"If I could save time in a bottle
the first thing that I'd like to do
Is save every day till eternity passes away
just to spend them with you" ~ Jim Croce
Where did the Summer go?... as much as I love Autumn, my favorite Season of all, I am already missing my garden... lazy days sitting on my porch soaking up the sun... watching the hummingbirds sip nectar from my feeders... soon, they will begin their long journey south for the winter... I hate telling them goodbye... so I will just say a little prayer for a safe journey for them... and anxiously await their arrival next Spring... I do love living in a beautiful place where the countryside changes with each passing Season... (although I am not a winter person, our countryside covered in new~fallen snow is breathtaking, but awfully cold!)... the mornings are chilly now... a sweater is needed on our walks... and as we walk, I notice all of the changes in the air... much of my garden has already started it's long sleep for the winter... and Spring seems so very far away... so for now, I will say farewell to Summer... bottle up all of her beauty in soft pink roses from my garden... and embrace the new beauty of Autumn... with a wish that it will last well into Indian Summer before our cold winter settles in... goodbye for now sweet Summer... welcome glorious Autumn!... xoxo...
