Ode to Summer

Well it's was bound to happen sooner or later.... summer is coming to a close. So here is my tribute to our good ole' summertime.


Enjoying early morning coffee on the back deck in my favorite cotton gown.

Heading out for loads of adventures....

Rainbows at the beach

Finding the perfect shell... only this one was inhabited and had to stay

Visiting with family/loved ones





Bringing home a new friend


Boat rides

Celebrating birthdays...



...with cake and juicy sugar sweet watermelon



Perfect purple zinnias



Bumper crops of figs


Meeting at the lake
Cousins hanging out


Waiting out the rain

Washing up :)

Ohhhh, I will miss the dog days of summer.... hurry back, OK!?

Well, now I know why you haven't posted. You have been having a wonderful summer! What lake is that? It looks a lot like Lake Lure here in NC.

Miss your posts, glad to see you back!
Hugs,
Penny

Hi Rhonda!! LOVE all your photos...looks like it was a wonderful summer for you! I am looking around blogland and I am seeing everyone is decorating for fall....I think I am going to drag out my fall goodies and get crackin'. I bought some mini pumpkins yesterday at the grocery store so I have an incentive now.

LOVE that new puppy...
Hugs,
Robin

I missed your posts, welcome back..Your son is getting so big and he's so handsome, love his big smile.
Summer always seems to come and go so fast..My grand daughter was so happy to get back to school, she will be 12 this month and my 5 year old grandson was very excited about his First Day of school.
What did you name your new puppy?.
Have a sweet day, Hugs, Elizabeth

Summer is such a tremendous season for me, and is also my most favorite season! And during this time of the year, me and my family always go to the beach, go on fishing, riding on our boat and take good photographs that we could treasure forever! Happy summer!
