Summer Fading

The end of summer is in the air   DSC02728


A sense of change is everywhere   DSC02081


The land remains green   DSC02746

And blooms are yet seen   DSC02859

But the gourds are fading over there.  DSC02692







But it’s okay.  Mary and I remain eternally optimistic and hopeful.  Summer will return again next year.  And before it does, we have the pleasure of Fall, Winter and Spring.DSC02980

    1. Me too. I love the constant flow of the seasons. Last winter we did seem to be stuck for a while, but hey. Look where we were in a few short months. 🙂

    1. Yeah, it’s fading. Not gone, but starting to yield. Now I get to see the sunsets over your lake as the sun sets further south. 🙂

    1. Bittersweet melancholy. Yep. Summer yields. The other seasons are great, but Wow! This summer sure has been nice. 🙂

    1. Yep, the seasons shift on. I saw that silver maple on your post. Our trees are still green but not quite the dark green of a few weeks ago and I can feel less heat from the sun of an evening. Our burning bush has already declared summer over, turning redder by the day. 🙂

    1. Oh yes, I hope I am full of the vibrant life and colors of summer. I’d like to think so, anyway. So glad to hear you are too. 🙂 But, that said, I do not dread winter. I love summer but I also love the opposite season. There is something about the white, frozen landscape of winter that really works for me. I just hope that I do not carry that around inside me. Only to enjoy on the outside. I’ll keep summer on the inside. 🙂

    1. Thanks Eily. If September is your favorite month, me thinks you are in fine shape now. Enjoy the fresh, cool air! 🙂

  1. Oh, my!!! What beauty around you to photograph. Thank you for visiting my blog and liking my post.

    1. Thanks. I do savor nature’s gifts, so to speak. I particularly savor the glorious cold of winter. So, while I pine for the passing of summer, I look forward to a frozen winter. Good thing, because I have a feeling that it is going to be another whopper. 🙂

      1. You are welcome to winter. I will curl up like a cat in my sunroom and watch the clouds go by and drink a cup of herbal tea and pine (just a bit) for spring!

  2. I agree with Marla aka Crazy Mom, I love my seasons but it sure would be nice if the winter ‘pause’ wasn’t so long.

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful garden. You have planted many of my favorite… 🙂 And yes, a sad face here with summer closing. Oh how I love my summers!

    1. Thanks for the reblog. It is my pleasure to share our gardens. Alas, summer is coming to and end. I’m hoping for a beautiful fall, but suspect we will be in for some cold weather soon. I like cold weather, but, as you say “Oh how I love my summers!” 🙂

      1. Same here.. the mornings are getting quite a bit cooler… snow is on the rise and has already hit the higher elevations here.

    1. Great. I’m looking forward to it. Now, I might be a little jealous of your amazing summer dinners, but I sure look forward to seeing all the vibrant growth and colors. 🙂

  4. It is fading. I feel like I’m on the cusp of starting fall garden cleanup but don’t want to hurry some things out the door, so to speak. Combatting my tendency to wait too long.

    1. Yep. It’s tough. When to declare that glorious, growing, vibrant plant to be just another member of the fine community of compost? But we gotta do what we gotta do! 🙂
