Fall???

Today I was going to decorate my home for the Autumn season - the first day of Fall is on Tuesday so the timing is perfect!! I even redecorated my blog last night to get me in the mood.

Well, we woke up to perfectly blue sunny skies and unseasonably warm weather!! I just can't do it - I can't light the spice scented candles and put out my pumpkins and colored leaves yet.

The air smells like freshly cut lawn and it still feels and looks like we ought to be hanging out on a brightly colored beach towel in a sun dress and flip flops!!
Another day - when the rains return I will set out my pretty red and orange decorations - for now I'm reveling in our extended summer - soon enough the seasons really will change and I will feel the urge to cozy up!!
Some pictures of the flowers in my garden that still think it's summer too:

Hollyhocks:


Roses:

Feverfew:

My baskets:

My unnamed clematis:

Have a lovely, blessed weekend and enjoy these last days of summer!!

Beautiful pictures! I'm with you. It's hard to even think fall is right around the corner when you have 95 degree weather here in San Antonio :)

Blessings to you and your family,
Eevee

Alexandra liked the flowers, but she loved the frogs, although Esther is still her favorite. Esther and a frog would perfect.

Hi sweet friend! Your flowers are LOVELY!!
I am all falled up everywhere, except I want a few mums for out front! My home colors are fallish anyway, so the oranges and reds just make everything a bit warmer!! Just love it. Of course I do love the contrast with the sunny skies and warm temps!! The best of both seasons!!

Hope all is well with you and that you have a wonderful week!!

Love n hugs,
Becky
