Summer Will Soon Be Over

WE CANNOT BELIEVE THAT SUMMER IS JUST ABOUT OVER!  IS IT REALLY MID-AUGUST OR ARE GREMLINS MESSING WITH OUR CALENDAR??
Mom grows tomatoes and lots of flowers!  The veggies are all grown organically; no pesticides & only organic fertilizers

I GUESS FALL IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER AND THAT MEANS OUR DAYS OF PUTTERING IN THE GARDEN AND PLAYING ON THE BEACH WILL SOON BE OVER.

I love to lounge in Ma's garden, it's so cozy!

WITH ALL SUPER HOT WEATHER WE'VE BEEN HAVING IN THE NORTHEAST AND ALL THE HEAT & HUMIDITY WE'VE HAD A RECORD NUMBER OF STAYING INDOORS DAYS.  IT WAS JUST TOO DARN HOT TO GO OUTSIDE & PLAY!

I love these pretty flowers, they're SO tall!
OH WELL, WE WILL HAVE TO MAKE THE BEST OF THE LIMITED SUMMERTIME FUN WE HAVE LEFT.  HIGH ON OUR LIST IS ONE MORE ROAD TRIP AND POSSIBLY GETTING AT LEAST ONE OF US OUT ON THE WATER IN SOME KIND OF BOAT.  THAT'S BEEN A GOAL OF MOM'S FOR QUITE SOME TIME, LET'S SEE IF SHE ACHIEVES HER GOAL THIS YEAR! (We're betting No, we are so NOT the canine versions of Michael Phelps, LOL!)

Beautiful Springtime flowers near our former home in Arizona.
WE WILL SOON SAY GOODBYE TO SUMMER AND HELLO TO  THE BEAUTY OF FALL!

No too many more beach days for us.  They'll be replaced with romping in the leaves instead of on the beach!
 Are you sad that Summer is almost over, did you do all the fun stuff you wanted to this Summer?  What's left on your Summertime fun Agenda?  Leave us a comment & share, we love hearing from you!

    PS: The toy you saw me with is a GoughNut! It is one of the few toys Mom can leave down for me all the time -- I'm a very strong chewer! I can destroy the black KONGS in a matter of a few minutes. Impressive, no? But I haven't even put a dent in my GoughNut toys!

    1. Aww, thanks for the compliment on my garden. Phoenix stayed hot until October too, but as soon as Labor Day ends it should be much more comfortable here in NY!

  4. While it has been really hot, we don't want it to get too cold yet!

  5. Summer is too short here in NH, and I don't think we ever do everything we wanted too! But we've been getting Sheba for lots of swims, so there is that anyway.
    Love your Mom's gardening practices - yay for organic gardening! Do you know what those tall flowers are? I have a whole bunch of them at our new house here but I don't know what they're called?

    1. I'm glad Sheba has been getting some swimming in, that's great! I think the tall pink flowers are Phlox, they grow really well and are easy to propogate; when they get bug just rip out a chunk of the plant w/ some roots and plant it somewhere! I love NH, it's so beautiful there.

    2. I thought they looked like phlox but had never seen them so tall before! I only knew the spring ground cover type. I just love them, and they smell so sweet too. I'm definitely going to move some to other parts of the yard (they're pet safe too!).

  6. It's crazy, right? How did summer fly by so fast? I do like fall though because it's not quite as hot for getting out and doing some longer hikes I will miss all those gorgeous flowers though. :)

    1. It's unbelievable how fast this Summer flew by! Too much going on for us this year. I am looking forward to crisp, cool Fall weather and hiking!

  7. We are summer fans here too. Fall is nice, but summer is always so vibrant and makes us smile. Enjoy the last days.
