Summer's Last Fling

The annuals have tasted Jack's Frost bitter bite and are limp in their pots so off to the compost they go.

The sunny yellow swing has faded to pale gold from the summer sun's fierce rays and sits filled with curled brown leaves.

But the little girl and her cat have decided to play in the fallen leaves and the sun for a few more days.

So as we bid goodbye to summer I thought I would send each of you the last roses of summer. Please pick your favorite one and take it home. Tuck it in a vase and dream of summer's to come.

May the Lord bless each of you who come this way. Have a happy day.

Hello, Stella,
I think you and I were thinking along the same lines in our recent posts as I too wrote of my garden taking a final bow before winter comes. I so enjoyed seeing your pretty garden. I think I will choose that lovely yellow rose to take home and then dream of a sweet springtime to come. Blessings to you my friend. Vicki

Hi Stella, I'm glad you came by. I enjoyed reading several of your posts, especially the one about picking apples. It looked like the grandkids all had a great time.
Love your style,

Hi Stella, I haven't been around much either. My little Dusty has a cyst removed from his tail and it took 4 weeks for him to recover. All that time he needed undivided attention. So I didn't have time for much else. I'm back and ready to start visiting again. I loved the roses, summer wasn't very good this year, not nearly long enough. Rainy and cold most of the time. Have a great weekend.

Hi Stella,
Love your roses. The answer to the music is that it is just put in with push pins and scotch tape right now. But I yhink wall paper paste would be good or you could even use the starch method. I would opt for wall paper paste though. PS I was born and raised in KC!
Thanks for stopping by to visit.
