And for those who found the previous post too cranky, here's something less so. We're getting to the end of flowers in the community gardens now, when all that's in bloom are various late-season yellow daisies, asters, and the last of the annuals. These cosmos and anemones are still looking good, but we've been close to a frost this week, although it's still a bit early for that. This morning was downright nippy as I rode my bike to the studio, but it warmed up mid-day. Montrealers will keep the summer going as long as they possibly can, though I've already seen some recent immigrants bundled in parkas, and I feel for them!
