Daisy …Daisy…Give me your answer do
And my question was “do you know when summer will end” ? These pin head sized Daisy flowers ( Erigeron) are noted as early summer flowers yet here we are at the end of August still enjoying this cushion of sparkling colour.
Yes, it is hard to believe that tomorrow is the last day of August. Then we move into September…..just another month, well maybe but it is the month we start to see noticeable changes to both day length and the growth of our trees and plants…not autumn for some weeks yet but the signs will start to show with increased dominance.
It is though worth remembering at this step change in the year that we still have 4 months (thats a third of the year) to enjoy before the cycle starts again.
So Thank You little Daisy….perhaps the best is yet to come.
