Fireweed is out.

Gladiolas falling over.

Frost on cars.

It’s 38 Degrees.

Sunset is 9:20.

Seagulls packing up.

Putting sandals away.

Getting socks out.

The last chocolate.

Missed the birth.




Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
