End of Summer Mosaic


End of Summer mosaic 2

Labour Day Weekend is upon us and that signals to me that it is the end of the summer. Do I stop wearing white jeans now and put my summer purse away are the big questions that occupy my mind now that September is here.

My ornamental grasses are beginning to flower with large plumes. I just love to look at them.  The chipmunk is busy eating and storing the rose hips.  He makes a big mess on the deck with his left overs.  The Cup Plant grew to 10ft high with oodles of blooms.  I have noticed that some of the Maple trees are beginning to turn and it won’t be long before all of the trees begin to show off their fall colour.  

I am joining Mary at DearLittleRedHouse for Mosaic Monday.  I hope that you are enjoying the weekend too.



Haha Val, no whites after Sept. 1 :-)
Trees are not turning in North Bay yet and we have been getting super weather all weekend.

Hi Valerie, your photo collage is beautiful and I love your new header. I can't believe the change in temperature here in the past few days. I'm not liking it either as I have really enjoyed the sunny heat we've had here all summer. Oh well, time goes on. I hope you have a great week. Blessings, Pamela

Even though the sun's warmth is strong, there's a definite chill in the air as soon as the sun disappears. But your flowers are so pretty, showing their late summer colours and textures. Let's enjoy summer as long as we can.

I'm wearing white shorts today for the last time - so sad to be putting them away for the season. But I'm also ready for the changes that fall brings - cooler mornings, more rain (please, please, please) and the colours of the maple trees.

Happy last blast at summer!!

What a beautiful mosaic, Valerie!
Here in NY, Labor Day signals the end of summer for us too, and it is indeed beginning to look like fall. I always keep summer clothes and accessories out until it is simply too cold to wear them. The season is short enough as it is. Oh, my Mom would be mortified!! She was a "definitely no white after Sept. 1st" person! :-)

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
