August Coming to an End

  We are back to sunny days and cool nights but I think things are about to become more Autumnal as there is a strong cold wind this afternoon. Maybe a vestige of Hurricane Dorian?

I think I have shown this gorgeous hibiscus already but it seems to have taken on a new lease of life. There are still lots of buds on it, not that I have been looking after it particularly well.

   I haven't been in the pool for at least a week so I think this summer's swimming is well and truly over. I won't heat it once the nights start to be consistently cool. The pool guys will be closing it up in three weeks and I have overspent my pool budget by several hundred dollars so have discontinued the weekly chemical check. I will stick a puck in from time to time to stop it turning green and will keep the pump running until then.

   Tennis this morning - still a good crowd and a bit of a wait for a court. The smart ones arrive early and get a couple of games before the rest show up, then it peters off as lunch hour approaches. Still some exciting matches from the US Open on TV and still two Canadians in the mix. That's my weekend all organized!
