Summer's Ghosts

The spiritual end of summer is Labor Day, but the ghosts of warm weather, wildflowers and garden harvests are still sneaking around. The rivers, ponds and lakes haven't even gotten super cold yet. Well, they aren't any colder than they normally are. Some of the shady tributaries still feel like snowmelt in the middle of August.

Our event calendar hasn't disappeared either, we've got a full schedule straight into fall and beyond. In fact, some of our favorite non-winter celebrations are just around the corner, like the New England Craft Beer Open golf tourney, Community Day and Oktoberfest.

Preparations for winter are in high gear, even while we get ready for fall foliage. Autumn's apparitions are showing more of themselves daily and with just the right amounts of rain and sun this summer, the hues are likely to be bright.

View to a thrill. 

We're in between the specters of summer and the phantasms of fall, but there is no reason to be afraid, these are friendly ghosts. They are quick to dissipate this time of year though, grasp the wisps before they're gone.
