Just what season is it anyway?

The calendar says it's fall;  the oak trees confirm that as they've just begun to drop acorns.  Our pear tree has fully bloomed again thinking it has a second spring.  Our crape myrtle trees are making another run for summer.  And our lawnmowers thought it was winter as they hadn't been used for the entire month of August.  (They were rudely awakened by me from the beginnings of their long winter's nap to return to active service after hurricane rains this month.)

Oh well.  As the saying goes, "If you don't like the weather in Texas, wait a minute."

Beautiful green grass. Nothing is growing in VA. We have had little rain in two months. As much as I hate mowing I wish my yard needed it.

Here in Texas we get a huge brownout in August. Then sometime in Sept if the temps ease off and we get some rain, we'll have a green up and mow again until October or even November. So we do get a mini 2nd spring. :)

Hope you get some rain soon! I don't like to see the grasses and trees suffer...
