~Sweet September~

My bounty, ready for canning.
September with your cool misty mornings and warm summer like days....the plants in the garden are going by and there is a special smell to the air... signaling the end of summer. I love to have my coffee on the patio in the early morn. The hummingbirds are still chattering happily and darting to and fro. Many birds are at the feeders too. I love to wander in the garden, barefoot and pick the last of the tomatoes and cucumbers, peppers and oh, the herbs are at their best right now. While I am at it I pick some hydrangeas for drying. I just love the soft colors, lime green rosy pink, lavender blue, soft cream with a hint of pink. Mother nature at her best.

Hi Donna!

Your hydrangeas are so pretty! They look great in the white pitchers.

Looks like you will have lots of canned goodies this winter. Reminds me of home growing up.

Have a great day!

I'm so looking forward to fall and cooler weather. It's still so warm here where I live that it's hard for me to get into the fall mood. I LOVE your hydrangeas in your white ironstone pitchers... gorgeous! I have some, too. :) The fruits of your labor are really paying off in your vegetable garden... wow! We haven't started our vegetable garden yet, but I look forward to the day when we do. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!
Have a great weekend!
