Late Summer flowers, early Autumn days. . . . . . . .

No real signs of Autumn here in the southeast yet. . . . . still very hot and dry.
Autumn greetings to you my friends - my favorite season of the year, even though
 I'll be a year older in colorful October. . . . . . . and hopefully much wiser!

Things are crazy around the cottage as we finish up the first week of the 
the big exterior project.  Lovely to have a quieter day with no hammering, 
drilling, sawing. . . . . . and handsome, young, muscular men (sorry Bob!)
 playing country music and guzzling an unbelievable number of bottles of
 chilled water from my refrigerator.
 It has been 90F each day so can't say I blame them. 
It will all start all over again come Monday morning of course!


  1. Beautiful collage! Can't wait to see what's happening at your place!

  2. I can't remember when we last had that sort of heat! Your project sounds very exciting, look forward to hearing more.

  3. Soon that work project will be all over and you will enjoy your fall!

  4. It's been incredibly hot and dry here, too! We've been around 95 for the past 5 or 6 days, I've lost count now. No end in sight until Wed. But we desperately need rain. There's barely a color change and the grass is brown and crisp. Can't wait to see what you're doing with the exterior of your house!

  5. The work will be worth it when done - but oh my, going through it is a trial. Your photos are fabulous - you always have such a wonderful perspective in your photos. Happy week ahead my friend. We are well into autumn - leaves turning - leaves fluttering down - temperatures cooling and the beginnings of the rainy season - with a few days of sun now and then.

  6. Wonderful pictures! Stay cool, enjoy the view, and keep serving ice cold water. Smiling!

  7. Here in Normandy Autumn has well and truly arrived and with it the start of the hunting season, which is not so good.
    Hope your renov project continues to move on quickly and I look forward to seeing the finished project.

  8. Lovely late flowers. Hope you get some Fall color soon. There wasn't much at my Mom's in Suffolk, Va this past week yet, either.

  9. Hee, free cold bottles for some muscles. not bad, right?


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
