AUGUST RED AND GOLD!

Seeing red here on the deck! It’s harvest time in my container garden!

Thought I would post a photo of some pickings — cherry tomatoes, and rather spicy, sweet banana peppers.

2014 RED HARVEST!

August is definitely a winding down month for summer here in southern Ontario but the weather has been great for enjoying these numbered days.

Time to savour so many things: a read by the pool, catch a movie or two, listen to some tunes, see a play, to name a few. I have made my way through this list and will be ready to add some more for the last couple of weeks in August.

  • Book — I bought a red-covered paperback, Outlander, just for a summer read.
  • Movie and Music — Saw Country Strong movie with Gwyneth Paltrow and an amazing new-to-me, actor singer, Garrett Hedlund. Singing several songs in the movie, his voice is like a newer version of Kris Kristofferson as he sings several lyrical/danceable tunes in the movie.
  • Play –Caught a King Lear performance at Stratford. Colm Feore aces the title role in this tragedy.

Also, I took some time to watch the amazing super moon! Wonderful to see the impact of this golden moonlight on the landscape.

What a wonderful August world! 🙂

Have a great week, All!
