Summer Dwindles Down
Well, I guess it had to happen ~ Summer is coming to an end. But, for a few very short weeks, we get the best of both worlds. Gone is the intense humidity, frantic vacation plans, camp schedules, etc. Instead, we gain Summer's gorgeous warmth, backyard BBQ's (less bugs), campfires, swimming at the lake, weekend morning at the Farmers Markets (and lets not forget the fact that the kids are back in school:) For me, one of the best things about this time of year is my PeeGee Hydrangea Tree. It never fails to make me swoon first thing inthe morning, pressing at my windows. The bees just love it ~ it literally humms all September. Even the garden spider enjoys its leafy canopy and heavy bobbing blossoms. Which sometimes makes for a surprising bouquet.
After shaking out the squatters, I bundle them up and dry them in any receptical worthy of their beauty. They fill most rooms in my house. This particular lovely vase, is actually a broken oil lamp. I fell in love with its milk glass and rusty iron base, hiding in a cardboard box at (where else) yes, the flea.
Joining Faded Charm once again for White Wednesday.
