Hazy lazy days

So summer's almost over, and I can tell partly because the pastures have been burned to a crisp by the August sun. We did get some rain this week, the remnants of a tropical storm, so hopefully everything will green up again for a bit.

Also signalling the end of summer: A couple of months ago all the weed-flowers in the fields were yellow and white and then last month, some were orange. Now almost all of them are blue and purple. Fall is coming. Hopefully I'll have some more crafty content soon, when I'm spending more time indoors. Happy Labor Day!

I am pretty sure that flower is Chicory. It has always been one of my favorites. I absolutely love its colors and its hardyness. It is said that the root can be ground and used as a coffee substitute or addative but I have never tried it.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos and lovely contemplations.
