Sunday Salon: The End of Summer

Still reading:

My Coney Island Baby by Jonathan Cape, published January 17th, 2019 

The Translation of Love by Lynne Kutsukake, a Canadian author, April 2016, Doubleday

There are no new books on my desk but quite a few ebooks on my Kindle, thanks to Kindle Unlimited and First Reads. 

Other stuff:

It's very cool tonight but warm tomorrow. We have had a roller coaster of temperatures this summer and fall and never know what to expect from week to week. I have hibiscus blooming in the yard for the second time this year, while all the other flowers have died off, including the sedum above. 

I have been enjoying ice cream mochi from Whole Foods. Sweet rice dough made into balls filled with ice cream. I love the vanilla and the green tea ice cream fillings.

I had no idea that hibiscus can bloom twice in one year. I'm learning about native plants now, and I'm hoping to learn to be a Master Gardener after Christmas.

We are all waiting for our first cool front that is supposed to arrive on Tuesday. We've had a hot summer, and we will be happy to see some cooler weather. It sounds like you have been up and down. Odd, isn't it?

I'm very interested in hearing more about Coney Island Baby. I hope it is going well for you.

Have a great week!

Gorgeous flowers on your post. That ice cream sounds wonderful, and so does My Coney Island Baby.

Enjoy your books and your week.

It’s Spring here so we have flowers blooming everywhere, with no help from me though. We have a frangipani tree by the side fence, a prolific Hardenbergia vine all over the front verandah, and a huge jacaranda tree in the back yard.

Wishing you a great reading week

Lovely flower photo! I buy mochi ice cream sometimes, mostly from Trader Joe's. Have a great week ahead, Harvee!

The picture is still pretty. I have a few things still blooming - not sure what their names are - but I'm sure this week will finish them off.
I've never had mochi before, it sounds delicious!
