Pickaway To Garden - October 2014
Change By Paul J. Hang An old philosopher once said that the only permanent thing is change. Actually the old philosopher was Heraclitus and I don’t know how old he was when he said that.

Pickaway To Garden, By Paul Hang
Over The Hill August is a month that brings me a sense of being over the hill. By the end of the first week we will be at mid-summer, half way between the summer solstice and the autumnal equinox. By mid-month summer is waning. Days are getting shorter but not yet at an alarming rate. I get a feeling that we are sliding down hill, however slowly, towards September, October and the falling leaves of autumn. Although this is true, this time of year also seems like true summer. Warm days, misty mornings, dog days, meteors, tomatoes, pokeweed, milkweed, goldenrod, sumac, crabapples, watermelon and sweet corn all confirm that the season is at its height. I left out ragweed. It reminds millions of us that August has arrived. Ragweed is the culprit causing hay fever allergies, not goldenrod and not hay.
