In our End of Summer {Flower} Gardens . . .




Yes they're weeds but I still think they're pretty.  : )






  






Our beautiful flower gardens are starting to show their age but are still pretty nonetheless.  We sat outside in our backyard last night for dinner with friends that we've shared so many of our summer nights with.  There was a hint of fall in the air.  Just a hint.  The girls got out of the pool because they were "freezing solid" and sat, wrapped in their towels, in the last bit of the day's sun.  I even turned the little fans off that we've had blowing under the gazebo all summer.  My son Brendan talked about how much he was looking forward to "hunkering down" with board games inside this winter and eating homemade soup.  My nephew leaves for college tomorrow for his first time, another end-of-summer sign, so Megan and I are making a trip to the store today to pick up a bunch of his favorite snacks for his dorm room.  We're also keeping an eye on three potentially big storms that could impact the northeast by the end of next week.  Lots going on around here!!!  For now, I'll sip my coffee and know that all is at it should be.  : )


Wishing you a beautiful and peaceful Tuesday ~ Wendy

Beautiful garden despite the summer coming to an end. The evenings here are starting to chill and get darker earlier a sure sign that Autumn is on the way. Take care.

Your garden looks heaps better than mine! I hope you aren't dealing with weather that is too bad. We have had some crazy storms around here ourselves!

Your gardens look gorgeous still! The drought was so bad up here that we didn't even plant our vegetable garden this year and our hydrangeas didn't bloom at all. So sad!

It's crazy to think it's the end of summer already! It sure went by fast (which honestly is OK with me since I am much more a lover of autumn if truth be known)! :)
