It's not really the last day of summer according to the calendar, but the night before area children go
back to school surely feels like the last day of summer. More hot days ahead. Time for the zinnias to
go. They were pretty this year, but shouldn't have been in the flower bed in the first place.
Next year I'm envisioning a nice cutting garden. I tend to let things go when the heat index stays
over 100 for days on end.
