Holding on to summer

I found this watercolour I hadn't finished, and
added more colour. It might be complete.  Everyone
is talking about fall, pumpkins are on sale.  Halloween 
candy has been filling the shelves in grocery stores for a month,
but I am holding on.

In the daytime now it can still be quite hot, but most of the time it
is perfect out -- the best -- warm, but not hot -- energizing. At
night the fall cool hits, and of course eventually both the cold
and the night will win out, and we will live through those 
short days, and long nights, and bebam it will be winter.

But right now our white anemones are six feet tall, and a mass
of white blooms.  Our back porch is newly painted and rebuilt and
the gleaming white shouts out summer, summer, summer!  Yes.

A great night tonight at the Heliconian Club, but more about
that tomorrow.  

Have a holding onto summer day.
