As Summer Fades to Autumn...
"The serene philosophy of the pink rose is steadying. Its fragrant, delicate petals open fully and are ready
to fall, with regret or disillusion, after only a day in the sun. It is so every summer. One can almost
hear their pink, fragrant murmur as they settle down upon the grass: "Summer, summer,
it will always be summer.""
~ Rachel Peden
(One of my favorite quotes ~ a bittersweet farewell to Summer, don't you think?)
I love Summer, really I do, but this go around as been unusually wet, humid and HOT. I haven't felt like blogging much, as you can see. Blame it on the heat!
My sunflowers are beginning to blossom. A favorite flower with bright sunny faces. I think just a few more days and I'll be able to take some more photos.
Super cute boots I picked up for a song, perfect for Autumn dressing. They will look much better worn with tights.
I'm ready to spruce things up a bit and give the place a good cleaning. I've gotten a bit lazy with housekeeping on these sultry days. Well, at least I fixed my blog up a bit to reflect late Summer.
I'm keeping this in mind for Fall decorating ~ perfectly cute pumpkin from Victorian Trading Co.. Soft colors work best at Rose Cottage ~ pretty ivories, faded pinks and touches of brown.
My teapot is modeling the new teacozy I made this weekend. The teacup with the peach was a gift from my son a Christmas or two ago.
I am going to enjoy these final days of Summer. Wonderful ripe, red tomatoes, juicy peaches, a few pale pink roses left to pick. As Summer gently fades to Autumn.
