Memories of Summer

My husband (a teacher) went back to work this week which always signifies the end of summer for me. My mind is on fall and Halloween now even though the temps here are in the 90's. At least the nights are going down to the low 60's. We've had a great summer full of beach trips, whale watching, Longwood, museums, dips in the pool, hummingbirds, Assateague ponies, dinner parties, firefly catching, veggie growing, flower picking and more! All good things must come to an end and now we look forward to leaves turning, pumpkin carving, trick or treating, hayrides, scarecrows, Halloween decorating, bonfires and one of my favorites... the sound of geese flying overhead on a crisp autumn morning.

Sea shells and wild ponies.

Monarch with a torn wing at Longwood Gardens.

Zoe and her cousin Faith. One of my favorite photos.

Hundreds of roses at Hershey Gardens.

Vibrant colors in my own garden.

A visit this morning from my fairy like friend.

Of of my first Halloween horses of the year, currently on Ebay!

To me, the change of summer into fall is the starkest difference in mood of the year. I think it represents a lot of things, namely a relaxed version of your life into schedules and routines again. Also, the newness of our lives going into another year (let's face it, everyone's years are marked by the school calendars and does not really come in January).

You have indeed had a busy summer - and I've enjoyed reading all about it here on your blog. :) I love your Halloween Horse - he came out beautifully. By the way, I wanted to thank you personally for sending the horse pendant to my niece. She fell in love with it. I've been trying to get her to have her photo taken while wearing it - but that hasn't happened yet. But just know that she truly shares your love of horses and really loved your creation. :) Theresa
