August 2013 Photo A Day Project - Week Three

Another week of summer has come and gone, and we've already had a few blissfully cooler nights. Along with them, though, has come the beginning of the changing leaf colours. Granted, it's only an occasional glimpse of red or gold on the odd tree, but the glorious painting-to-come is starting. 

Autumn is my favourite season, but it's always a little bittersweet when it arrives; soon we'll have to budget extra time to scrape snow and ice off of cars and climb in and out of three additional layers of clothes. We're on the downhill slope that leads to snow plows and missing bike rides and long walks in our shirtsleeves.

Now, though, the sun continues to shine hot, and we have, at last, harvested three lovely, red tomatoes from our "early" plant. It's been an odd, but beautiful season. Last week was perhaps one of the best weather-wise of the summer: mostly just right, hovering around 80F/27C mid-day, not too humid, and to our thunder-phobic pup, Copper's, delight, no storms! 

Loads of fun things filled the week, and here are daily glimpses of a few of those delights....
