If the first week in August is unusually warm, the winter will be white and long.

It is August, and it is hot.  Weather Lore, otherwise known as Bauernregeln, knows that,

 If the first week in August is unusually warm, the winter will be white and long.

Got to wonder about global warming vs. global cooling and how the tone in the media will change if indeed the coming winter will be long and white.  But I guess we can look forward to much snow and fewer bugs next year!

Here are a few pictures we took this morning when the sun was just over the treetops.

Spearmint blossoms.  Without bee…

… and with bee:

And here we have a predator and its prey, focusing first the former, and then the latter:

And here is another pretty little wildflower.  It’s about the size of a bean blossoms, but I am not sure what it is exactly:

As for the featured flower that is unfolding now, it is probably a member of the Aster family, but that’s about my best guess at this point.

Enjoy your summer days; in two months, we might have the first frost already!
