Hold On To Summer

With raspberries growing on your deck.

Right on our deck, a raspberry bramble has been growing all season long.

Though I am devoted to my cosmos, zinnias and sunflowers as the epitome of what Summer can bring, I have to confess that the raspberry holds a power over me that is most poignant:  memories of picking raspberries in my old twenties on Martha’s Vineyard.

Without fail I am transported back into those farm’s brambles every time I see these sweet gems.

Cup of nostalgia

Anyone who follows a calendar can see that summer is about to bid adieu to make room for autumn and her big rumpus.   And though I love both seasons, transitions are challenging––you’re not always ready to make the change, are you?

I’ll be eating raspberries ’til the end.
