Hints of Fall at Summer’s End

Summer’s End

By Nancy Hughes
No flowers to plant,

No garden to tend,

As summertime lazily

Comes to an end.

It’s time to sit back

and deliciously savor

The beauty of the season

and the fruits of our labor.

Farewell to summer;

for autumn make way,

With this last celebration

We call Labor Day!


Poor Princess has been recuperating from minor surgery this week! She is on the mend and enjoying the cinematic classic “Barbie in Fairytopia”…for the 100th time.

  1. Gentle hugs and soft kisses to The Princess! A lovely poem and beautiful photos too! Thank-you for taking time to post, always a delightful visit.


  2. I really enjoy this time of year – the little touches you’ve made in your home are prefect!
    I’m stopping by today from The Art of Home-Making Mondays!

  3. It is an interesting time of the year… enjoying the flowers and gardens as they bloom, but knowing they are on the way out for the year. It is a beautiful time of the year though and I do enjoy it. 🙂


  4. Hope your princess is better. I think the only thing worse than a SICK kid is a CONVALESCING kid. You don’t want them to do too much yet and they don’t understand their limits (kinda like not scratching the chicken pox!). And the need to be entertained… hope you folks get to have your rest, too!

    1. She is pretty resident but she didn’t like recuperating rules. She’s feeling better, this surgery was pretty easy. Unfortunately she has a few more in the future. She is back to school and loving ever minute of it.
