The blooms on the cannas are about gone, but those enormous, magnificently colored leaves remain a while longer. When the sunlight shines through them, they turn an incredible blend of yellow, chartruse, blue, wine .... I'm not crazy about the flowers, but the leaves ... well, that's another story!
A busy day yesterday. The demo at Jerry's was fun -- it's always interesting to see how other artists approach their work.
We finally picked our muscadine grapes and rendered those into jelly -- really good --- different than store-bought grape - the muscadine is almost sweet/tart in flavor - and the color reminds me of burgandy wine. My jelly closet is bulging and we haven't gotten to the persimmons yet this year! LOL
Temps have risen a bit again, sitting in the high 80s. Humidity is back, too. I suppose summer isn't quite done with us. Still, the changing light and the yellow leaves forewarn us that there isn't much left to the summer season. Hopefully, we'll finish the chores and get out in it a bit today ...Hope you do too!
