
It's right in the midst of a Rose of Sharon tree - so nice to see as the Rose of Sharon blooms are beginning to dwindle.
Then we were gazing at the vegetable garden (which is looking pretty spent these days) and noticed that the hibiscus had a lot of blooms (after looking like it was finished):
We did see a hummingbird, but he/she did not go for the hibiscus. There are a few late blooms on our trumpet vine that were attracting him/her. We have a lot of cat birds around this year and there are still brilliant goldfinches coming to our thistle feeder.
Yesterday I managed to finish "The Dakota Winters" at lunch. Despite it taking me longer than it should have, I did enjoy this read. A good look back at NYC. Last night I started reading The Day The World Came to Town and also Late Migrations and am enjoying both.
Weekend plans include meeting up with Dee tomorrow for some coffee and knitting. This weekend is the 58th Philly Folk Festival which is not too far from us. Often Fletch and I have either walked or biked on a rails-to-trails path that goes right behind the Old Pool Farm where the Festival is held. But, the weather forecast is for pretty hot and very humid weather, so I'm thinking we will skip that.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Summer is winding down - enjoy the last of it!
