I'll Be Missing Summer...

Saturday, October 3, 2015

I love autumn.

But I have to confess, I'll be missing summer.

I'll miss the long warm days of sunshine.
The garden bursting with beautiful blooms,
I'll especially miss the hummingbirds.

Here in the south we are blessed with four beautiful seasons and autumn is gorgeous!
 If only winter didn't follow

Lantana is a big hit with butterflies and moths.

It's been a joy feeding and watching the hummingbirds.





Tiger Swallowtail butterflies also enjoy the lantana.

Just outside the kitchen window the dogwood tree is changing colors for fall.

  1. I will miss summer, too, for all the same reasons. Have a good weekend. I hope you're not in the path of the flooding rains.

  2. I'm with you, Cindy...thank God for interior decorating to keep us all busy!

  3. Wonderful pictures! I live in Phoenix, so NO I will not miss Summer. We are looking forward to Autumn and cooler temps.

  4. Your pictures are just wonderful, Cindy. You really take good shots! I will miss summer morning and evenings--but I also love the cooler weather. Our summer was not a good one so I am not sorry to see it go this year. I have already gotten rid of most of my summer plants and will finish decorating for fall this weekend. So glad to see a post from you--I am finally back! xo Diana ps--Happy weekend!

  5. If it wasn't for the heat and humidity, I would miss the Summer. I do love your pictures, though! They are very pretty! ~Rhonda

  6. I will not miss the heat and humidity one bit. I'm grateful for some cooler weather.

  7. I'm with you, Cindy! Summers here in Michigan are too short and I'm not even sure we hit 90 this summer! I have barely thawed since last winter - lol! Your photos are beautiful! I can look at them when there's 3 feet of snow on the ground.
    love and blessings~

  8. I'll miss summer with a passion ( I'm not a huge Autumn lover at all - it represents an end for me and is too close to winter ! )
    Such gorgeous photos you've captured ( it's making me miss it even more ) although your kitchen view must be spectacular in every season !!!

  9. Me too, especially with how you showcased it here perfectly Cindy. I can't wait for your Fall photos though!

  10. Yes, I will miss summer. It was too short this year. You have a great view out of that window. Thank you for joining Home Sweet Home!

  11. Autumn is my favorite season, and I love the crisp air and colors of fall. However the things you mentioned are the jewels of summer that I will indeed miss. Your photos are stunning and capture the beauty of summer well. We hung hummingbird feeders for the first time this year, and I was hooked on watching those gorgeous birds. I wasn't lucky enough to get such great pictures however, but that is my goal for next year. Thank you for sharing .
