Still recovering from a six-day hospital visit for pneumonia and chronic bronchitis that went off the rails. Walked across the street to ask permission to photograph the bright red flowers blooming along a wall of the neighbor’s house.

People have various ways was to mark the end of summer. I know there’s the official solstice, but I will call today the end because the loons are long gone and our high temperature fell from the 70s to 49 degrees. It’s raining and sure doesn’t invite one outdoors.
