Letting go of summer is very hard for me. Eldon asked me when I was going to decorate our farm entrance in my fall decor and I sort of shuddered!
I keep questioning why I'm like this, when everyone around me is so excited about fall being here. But standing in our Farm Fresh flower garden last night I had my answer. Letting go of anything you've loved and enjoyed is hard.
As I stood there and gazed at our beautiful flowers I felt like I could relate to the plants so well. The plants are tired from the long hot summer. Sort of wilted and beaten down a bit. Definitely not the vibrant green and strong plants they were a month ago.
But they are still happy and still working to put a smile on their face and bloom. Do you ever feel like that?
I think that is exactly how I feel. Tired and a bit beaten down from a summer of hard work, but hanging on with every fiber because it was such a happy summer.
So until the first freeze comes and puts a stop to the blooming.... you'll find me in the garden with a big smile on my face.
And maybe, just maybe, I might drag out some energy to leave the garden and put some fall decorations up!
The above picture of the little frog in our garden is how I feel... I'll just sit here and hang on to this leaf! Thank you to all my amazing readers for always writing, encouraging and helping me ease into the change of the season!
And finally! We have a book winner!
Lyn Moon is our winner!
P.S. Andrea and I have a wedding we are providing all the flower arrangements for on Saturday. Get ready for a blog post on that (probably from both of us!) in a few days!
