The weeks are going by so quickly.
It seems I just posted and here another one has come and gone.
In one way, summer is just flying by
and in another it is dragging its feet.
Time is so fleeting
that I feel it should never be wished away
but, the truth is, I am yearning for fall.
I am looking forward to
my favorite color pallet
and a cooler bite in the air.
Even though the color blue seems to be the one constant in my paint box,
I admit that I feel the most satisfaction
when I am surrounded by
the colors of autumn,
the rusts and the rich jewel tones.
Since I didn't get my real life zinnias planted in the garden this year,
I ordered this pretty wreath from Joann's, along with some individual stems.
I thought it would make for a
pretty summer decoration.
However, since it has been so hot,
the thought of all
that brilliance and brightness around me
was too much to contemplate
so now it seems just right, with the addition of sunflowers,
for later summer arrangements...
...and that should give just enough time
for dried sunflowers to be ready
for some fall fun.
Thanks to you all
for your kind and good wishes for
Jake's and Jacenda's engagement.
We are all so excited
and are looking forward to the future.
Jacenda is in the process of interviewing for a few job opportunities
and when her decision has been made,
we will know where
their continuing journey will take them.
The sun is getting the better of the ferns,
but the limelight hydrangeas
are almost in full bloom.
They give off the slightest, sweetest scent for our late night porch sittings.
"We must be very popular
As we have a lot of fans!"
And the heat goes on!
Have a great week.
