Fruity Facts

How about a little Fruity Fact Tribute to the great month of AUGUST!
*Lemon Meringue Pie Day on August 15th
*August 16, 1977, Elvis Presley died.
*August is the busiest time for tourism, as it falls in the main school holiday of the year, the summer holidays, which lasts for six weeks for state run schools. 
*August is the height of the summer time in the temperature zone of the Northern Hemisphere. The longest day of the year is passed, but the hot days remain. In northern regions and mountains, cool nights and early frosts lets one know that the summer is coming to an end. In the southern hemisphere, August means the winter will soon be over. 
*The birds are already planning to fly south for the winter. The insects are more noisier and numerous than in any other month. This is perhaps the busiest month for businesses, since most people take their vacations in August. 
*The poppy and gladiolus are the flowers for the month of August. 
Isn't August the coolest!!
