Summer's end / Diwedd yr haf

It's been a mild summer here in Denver; parts of August have felt more like September. The tomatoes are in full spate, but for how much longer? Usually we have the first killing frost before the end of September, and September starts tomorrow. (Picture: view toward Golden and Boulder from the office window last Wednesday.)
Mae hi'n wedi bod haf mwyn yma yn Denver; mae rhannau'r Mis Awst wedi teimlo fel Mis Medi. Mae'r tomatoes yn dod yn gyflym, ond am faint o amser? Yn arferol, mi gawn ni rhew galed cyn bo diwedd Mis Medi, a mae'r Mis Medi yn dechrau yfory. (Llun: golygfa tuag at Golden a Boulder o'r ffenestr y swyddfa Dydd Mercher diwedda.)

New camera

I'm currently doing some testing with a new camera - more blogging presently. This variety is Isis Candy, one of the tomato plants I started from seed back in March.

Back home again

I'm back from Pennsic War. Had a great time, and I'll blog about it more soon. Also I'll be posting class notes and references for the two classes I taught there: The Early Welsh Bards and Early Welsh Poetry (550-1350 CE). In the meantime, it's good to be home.
