Just a Late Summer Day.....Until

I took these pictures of flowers in our back yard this morning and had planned to write about the waning days of summer. 

The last full bloom on the butterfly bush....


A bee gathering pollen in a yellow squash bloom...

Fading flowers...

And then while I was making dinner....this happened to John's car.....


The car ended up being just slightly damaged.

Unfortunately, our tremendous oak tree at the back of our house is stressed. 
We have been losing branches all summer after a rather severe storm with straight line winds hit us early in the spring.   This tree shades us from the relentless afternnon sun. It's beautiful, and I fear it may be fatally damaged.

I'll be calling an arborist tomorrow.
