A Look Back at Summer

Summer is over and  Indian Summer or autumn is here.
Skies are blue, weather is lovely.
The front porch has been decorated with mums and ice pansies.

A mini yellow rose blooms happily at the bottom of the steps.

  1. Hi Anne ... Out here in Illinois we were always told Indian Summer was after the first snow came and then when it warmed back up the Native Americans would attack the white settlers one last time. Maybe it's different out east. No problem though.

    Just saying hello once again. Take it easy and don't over-do.

    Say hi to Holly for me. Glad she responded back to me.

    Blessings dear one.

  2. Hi Annie;
    We are going through Indian summer here too. Sunny, no rain and in the 70's. I love this weather. In fact one day this week is predicted to reach 81 degrees. Love your photos, especially the flowers on each step. You live in such a beautiful neighborhood. Have a lovely last day of summer my friend. Hugs

  3. Hi Annie! What beautiful photos! Oh, I would love to live where you live. I can only imagine what it must be like to have that kind of view. :) I think the entire North East is going to be on the above normal side this week. They are calling for a low 80 for us but no humidity. Thank goodness! Hope you had a great weekend, sweet Annie! Have a beautiful Monday and enjoy that view for me. lol Big hugs!

  6. Hi Annie! Lovely flowers on the porch! I need to get my autumn flowers planted in my front yard flower bed. We went up to Morro Bay over the weekend... have you ever been there? There's something about it that reminds me of east coast beaches. Perhaps the fog horn going all night long despite it being a gorgeous 85 degrees and sunny and clear. nicest weather I've ever experienced there. I overdid it, too, on a big hike. But my soreness is mostly in my calves and ankles so I don't think I hurt my back in any way. Enjoy the fall week ahead! (((Hugz)))
