Sweet Season




I was out in the garden yesterday morning harvesting.

The dew was heavy.
The sun was peaking in and out behind some morning clouds.

I was geared up in long clothes hoping to avoid the worst of the bug swarms.

SM was on the back porch swing waking up with a cuppa joe, radio softly playing some oldies.

I hummed along as I worked, wiping the sweat from my brow. 

It's not necessary to look at the weather forecast anymore.  We're in our typical summer pattern of 90's with pop-up afternoon storms. 

Hit and miss.
I'm hoping for a hit really soon. 
The garden is getting thirsty.

I haul in my bag of broccoli and carrots and what do I hear playing on the radio?

Sweet Season.

Yes, my friends...It is indeed a sweet season.




Look at that. 
Sweet indeed!
