Here in Southern NewEngland the summer has been rainy, damp and humid - not typical, but perhaps not altogether unheard of. The dampness has caused blight - both for gardeners earlier in the season, affecting tomatoes and other crops - and now for leaf peepers, instead of vibrant reds, yellows and oranges, the leaf blight is causing browning and premature dropping of leaves.
On the brighter side, the Montauk Daisies are in bloom and they seem to have attracted some honey bees. They are the first (presumably feral) honey bees I have seen in many years. If so, this is quite an event, as feral honey bees in this area have been decimated by mites and pollution.
