Late summer’s cosmos

Almost as if a switch had been thrown, our weather changed from excessive summer heat to below normal temperatures.  With lows in the 50’s at night and highs only in the 60’s and 70’s we had a real hint of the end of summer.  Life has sped up knowing that fall can’t be far away, and although we may have hot temperatures again during the daytime, the nights will cool off considerably as our hours of daylight shorten.  Knowing this made these beautiful pink cosmos seem even more special when I found them in a wonderful garden today.  Their lightness was a reminder of the carefree feeling of summer –  enjoy it now because it’s fleeting, soon to be followed by the deeper smells and rich colors of autumn.
