Sun sets on summer
Equinox sunset just getting started
It's hard to believe summer is over, but my garden will continue to look good for several more weeks, right up until the first hard freeze (usually sometime in mid to late November). So for now, just a few photos of the glorious sunset we had on the last day of summer this year, as photographed from my roof Monday night. We have a view over Rock Creek Park of the National Cathedral, and you can see in the photos the scaffolding for the ongoing repairs to the tower that was damaged by the 5.8 earthquake we had 3 years ago (one spire was knocked off entirely, and 2 more were in danger of falling).
