Summer is almost over, and this summer we enjoyed our iced tea out on the gazebo. We bought the Ball jar dispenser earlier this summer from Victorian Trading Company. It holds a gallon of lemonade or iced tea, and since the lid fits nice and tight, it's great for keeping our cold beverages safely in the fridge.
Next weekend is Labor Day already. As much as I love my garden, it's good to have a winter break from it all. Mowing grass and pulling weeds will give way to shoveling snow. Winters here can be brutal. So when the leaves start to fall, we'll gather them up to use as a bed of protective mulch for the flowers.
But for now, I'll enjoy my iced tea while I can!
