Sunday Reflections…

The weather has been so nice! Cool Sunday mornings in August mean ‘get out and look around’! Everything’s so lush, the butterfly‘s 🦋 are everywhere, the dry flies are buzzing… Late Summer in Tennessee ❤️

Such a beautiful day to get out and ‘Feel’ late Summer! Fall will be here before we know it… I’m gonna try to get all the Summer I can till it’s gone 😊





Heat still sizzles in the fields
In August summer still yields
The sun shines to no regret
Wind sauntering ’til sunset

‘though heat is being cool off by the rain
Preserving flowers, and meadow – green
But summer still taking what it brings
The August incense with fugacious wings

Bounty blooms, butterflies, bees are insane
Birds, crickets sing and the night listens
Summer’s sky, bright burst so clear
It’s the late August in summer’s fair

Summer in August still in standby
Sooner balmy weather is coming by
The hot temper will bicker with cool air
With soothing breeze here comes September

Have a great Sunday!

Sunday Reflections…

This week alone I have heard several people say they are ready for Fall weather… I too love the Fall, but I’m still enjoying the Summer… I used to find myself mourning the seasons as they pass, No more! I endeavor to enjoy them as they come. And right now, good old hot, sticky August is on the table 😊

One of the things I love most about Summer, is my shady porch swing😊 I just Love my tree ferns & flowers 🌺 But like the man says, Fall is Coming’!

“Whilst August yet wears her golden crown,
Ripening fields lush- bright with promise;
Summer waxes long, then wanes, quietly passing
Her fading green glory on to riotous Autumn.”

~ Michelle L. Thieme, August’s Crown 

Have a great Sunday 🙏🏻

What a beautiful August morning! Sunday morning = Family breakfast! Fresh melons & sliced tomatoes with eggs and French toast. Perfect  Summer Sunday Morning! Blessings overflow… I’m very Thankful for all my Blessings!

Breakfast with lots from the Garden!

August is here! Summer is flying by! I’m going to try to enjoy each day to the fullest! August always flies by for me. It’s here, then it’s gone  in a flash…

August also means LOTS of fresh veggies to can and preserve. These are chopped up to make Mamaw Frans Chow Chow.

 

“August rushes by like desert rainfall,
A flood of frenzied upheaval,
Expected,
But still catching me unprepared.
Like a matchflame
Bursting on the scene,
Heat and haze of crimson sunsets.
Like a dream
Of moon and dark barely recalled,
A moment,
Shadows caught in a blink.
Like a quick kiss;
One wishes for more
But it suddenly turns to leave,
Dragging summer away.”
~ Elizabeth Maua Taylor

Enjoy the day –
