Summer’s Final Farewell

Can you believe it is time again for

Writer’s Workshop?

Oh yes it is!

Summer of ‘09 was a BLAST!

It came and went so fast!

It’s hard to believe it is done…

All that laughter, all that fun!

In the blink of an eye it did pass.

 

Are you loving fall so far?

When summer gathers up her robes of glory,
And, like a dream, glides away.

I like Fall much better than Summer.

I love the changing seasons but I have to say that I am a little sad about summer being over. It might have had something to do with the crazy wind today. Happy Fall!

Fall is my favorite season. It's finally chilly and the house is decorated for Halloween...so happy!

much love!

I love the angle of that picture I feel like I'm moving.

Here in TX, I'm loving the weather, but hating the scenery. I miss real fall in New England. Such a beautiful place, especially this time of the year. My family and I need to move back up north! =)

Fall is too cold here...winter even more so...it stings my face and fingers when I ride my bike to work...then in winter it rains and I have to drive....I like spring and I LOVE winter...bring on the sun!

Great photo as usual!

I know can you believe summer is over! It went from 90 degree weather in Boise to 40 degree weather and rain and snow within a week!

I love this photo though! It is awesome!

I'm ready for summer to be over...It's time for fall!

Great picture R!!

Stephanie Faris said...

Fall is my favorite time of year, although my boyfriend's daughter says summer is hers. I can see, at that age, how that would be the case.

brainella said...

I hate summer in Texas....it's nothing like what I'm used to in CA.
You always have the best posts and pictures!!!

Stacey said...

The flip-flops are what I love most about this photo. Not sure why, but I think they define summer.

Great job!

junebug said...

Such a wonderful phote and the poem was perfect. :-)

RR Mama said...

So ready for some cooler weather. It's a balmy 98 degrees with 148% humidity! Gotta love SE Texas weather.

Jennifer Haas said...

I do love fall, but it has not hit here yet, it was over 90 dergees here in Houston yesterday!

Los said...

I love all the seasons ... I guess I'm lucky I live in a place that has copious amounts of all 4 seasons.

With that said, man, I miss summertime! This summer seemed to fly by. I couldn't find the brakes! For instance, I got really sad when I stopped seeing the fireflys at night - that is a true sign that summer is over (for me at least).

Great pic, by the way!

Dan said...

You can certainly spot youth when they are building/rock climbing in floppies. If I tried that, there would be a need to call medical services in a trice.

Enjoy the memories of summer past.

Cortnie said...

Thanks so much for stopping by and the kind words! I love your blog...so poetic. I loved you favorite things too. I think if I had a perfect day, it'd probably involve my 4 yr old being calm and quiet all day long...a girl can dream right?

4 Lettre Words said...

WOW...I absolutely love that capture in B&W. And, boys in flip-flops rule! :o)

Sara E said...

I know my blogging from yesterday looks weird, but others have been able to comment .... it's just wonky ...
hopefully it will be better tomorrow

Our fall is really nice the past days. Really sunny and warm..
Although last week was a bit rainy.

Dot O said...

Love this photo, and your poem - you are sooo talented. Do you know that???

I hope you are well and I hope maybe you, Martha in PA, and I can arrange for a lunch during these lovely fall months..

Ha - I just wrote a post about our Texas weather. Yours was much more poetic!

Loved it!

I have spent the last 4 years in Canada and once Fall arrived I would put my head down and grit my teeth and prepare for the monster that was winter. Now, I am back in England and for the first time EVER I am able to take my time and can really appreciate this beautiful season without worrying what is around the corner! Thanks for your visit to my bloggy world. Have a great weekend. x
