Bye, Bye, August

August is officially over…


September to me says “FALL”

                                even if 3/4’s of it is really technically still Summer.

But the world around me is already tucking away the green of summer and donning their Autumn colors,


The mums have arrived at the Garden Center…

and my garden is fading fast.

I see a truck load of mum’s in my future,

maybe, just maybe that will keep my flower addiction assuaged.

I can tuck them in some pots and decorate the porch of my  Studio (aka Art Cottage)


I can plant a few in my Buckets for an Autumn touch,

maybe snuggle a few pumpkins up against them.

I can get a brazier or raised fire pit to add to my new Garden room, to enjoy sitting by

and maybe roasting a marshmallow or two.

That should warm me on chilly Autumn nights.

And I always have my homemade, oh so delicious Pesto to bring back sweet memories of summer,

each and every time I eat it.

(actually had some tonight, and it is to DIE for!)

I need to make another batch, I don’t think the 3 gallons I have in the  freezer will be enough to last all winter. Smile

So that being said I guess if I throw myself into some Fall decorating I will talk myself into letting go of Summer.

Around these parts there is a hint that Winter may be a dilly.


Next time I will share all the signs I did for August. 

Hmm, I think I should be working on some Fall themed signs…

any suggestions??


Good bye August…

  1. Love the back yard and that pesto looks absolutely delicious!

    Happy day to you!

    1. This batch of Pesto has been absolutely the BEST! I think it is the switch from Parmesan to Asiago cheese plus I roasted the pine nuts. My basil is ready for picking again so another batch is on the way! 😀

    1. Welcome…and I haven’t really figured it out yet either. We are to enjoy glorious summer type weather all this week and I intend to revel in it! 😀 The smoke is much lighter so being outdoors is much more doable. I am going to play in the garden all I can. Even if it is getting it ready for winter.
