The last day of summer awoke to frost on the lower fields and a perfectly blue sky. After the morning's cool surprise brought out a jacket and scarf, the sun soon warmed my surroundings to a delightful 25 Celsius. It was the perfect day to wander through the Farmer's Market to choose fresh corn, lettuce, apples and zucchini. My treat from a market vendor were little Middle Eastern spinach and onion pastries that will be delicious with my new pear chutney.
"There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart."
"This was one of those perfect New England (or Okanagan) days in late summer where the spirit of autumn takes a first stealing flight, like a spy, through the ripening country-side, and, with feigned sympathy for those who droop with August heat, puts her cool cloak of bracing air about leaf and flower and human shoulders."~Sarah OrneJewett
