Good bye and good riddance Summer of '12.
Wherever you came from, please don't come back. You were a season of stealth. Day by day, hour by hour you robbed my garden of all that is good about summer with your record high temperatures and your stinginess with rain.
But you are in the past, Summer of '12, and Fall of '12 already seems one hundred times better, though it is only been here for a few hours officially. The temperatures are cooler and the rain has returned. The flowers are bright and vibrant in shades of pink, purple, and yellow.
Yoo hoo, we can all go out again. Summer is gone. Fall is here and there's lots of gardening we can still do and lots of gardens we can still enjoy.
Hello Fall of '12!
