I'm really really trying to be okay with the weather turning cold and the garden dying back. But you see, the weather's turning cold and the garden is dying back. And that just is the saddest thing! I LOVE the garden! I had such a great summer napping and playing under the green bean trellis, hunting in the butterfly garden, drinking out of the bird bath, and napping in the sun. It's hard to let all that go and admit that it's fall!
I've been very vocal to Mom about my displeasure about all this. We go outside, I ask for a green bean. She scours the fading leaves for a tender one, picks it for me. She holds it out, I sniff it and rub my face on it. Then I try and bite or lick it and I just make a face at her: Yuck! Mom! Then I walk over to the squash plant area. I used to find nice big leaves and tunnel around under them like I was stalking/hunting something. Now I just show her that all the leaves have died back or have mildew. I can't hide under dried vines. And the squashes are all gone! Why'd she take those inside?!
So then I take her over to the place she throws the rotty tomatoes and really tell her how gross they are! Mostly after that I just go back to the bird bath, take a sip and try to nap in the sunny grass and dirt patches... Dream of summer! Pout pout. How can it be gone already!?! Whaaaa!

Colder weather? We still have 90s here, MOL!
