Summer's Farewell

Since it is already nearing the end of August and stores are promoting school supplies, I kept thinking it can't be...it just can't be the end of Summer.  The temps certainly are still very Summer-like...hot and humid...and with tropical storm Henri heading up the East Coast and due to arrive Sunday, it certainly still feels like Summer.  Quite honestly I'm still in Summer mode.  Heck I haven't even gone to the beach yet!  Writing this while in front of TV, a commercial just said, "With Summer soon coming to an end, blah, blah, blah" so I guess it must be true.

All the marigold seed I planted in the Spring has produced bundles and bundles of color tucked here and there around the yard which certainly is refreshing with their Fall-like colors.


Even when I went out the other evening, I spotted the geese taking their evening paddle a little earlier than they had been all Summer.  The sun is setting earlier and it isn't as light when I head out at 5 am either.  So, yep, according to Mother Nature, I guess it's time.

seeing, saying, sharing...

Summer's Farewell

The marigolds sure come in beautiful colors! I think we all feel like we haven't done all the fun things of summer. But we'll be happy when the temps come down and we can get out more. Love your beautiful photos! Happy weekend!

That butterfly and those flowers sure are pretty. We sure won't miss the Summer heat, it's been brutal.

Sadly, you are right! Your flowers are still beautiful though. And there is still a bit left to enjoy. All next week we are having a heat wave! I guess it's summer's last shout.

Hello,

Your marigolds are so pretty, love the shot with the geese. Pretty Monarch, I was happy to find a few of them in my yard. Our schools here start after Labor Day, two weeks away. The days are getting shorter too, the weather still feels hot and humid. I hope you are safe from the storm. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a great day and a happy new week! PS, thank you for leaving me a comment.

Good morning, Lovely photos-it's still summer here too-promising to be very very hot and humid week coming up. We seem to always get an extreme hot summer when the winter before is rougher than usual. I love marigolds-hope to plant some next year-they make a pretty natural dye too Happy Sunday

It may be nearing the end of summer, but I never think Autumn is here until the leaves start turning color and the temperatures start cooling. For here, that hasn't even begin to start. Love your photos.

This summer sure is flying by. It's hard to believe it's almost over
