Are you ready for fall?

I'm sorry for my absence but sometimes life just gets in the way. I want to say thank you for all your well wishes during Hurricane Irene. We weathered the storm and had a few limbs down, two small uprooted trees, and standing water in the backyard. It's been a hectic week but my garden is slowly returning to its natural state.

I'm ready for fall to begin, how about you?
Our mornings have been cooler, a sweater has made it's way out of my closet, mums are at the garden centers and market baskets are filled with apples to be enjoyed ~ just a few signs that fall is on it's way! And it's now September.

This coming weekend we will enjoy the last of the baseball games, and a Labor Day get-together at my sister's.

I hope all of you will have a great weekend. I'll be around to visit you next week.

In answer to your question ... Yes!! After this hot summer, fall can't arrive fast enough for me.
I must admit I have been a bit concerned about you. Glad to know that you are safe and sound.
Enjoy your weekend.

Sounds like you got the same damage as we did. Sure made a mess of the yard.

Yes, I'm ready for fall. Would be nice if it lasted a long time but never does.

I am not quite ready for fall. Summer was so hot, that I missed a lot of it! So now I am trying to make up for it.

I do love fall though...

Glad to see you back posting Donna, I was a bit worried.;)
I am sorry but I am not ready for fall at all. Our summer has been cold and rainy, so I have definitely not felt like the third season was even here.
But I recall that in NC I was always welcoming fall.:)
Lovely image.;)
Have a wonderful long weekend,
