Summer...how I love thee!



What a great summer we've had. Busy and fun! It's hard to believe it's over.

We've (ok...my DH) worked hard in our yard this summer. Putting in new beds, a retaining wall, and a privacy fence. But I added the flowers! I planted zinnias for the first time in our little berm in the front yard. I was amazed at how well they did. They certainly are hardy things and grow so very tall. (Note to self: plant twice as many next year!) I also planted daisies, vinca, impatiens, the standard petunias, and knockout roses. Wow, have we enjoyed them. But as beautiful as they've been all summer, they are now starting to fade. There is a definite crispness to the evening air now, and fall is gently, but steadily strolling in. So I am breathing in the sight and scents of my flowers while I can, because they will be gone too soon. Good-bye, summer ... Welcome, fall!

Whoo Who!! I am so glad you decided to giving blogging a try. I love it. I print the pages and use them as my journal. (they print the pics to so I have the writing and the pics to go with them) You don't get that with a regular journal!! Pretty flowers by the way.

Hi Sue! Hope you don't mind that I found your blog! (I followed a link on my sitemeter.) It's beautiful!!! I see that we share a few favorites! ; )

Great photos of your flowers. So glad you shared them. I'm with you about the zinnias. We planted them for the first time last year and loved them.
