Fading Summer

Signs of fall are starting to appear. The dogwood leaves are changing color, and there’s a difference in the air as the days grow shorter….


Remnants of a lacecap hydrangea

I’m not sure if my fuchsia plant will ever forgive me for putting it on the deck during the hottest July ever….

Farewell to summer?

It’s almost as if this little ballerina is waving goodbye to summer. As for me, I’m ready for cooler nights, apple cider and sweaters. How about you?

Great weekend, everyone…I’m hoping Hurricane Irene is not as bad as forecasters are predicting.

    We had a cool summer until a week ago, now all of a sudden it’s really hot at the same time there are a few dead leaves to be seen already. Two seasons in parallel. The fuchsia looks still very lovely.

    • Yes, Europe seems to be having really strange weather this year. I’m surprised at all the dead leaves here too, but I think it’s because the trees are stressed from all the heat.

    Great capture. I love summer and I am sad it’s passing by.

    • I would like it better if we didn’t have so much heat and humidity, but it beats snow and ice for sure.

      Thank you for all the lovely comments, and welcome to the blog. 🙂

    I ‘heard’ the first sounds of fall at the cottage up here a couple of weeks ago … acorns kerplunking into the lake! And, I arrived home yesterday to the Black-Eyed Susans in glorious bloom!

    Lovely photos. It has started to feel more like fall in Boston as well. I’m loving it.

  5. Great pictures as always. Hurricane Irene hasn’t caused any problems here in Edinburgh yet.
