The Scapes of Late August

Today, my granddaughter, Maia, turned 10.  Today, my daughter started nurse practitioner school.  Today, I interviewed for a job.  And, today Ruby Stella started sending up a new scape.  It is late August.  Back to school time.  And, I still have scapes.  I might – just might – make it to freeze.  In spring these things are thick as fur on an angora.  Now, I savor each one.   When I brought Ruby home, she had one bud left . . . that has been a month ago.  A sign that the earth is still alive.

And, both colors of Stella:

It is threatening to rain . . . it is suppose to be raining.  At least it is cool.  Not a drop on my desert daylilies yet, though.  Come on, August showers bring September growth.  Getting strong for the spring.
