Backlit summer evenings
I know I've posted my neighbor's roses before, but I just can't resist them when the sun is setting behind them.
Same goes for my crepe myrtle tree. Summer has been a little "off" this year. Generally cooler than normal. Not that I'm complaining. But true to tradition, now that school is starting, it's hot.
We don't really have 4 seasons by the calendar. Summer lingers and fall sneaks by almost unnoticed, except for the shorter days and longer shadows. Even the leaves don't all get around to falling until winter. In winter, if we're lucky, we get rain, and with the rain comes a spring-like explosion of new growth (but still in winter.)
I'm looking forward to cooler temperatures and rain, eventually.
