~summer glides away



When summer gathers up her robes of glory,
And, like a dream, glides away.
~ Sarah Helen Whitman

Enjoying the cooler temperatures,
thoughts of warmth from the fire,
soup simmering on the stove
and the glorious colors of fall.
~~~
I'm having fun unpacking boxes
filled with pumpkins, fall leaves,
and all the beauties that give warmth
& color to our home this time of year.

Have a wonderful week.
Karen

Karen, your photography skills are out of this world! I need some lessons from you. Can't wait to see what your doing for fall. I have most of mine done, just haven't posted it because it still seems so early.

Oh, this made me want to unpack my fall things! The beautiful poetry and soothing music! Love it.
I'd love to have you link up at my blog hop today, On your heart Tuesdays!

What a beautiful post. I'm feeling the change of the seasons too. What a wonderful blessing.
Soup's on here, with homemade noodles, for this overcast and gray day!

Beautiful picture...great words. I am glad to see the 100 plus temps go, but hate that summer was sooooooooooo hot we didn't get to enjoy the great outdoors, no lake, very little swimming...so I think we will spend a lot of time outside this fall catching up on nature.

Enjoy decorating!!!
