End of Summer, 2014

End of Summer:

Summer comes early to southside Virginia.  I start mowing usually around the start of March.  For me that's the official start of Summer.  The calendars tell you it's sometime in late June, but don't believe them.  Calendars are created by people who don't mow.

Summer starts when you gas up the lawn mower and start the work of keeping the lawn as short as a buzz cut.

And Summer doesn't end toward the end of September.

It ends when you do the last mow and sit down and have the last post mow beer.

Summer ended today about 10 minutes ago.

And you know summer is too much of a distant memory when you look out over an overgrown (but no less charming) wilderness in the Winter months.
