Summers End

Home Sweet Home

We have been fortunate this year in that that we have been having an extended summer. The weather has been perfect the last several weeks with no humidity, blue skies, cool temperatures at night, and no unwanted bugs. This is what makes living in the Midwest this time of year a great place to be at.



In spite of having several a weeks of perfect weather if you look closely you will be able to see that fall is starting to make its appearance . . .


. . . a little color in the trees . . .


. . . the last of the farmer's crops to be harvested . . .

. . . vibrant sunsets . . .

. . . but with all of the beauty that fall offers us the only drawback is what will follow . . .


Winter 2007
. . . not really looking forward to the snow.

It is very pretty where ya all live, but do not want to be around in the winter. Do not want to do the snow and ice stuff. Have a wonderful fall.

Love,

Beautiful pictures and beautiful new background on your blog! Love the last picture! Now we can't wait for snow even though this fall weather has been great!

Just beautiful! We are content to see the snow on your pics; we don't want any on our yards, not that we are likely to get any. Love the new look of your webpage.

Brrrr. Photos go right from fall to winter. Made me cold just to think about it. It's cooling down here too.
