Last, Lingering Days of Summer

Only a few more days left, folks, and the summer of 2013 will be history.

When I see farm stands filled with chrysanthemums and pumpkins, there's no denying fall's soon-to-be arrival.

While I prefer to stretch summer out as long as humanly possible, it's time to concede that it's almost kaput. 

So I took down the pink rose wreath from the front door and hung the one my daughter made that's covered with autumn leaves.  

 This week, hubs and I took a ride to a Whitney's Farm Stand in Cheshire, Massachusetts.  

It's a great place that's always well stocked with good quality merchandise.

We bought some veggies and yes, some mums.

Most photos in this post were snapped  at Whitney's with the exception of the little lambie, shown below.

She just happened to show up in our back yard. Can you imagine that?

(She's our darling little one-year-old granddaughter who steals our hearts every single day, regardless of the season.

We love it when her parents come to town to visit and let lambie spend time with Grammie.)

Precious little "lambie!"

One thing we do every fall is journey to my Alma Mater for Homecoming! Always a great time! Since our three daughters also graduated from the same college, it is often like a family reunion.:-)

I sing songs like " Autumn Leaves" and "September Song" and long for rain as it hasn't rained in months where I live.

Look at those big BROWN eyes! And that cute little lamb hat. And her shoes so pretty.

I know you love her to death.

Love the flowers too.

Every Autumn we go to a place called Apple Hill where they have the most delicious apple goodies ever. We've been going there since the kids were small.

Your "little lamb" Granddaughter is precious.

Beautiful child! What fun for you.
Flowers are lovely too. Can't believe where summer has gone. I bought some mums and some pumpkins but it has been raining on them since...

Jemma said...

Every Autumn we buy mums, pansies and pumpkins and I make chili!
Beautiful flowers and oh your little one is absolutely precious and beautiful!
Warm Hugs,

First, your granddaughter is very cute especially in that lamb costume :) No wonder you as grandparents love her a lot!
Chrysanthemums are Autumn flower sin my native country too, and usually used for bringing on the first day of school.
I never fail to create some Autumn project, especially for Halloween (and of course, celebrate this holiday!)

Your lambie is beautiful. At first I thought she was a porcelain doll, then I thought of Elizabeth Taylor as a baby. I know you will have so much fun with her this fall season.

Susan, you have an angel lambie! What a beautiful little girl. I cannot believe she is a year already. Being a grandmother is the best!
One of the names for the full moon on Thursday is the chrysanthemum full moon.
I loved your mini blog! Left you a comment
So good to be back in touch.

Hello from Spain: congratulations on having a granddaughter so cute. Children are always a joy. Every fall I buy chestnuts ... I love. Keep in touch

Shirley said...

Oh My Susan,
Your little lamb is soooo beautiful! I love her eyes and she must bring such joy to you. Nothing like a little one to tickle your heart.

Susan: She is just perfect. I think she gets prettier every day. Yes, I am packing because I have to paint my living room and repair the air condition damage. It is taking so long. Have a great time with that Granddaughter. Hugs, Martha
