See You In September

The year is getting on and the days are growing short while Summer rushes headlong into Fall.  While we stand on this pinpoint in time when flowers still bloom and leaves still clothe the trees, I will be out of doors.


Among my flowers, still vibrant after the sun has set.


Watching my Cosmo's catch a silent wind.


While waiting for the colors to fade and the petals to drop, I'll be out of doors watching life live itself out as it does every year in my gardens.

I'll be painting, building scenery and spending time with family too. So, I'll see you in September before the leaves first Fall and Winter comes again.

    3. I'm a real nightowl and go for walks at about 4:00 a.m. It feels like I own the world because no one is out except me, the stars and the moon.

    1. Thank you Michael. It's just too nice out right now to spend the day on the computer. Life is too short and I'm getting older by the minute!

  5. All of these photos are awesome Anne, I'm with you in taking some time off to enjoy Summer, that's exactly what you should be doing, Winter's coming soon and you and I both know it sucks so here's hoping we can make the most of the pre-Winter times ahead for a while.

    1. You and I don't cope well with Winter do we. I'm dreading the depression that comes with those short days and the cold. The weather here is perfect right now and time is short, so I'm getting it while the getting is good.

  6. Those flowers are beautiful. Sadly whenever I try to grow something it just dies on me :( I'm looking forward to seeing you back in September, and I hope you enjoy the time with the family, and of course, with the flowers. Which won't talk back like a family might.

    1. I do talk to my flowers and imagine I can hear them singing when it rains. They are so beautiful and if I want more like them in the Spring, I have to start getting seeds down now!

  7. Enjoy the last of the great colours, your flowers look great. Our kids just have less than two weeks of holiday left then it's back to school for them which is fine by all of us (they love school the freeks)

    1. It's so perfectly cool here right now and there's still loads of color out there. I've also found a good use for dried petals and leaves for my terrain. This is the first year I don't have children going back to school. It's a bit sad going through the stores and not picking up notebooks and such. Enjoy those children while they're still young Ian!

    1. I remember last year in the dead of Winter reading about you Aussies and your summer heat! Oh how you guys complained and I was complaining about the cold. It was a regular gripe-fest. Enjoy your Summer when it arrives kbud!

  9. My favorite time of year...where the mornings are cool and the days are warm and mild. All the plants and grass are so lush and green! I don't blame you one bit for taking leave.

    We look forward to your return...and the continued story you teased us with last week!

    1. I've almost got your figure finished Dan. I freehanded some snappy plaid on his waistcoat and now I've just got face and hair to go. He'll look just like you when he's done!!

    2. Awesome! I can't wait to see it!

  10. Glad you're taking the time to enjoy the waning dog days of Summer. Smell the roses...unless you have allergies, in which case, just take pretty pictures of them. See you then.

  14. Enjoy your time but don't lose your grip on the rhyme or the cat will come and fling pringle cans filled with stuff from his bum. At least your gardens will still grow. Have fun enjoying life at your show.

    1. You're poo will be used to prepare the beds for next years gardens. I don't know what it is you eat, but I had a poppy that grew to be 5 foot tall this year. Radioactive poo from Canada!

    2. Damn the cat should market that stuff, I'd be rich in no time.

    1. In Winter I'll be around a lot more. Remember last winter, we had such fun goofing on blogger. Before the year is out, we'll have to have another Challenge.

      That's my Cosmos and they photograph so beautifully, I plant tons of them every year.

  25. Enjoy your summer relax time! That last red flower is an especially cool picture- love the ring of 'little yellow flowers' within the big red flower. Interesting about the goat- I guess there was a reason I was intantly drawn to the goat! ;)

  26. Enjoy your summer-end!
    September and sometimes October (when it's not too cold) are the months I prefer !
    summer is too hot for me! (Must go to Ireland a next year!) and the very hot August is catastrophic for my garden !
    Good bye Anne, it will be a pleasure when you will return in the blog-World!

  28. Beautiful pics Anne. As you guys slide into winter, were looking forward to summer, not too far away now :-) Break out the shorts and BBQ, woo hoo!

    ReplyDelete
  29. We will most definitely see you then! Enjoy your time off of the blogosphere. Also, maybe it's just because my housing development forces its own gardening upon us, but we aren't allowed to have anything nearly as pretty as those flowers. We just have gray roses that the underpaid gardeners trim with weedwackers. All of them are headless and dead, and it's kind of a bummer.

  30. I'm with you, Anne!! Sometimes real life needs to take priority. Enjoy your garden, art, and your family. xo
