As if on cue, the temperature today in New York on this last day of August 2009, is 23'C/73'F. The air conditioners have been turned off.
Is summer over? Fine by me. Produce at the markets will continue to be abundant for a long time to come. Roses will still bloom. We will still snip chives and basil...
Here are some pictures from the last 30 days on the terrace.

Tomorrow is September. Bring on some of the best months...This year is drawing down.
We have postponed our move. For various reasons it was too much too soon, and I feel like I have some breathing room. We will find more storage in the tiny space for my tall husband. We will enjoy the terrace some more. We will not worry.
We will eat more figs.
