{a fond farewell to summer}

. . . lovely to be back again after a stunningly beautiful weekend filled with sunny, sunny skies and balmy mid-afternoon breezes fitting for the last long-weekend of the summer -- even as the early mornings turn crisp and it's nearly time for soft scarves, tall boots and elegant trenches, one last look at the perfect loveliness we leave behind . . .

Shame on you! I was all "yeah, I'm ready for fall" and dumping summer like an old fling when I saw a. that orchard picture and b. the open door picture. Ah! Really, that is unfair!

quite lovely :)

Sigh. The sweet melancholy of late summer and the harvest moon. Thank you for the beautiful, beautiful photos here, and for the delightful inspiration. I am cherishing the last blooms of Rosa Bibi Maizoon in my garden... soon the frost will send her into a winter slumber.

le sigh. It does hurt to see summer go. I feel like my most beautiful memories remain in summer. However, all must change in order to renew itself. All the more reason to cherish each moment. ^_^

I love that first pic so much... It's sunny today so I'm hoping summer isn't done yet. Bet that means it's going to rain any second now!

Hello Felicity! Thanks so much for the warm welcome back -- it was a weekend get-away, for the last long weekend of the summer :)

My favourite is the second as well -- Collette Dinnigan's beautiful place!

As for Chicago, working on putting together a few photos tonight and hopefully will have something up for tomorrow?

Always lovely to hear from you + much love,
R.
