Summer is Almost Over

I took these pics last spring.  We had such a cool wet spring and
it seemed that summer would never come to Idaho.

But it did finally arrive.  Although we have had some hot temps,
it seemed cooler than the previous summer.  So much cooler that I never
felt the need to put the bikini top on my Jeep.

Now August is half over and there is only one more week of summer
vacation for the kids in my neighborhood.  Soon I'll be thinking of the 
glorious days of September and October.  Football games, sweaters, tail
gate parties at BSU.  Getting out the fall decorations and deciding on 
which pumpkins to purchase for the front porch.

Time goes by so fast!  Now when I look at this pic of a blossom
from my snowball bush, it seems like just yesterday I was longing for 

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Stop by and visit ~ 

Okay Bentley ~ let's get ready to visit Grandma!

Susan and Bentley


  1. It doesn't seem right that it is almost over, when we've had so little warm weather. Yesterday it never got above 70. Certainly it's pleasant, but not as summery as I'd like.
    Lovely summer photos!

  2. We have had a hot summer also, but just recently it is cool and rainy, the leaves are starting to change. I think our summer is over and fall is on it's way. Love your photos for today!

  3. I think we will have summer until Thanksgiving! We spell August UGHUST here. Real tired of 100+ temps all the time. Love your pillow! Great photos.

  4. Hope you and Bentley have a wonderful Sunday.
    Love fall for all the reasons u mentioned!

  5. Hi Susasn, I so agree with your post because here in Colorado we had a wet spring and I thought summer would never arrive. We've had a lot of hot days-none in the 100's though. I'm not ready for fall yet because after that we have winter and I'm really not ready for that. So I'm enjoying every day as it comes.
    Have a great day.

  6. Yep, time sure does fly! I always look forward to fall. We've had a full day of rain here, but at least it's cooler:@)

  7. When I think of summer ending I just want to cry! Our winter was so cold and snowy and our spring so rainy! We've had a wonderful summer this year, as you mentioned, not as warm as last years, but it's been glorious!

    Have a great day!


  8. I'm so glad that you have had a wonderful summer. I know we are all looking forward to fall especially for the cooler weather, and football!


  9. I can't wait for summer to be over!! It's been so horribly hot you can barely go outside. I'm looking forward to fall!

  10. Fall sounds fabulous to me and so does rain. Your image is beautiful Susan.

  11. Hi Susan~! I know how you feel. You turn around and wow it's almost fall. I love spring and I love fall...but winter brrrrrrr only so much. Let's just enjoy today and not worry about tomrrow ;-)

  12. Oh isn't it going by so fast? I can't stand it. Not ready for back to school but I am ready for fall decor. My fave. Love love love your header with all of its red and white.

  13. I feel like summer flew by. I so don't want it to end!!!

    Thanks for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.
