It has been such a busy week that today I just noticed we are already half way through August, where has the summer gone?

 August is a bittersweet month for me.  I love the summer's bounty in August.  All of the fresh veggies, and the corn!  How I love that delicious, buttery  cob.  We just had some fresh from the farm last night.   It is so nice to eat fresh vegetables every day.

It is also Sunflower and Gladiola time.  Big bright yellow faces and a rainbow of Gladioli splendor.  But it also reminds me that summer is winding down.

The days are still hot enough for picnics but the evenings are getting cooler and sometimes it is nice to sit around a fire.

It is the time of year for the fairs to come to town.  Before you know it the Fall Fair will be here in all of it's Autumn glory.

The August skies are alway filled with fluffy white clouds, there seem to be more this summer.  And the evening sky is ablaze with stars so many you think you could reach up and pluck one out and hold it in your hand.

So I will savour these last days of summer in August.  I will hold on to them as tight as I can and hopefully they will last a little longer.


  1. August does seem to be passing at an alarming rate. I am not ready to let go of summer yet, but already I am adding another layer of clothing. Beautiful pictures.

  2. Lovely pictures. I too love the fresh produce but most of all the cool evenings and mornings. I adore the crispness in the air and how everything just feels lighter.

    Blessings, Viv

  3. It's so true Sue, while the sun is still out and warm, in the shade the cool hand of autumn can be felt. The older I get, the faster the time flies; time to savour the last days of summer and all those delicious garden fresh vegetables and fruits. Deb

  4. Yes, August is going by very fast, too fast if you ask me. I hate to see summer go but I guess we have to go along with the calendar. Such is life.
    Your photos are wonderful.

    Thanks for sharing.
