It's late September now; a time when Summer comes to an end and us midwesterners start preparing for the cold.
However, I (Kristen- Jori's new admin) recently took a trip to Colorado and was quickly reminded that Summer is still alive and well. While walking through the city landscape, bright yellow faces caught my eye. It was a sunflower plant growing from gravel...literally (see picture below). Even this flowering beauty was grasping for the warmth of summer sunshine rays. This was a small reminder that the season is still going strong even after festivals have slowed, school has started and Labor Day has passed- Summer still lives.
So don't wish it away friends- embrace the last days with smiling faces like that of our good friend the Helianthus (the Sun Flower).
