Default Today's Peeve Of The Day, Wednesday 19th October.

Good morning peevers.

I've woken up to the first ground frost of the Autumn (Fall). It's only a slight one but means the end is nigh for many of the annual plants in the garden that have survived so far.

Though I like the fall very much it's still sad to see the signs of summer disappearing, so for today's peeve;

Seeing the last signs of summer disappear.

Post note; I know that you may live in areas that don't get the seasons quite the way I do here, so I'd be interested in your local take on this peeve.

I'm always happy to see the intense heat of Texas summers subside. But, I love to grow things and hate to see the end of gardening and such. I mowed once this year the drought pretty much killed the lawn.

Seeing the last signs of summer disappear.

So many things that I love about summer. The sun, heat, shorts, flip flops, and cycle riding. I could go on and on but I will spare all of you.

That's a good peeve, Jezer. Love your flowers I saw snow this morning...I am always sad to see summer disappear. The colours of fall are beautiful but the dreary, damp weather is not.

I'll add to your list Larksong, the beach, the walks, feeling warmth from the sun, sandals, summer clothing, outdoor restaurants, concerts....gone for at least 7.5-8.5 months in this part of the world.

When the intense heated summer ends here is when our planting and garden season starts and lasts for the next 9 months.
