Home and Garden Thursday
“Whilst August yet wears her golden crown,
Ripening fields lush- bright with promise;
Summer waxes long, then wanes, quietly passing
Her fading green glory on to riotous Autumn.”
– Michelle L. Thieme, August’s Crown
August – the last few days of summer are upon us. Here in Georgia summer has been quite mild with more rain than usual. I have loved the cool mornings. I see signs of autumn. Yesterday the air was heavy with fog and I noticed the wildly growing Sweet Autumn Clematis in bloom. I’m treasuring these passing moments that will soon be but a memory. My two favorite seasons are spring and autumn for their coolness and color. I am so glad to be able to enjoy this summer – without too much heat and humidity. How is it in your corner of the world? I am so delighted when you all share your talents with Home and Garden Thursday.
Here’s what I shared with you since our last party:
Have you ever just wanted something sweet? My daughter and I did last week, we also had an abundance of fresh summer fruit…I made this Blueberry Peach Pound Cake
I found this and a matching chair at The Habitat Restore. I knew they’d be perfect side chairs to sit alongside my new china cabinet. I changed the rest of the dining room chairs as well – painting the red chairs to blue. Also, Bloggers with Haven have partnered with Habitat for Humanity in ‘Hands of Haven’ to contribute in building and donations. It’s a marvelous collaboration!
It’s ‘Simplify Your Life Week!‘ I share 10 ideas on how you can simplify your life.
