"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string." Lucy Maud Montgomery

Kickin' and Screamin'...
...Fall has been pushing and shoving gently coming our way the last few days. I must admit, I am not ready, although, I love Fall, the colors, the crisp-cool air, the falling leaves, apples, college-football, candles, food-holidays, and wreaths, I still long for the summer that never was. The gardens that did not produce wonderful sweetness and beautiful flowers despite my best efforts. I was still holding out hope for Indian Summer.
these candles are Citronella, out on my new deck, and were never intended to be "floating candles." That is until last weekend when we had well over an inch of rain Saturday night. *sigh* I spent some time out there yesterday and it is painfully obvious that I need to start in on the Fall clean-up.
this little table did not fare so well with the recent rain but it sure makes an interesting photo, don't you think? I wonder how many layers are on there and how they could have possibly threaded them all together.
I know that most of you have been having the summer from hades but are you really ready for Fall or just cooler temps?
