The End of Summer

Perhaps I’ve said this too soon but if you were to ask Lee she would tell you that Summer is over.  Lee went back to school last Thursday. As for me, I think Labor Weekend marks the end of Summer, so Summer is not over yet. We still have this week to enjoy.

These photos can qualify as a Saturday Random Photos post, something that I have not done in a while.  This frog has been living in my sister’s fishpond. It got away before I could get another clear shot.

My dad’s crab apple tree bears many fruits this year.  I had some with hot sauce on Saturday and it was delicious.

My dad’s Asian pumpkins grown on trellis. I guess you can grow almost any kind of climbing plants on trellis, this made me think of watermelon.  I wonder how it would do on trellis, maybe the fruits will be too heavy.

This is a late bloomer for his string beans.

It’s kind of fat for chili peppers but they taste the same, extremely hot.

What is left of the cucumber.

The Thai eggplants produce few fruits and far in between the last few weeks.  This one is saved for next year’s seedlings.

    • Hi Geni, she sees it everyday and claims it as her flog. I have one living on mine pond also, I need to post that. I think the summer ended too soon for the kids, but I’m glad that Lee is back in school, just not sure if she’s glad like me. :)

  1. Beautiful, beautiful captures! Love ever single of it. I am also quite sad that summer is ending soon, this year the coldness has caught up with the summer that it had ended our summer too soon. :)

    • Hi Lala, I know what you mean and your winter is a lot longer than ours. I’m concentrating on the Autumn right now, it’s so short and if I blink it might just pass me by. :)

  3. The summer is just ending too fast! Out West it stays warm up until October and visiting the beach (at least in Northern Ca) it feels the same anytime of the year.

    All the crabapples make my mouth water… yummy! And that pumpkin is so beautiful right next to the blossom. Love the photos Nye.

    • Thanks Cambree, the weather is a lot cooler in the morning and at night now. I like the cool weather also, it’s time to bring out the jacket and scarf. :)

    • I remembered living in NYC that school doesn’t start back up until after Labor Day weekend, but down South they get out of school early for the Summer vacation so I guess it’s a trade off. I love NY also, minus the snow and cold weather. :)
