the last bits of summer...

Summer always seems like it's red to me...
a big red sun that burns away 
to rusty fall leaves and golden shadows...


Red, wonderful red.
Apples and barns and skies before storms.
It's cheery red toenails peeking from sandals and lips all dressed up. 
It's every pair of shoes I've ever loved.
Ahhh, yummy red, brave red, intense red...
It's pink's bossy big sister and I love her for it!


And I am sad to see that color go... 
The last bits from the local farm stands are the last of my summer reds...
cherry tomatoes and berries...
and they'll soon be gone from the farm stands all together.

Here they are gathered in my fave berry bowls...
 
Red seems to taste as good as it looks....

xxoo Jen
