Yesterday, I cried uncle.
I gave up my wait for autumn temperatures (the weatherman says it will feel fallish by the weekend, but really . . . will it ever be out of the 90's?) and Bekah and I jumped in the van and went out and grabbed some fall!
What's the weather like where you are? Endless summer? Delightfully fall? Dreadfully chilly?
I'm sorry it's still so warm there. Actually, it was close to 80 and raining here yesterday. I like it better when our high temp is 65. Time spent with a daughter is always wonderful, isn't it. Hope you have a great week, and yes, cooler temps!ReplyDelete
65 degrees is my happy place too! And yes, daughter time is wonderful!Delete
A decided change in the weather overnight...rain and cool 50°s. It’s a puttery day! Hope that the promised cooler temps do arrive this weekend. I know how welcome they will be. I purchased some Keurig pumpkin spice coffee yesterday. Not yet sure how I feel about it after my morning cup of coffee. That’s a great price on those mums! Ours are a bit pricier up here, which is why I am not going to purchase more than the small ones already purchased for the graves and one wee yellow one for myself. I want some three medium pumpkins to climb the outside steps since there’ll be no ladder climbing to place pumpkins on the transom window ledge.ReplyDelete
How wonderful that you and Bekah got out and about today. It looks like autumn there even if the temps haven’t quite cooperated. Happy 🍁 October to all!
I love a puttery day, Vee! These pumpkins and mums were at a farmstand out in the country. We stumbled on it last year and made a point to return this year. We also visited my sister- and brother-in-laws stand. I think that prices are better at these privately owned places, sold directly from the farmer.Delete
It really is starting to look like fall! I am ready!
some...three! LOL! Lousy editor I am.ReplyDelete
Looks like you choose your pumpkins by the stem, I do too! How fun that you still have Bekah to run around with.ReplyDelete
The stem is the thing, isn't it Melissa?!Delete
I love outings with Bekah!
Fall hasn't arrived here yet in s.e. FL. I worked outside for 2 hours, sweating. Temp 83, real feel 88, humidity 73%, cloudy, breezy and I got rained on a couple of times. Last week I was able to do 2 hours of outside work one morning, then do three the next. That's a huge difference from not feeling like doing anything at all outside all summer long. I am thankful I am still able to get my exercise this way and always glad when the temps drop.ReplyDelete
Pumpkins and mums ~ definitely fall decor. Enjoy your time with Bekah.
Happy Autumn ~ FlowerLady
I know how much you enjoy time in your lovely garden, Lorraine, so I am glad that you have been able to spend some time there! I am sure that you feel the difference when the temperatures (and the humidity) drop!Delete
This morning there was a hint of frost on the roofs. I'm hoping the dahlias will hang on just a bit longer. It's supposed to begin raining tomorrow and that will warm things up a wee bit. A pot of mums speaks fall in volumes! Enjoy faux fall and I hope the real thing arrives soon for you. I can't imagine 90 degrees in September/October.ReplyDelete
That's exactly what we're enjoying: faux fall! 😁 But frost on the roof seems like fall-into-winter . . . soup weather!Delete
Those are great prices for mums and pumpkins. It is very unseasonably cold here. But I am still loving the color changes.ReplyDelete
It seems like no one is having a "typical" fall this year! Like you, I am enjoying the signs of autumn. It is such a beautiful time of year, isn't it?!Delete
We are still in the 90's here in North Texas. It's supposed to be in the high 70's by early next week. Keeping my fingers crossed!ReplyDelete
Won't that feel wonderful, Jan?! Can't wait!Delete
It's the endless summer here for us as well, Cheryl! Thanks for crying uncle, enough is enough. Love your pretty pumpkins and pretty mum on the steps. Autumn will be welcome when it comes to the Pineapple House. ♥ReplyDelete
I am tired of constant A/C and crazy humidity. I am ready to make soup and eat dinners on the sun porch and walk outside without feeling as if I stepped into a tropical rain forest. (Do I sound a bit dramatic? 😉)Delete
Really though, Autumn will be welcome here . . . and there too, right?
It was wierd hot today!! Then the thunderstorm came and cooled things off a bit. The colours are starting in the trees and it get's dark so early - starting to feel Fall. Happy October to you.ReplyDelete
Yes, we're just waiting on the temperatures to say October! Soon . . .Delete
Oh how I long to follow you and decorate for fall. It has been so hot...just plain nasty and dry here but relief is coming this weekend...right as we get ready to load up the trucks and head to TN...perfect timing! And wow, what great prices on those mums and pumpkins! Anyway, there won't be much room in the RV for many decorations! Happy Fall!ReplyDelete
On your way to Tennessee!! Hooray!! 🎉Delete
Today the sky was gray...a wonderful chill in air this morning...only little snippets of moisture. Potato soup simmering on the stove...that is my day...soon the house will be full of noise and people! Forever blessed!ReplyDelete
That sounds like a perfect day!Delete
Cheryl, I agree, let's get on with fall! Summer is very hard on me (I think my personal thermostat broke decades ago), and I always eagerly await the first crisp day of autumn.ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness, my personal thermostat is in the same condition! It can be quite a problem!Delete
Fall has finally arrived here and I am thrilled!
We are used to 95+ degrees and humidity down here but it seems more intolerable the longer it lasts, especially into October! And I almost don't remember what rain is like, it's been so long! But we know cooler temperatures will come eventually.ReplyDelete
I think you're right. When the August weather lingers into September . . . and then October . . . it seems like fall will never arrive. But finally, those cooler temperatures are here! I am loving it!Delete
You must be in the South! My daughter and sons live in Texas and Oklahoma and my daughter wrote me and said Fall has arrived 'cause it's only 85 degrees. I love Fall and everything that goes along with it.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed all your photos and your lovely blog. I'm following so I'll be back!
Oh my. Fall is 85 degrees?! We are in Maryland (the state which Northerners consider South and Southerners consider North 😉) and fall weather is all over the place here. But summer did seem to go on forever this year!Delete
Thank you for visiting, Tori! It's always nice to "meet" a new blog friend.
