A Flourishing Finish

Enjoying the

 grand finale

of summer gardens

find Summer's end in all it's glory
at a
farmer's market

Why try to explain miracles to your kids when you can just have them plant a garden.

Summer's sweetness today. The first picture is adorable, well they are all adorable. I did not know Robert's Brault quote yet, happy happy to knowing it from now on. I really enjoy all my visits in your sweetest little corner, dear Maria.

After my first morning cup of coffee of the week, I'm jumping in the car for some grocery shopping and I'l catch a bag of candy chalk! xoxoxoxoxo Hope your September week will be a lovely one. xoxoxo

Wow...your chair plant is so huge and so pretty! We still have a lot of things blooming here, usually things are dying off by now.

I wish we had a farmer's market...I would go every week.

My dad leaves tomorrow to drive (eek) home for 2 weeks, so I'll be living with my daddy for a while again too. I can't wait for him to get here.

We are enjoying every last bit of Summer's finale! SO glad to see that you are too!

We are having cooler weather, but still a few weeks away from leaves changing.

My mom has been busy with her garden, not small but huge, now she is canning and putting corn in the freezer, making jams, salsa, etc. We all get to enjoy that during the winter.

Hope you are doing well Maria!!
