Lingering summer

Alpine strawberries think they're in the mountains

Looks like I ‘m a bit distracted by the few warm days we’re getting this week, a bit of summer lingering past its due date. While I’m out raking leaves, the alpine  strawberries are fruiting again. Very tart fruits, but fruits nonetheless.

Flowering tobacco

And the flowering tobacco is even more convinced it’s still summer. I have several plants opening up pink and white blossoms. Who knows how long it will last?

Enjoy.
