Wa. I hate putting away the patio things until spring. Each item — planters, little metal frogs, concrete reading elf, chair cushions, wall hangings — has added to the pleasure of warm spring and summer nights spent out under the stars. I refused to cover the tables yet. We might still get lucky enough to bundle up and sit out by the lake again. I also left four pots with geraniums that still have a few blooms, the result of our covering them each night and pulling the sheet away each morning.
The day ended well though. We went to the symphony concert honoring veterans and stopped off for a late bite and nightcap on the way home.
