Those of us who have more yesterdays than tomorrows usually don’t like to see time pass swiftly, but I’m glad to see this summer of record-setting heat and little rain come to an end. Come on fall!
Although all of our friends know that I dislike summer with its heat and humidity – and much prefer the cold and snow of winter – summer is not without its pleasures. One of summer’s most enjoyable aspects are the various yellows that abound.
It seems that as summer progresses the yellows get brighter and more common, so that now at the end of summer the season is saying “Good-bye” in a riot of yellow –
And some timber rattlesnakes –
In this area the most abundant of summer’s yellow fauna are the tiger swallowtail butterflies –
Even late summer’s fungi show yellows –
