Farewell Summer

Summer is coming
to an end,
and here are a few
pictures that me and
Jess took while
strolling through town.
 
 
My kids used to
play on this
bridge when they
were little.
 
 
 
 
 
This is one mermaid
that makes me
happy.
 
 
 
 
Doesn't this tree
trunk look like an
animal's face?
 

 
 
 
 

Enjoy the last
of your summer days.

I really enjoyed looking at these pictures. I'm sad to see another summer come to an end, but I do love autumn. It is a splendid time of year.

Summer is indeed coming to an end. . . Your pictures were delightful, my friend, and yes, the tree does look like some kind of animal :)

My love and hugs to you!

I like the pink truck and that old tree trunk, too. It's so much fun to walk with a camera in hand for neat photos like these. Enjoy your week! We're loving the cool mountain air for a few more days! Hugs, Diane

Lovely ode to summer! It sure feels like fall here... 2pm and only 70 degrees! The heat is supposed to return this weekend and I want to savor as many moments outdoors as I possibly can before the cold sets in!

Mary Timmers said...

Hopefully our summer will linger into September, even though things are turning a different color. Enjoy your days!

Love,
Mary

Beautiful photos especially the one of the "lion face" - at least that is what I think the tree looks like. I also like the blue bird. Have a nice rest of the summer.

My friend, you have bluebirds!!!! WOW! They have to be my favorites!

Dearest one, I am so sorry to be late, but my morning was rushed since I had to run over to one school first to prepare then teach, then run to the other school...I am so tired!

Oh where did summer GO?

In our memories to bring up and celebrate. thank you again my sweet sister, for visiting my post!

Wonderful photos Sheri! We are at the end of winter here, and flowers are just starting to bloom. Seeing some color in nature will be so good. I'm excited.

Have a restful weekend Sheri!

What a lovely series of photos, Sheri! I enjoyed every one - amazing how you captured the iridescence of the bee's wings. Tire swings bring back sweet memories of childhood. xo Karen

Sheri, What a treat to scroll through your lovely photos. Such fun to stroll through old and familiar places. Have a great weekend. Mickie :)

Ann said...

Your pics are so lovely.
And sometimes I can't help but feel a little bit sentimental when I see places that me and my brother used to play in and go to with my Mom, just like when you mentioned that your children used to play in that bridge.

Marcia Pilar said...

Sheri, I so love taking walks with you. LOVE the tire swing, and that tree trunk is spectacular. I'm a fan of that mermaid too, would love to be able to share some coffee time with you. What's your favorite at SB? I like to order a mocha latte and a biscotti.
Have a lovely weekend, friend.
xoxo

Heather Lindstrom said...

I always adore your images, Sheri. Your flower shots captivate me. The roses of summer.....beautiful. Is that the Starbucks in Lincoln by any chance? Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend my friend!

That old tire swing brings back many memories. I hate to see summer go but i love Fall so much. I call it the little season stuck in the middle. Summer takes alot of it and winter gets the rest. Hope you have a nice holiday weekend. hugs and love, xo
