Is Summer Gone So Soon?

Thanksgiving hasn’t even come, but I see definite signs of Fall and coming cold weather. Yes, the trees are beginning to show beautiful autumn colours, but sadness creeps into my soul as I see the flowers wither and die, and it’s no longer comfortable sitting outdoors. (Who’s kidding who? It wasn’t comfortable outdoors most of this summer, but for a different reason.)

We ate out on the balcony at noon. The temperature was great, but the wind was so gusty we decided we’d better take off the roof of the canopy before it ripped to shreds.

And so the process of “putting away summer’ has begun – with reluctance. There are still tomatoes that need to ripen, and a large-bloomed flower, trying it’s best to give us a last hurrah, is battling to keep upright in the wind.

We have enjoyed such a wonderful group of people here at Country Blessings this summer. They have been like flowers in a garden, each with a beauty of its own, and each has enriched our place with their presence.

I want to give a special “thank-you” to all of you who have come. May you be blessed, and we would love to see you again.

Fall and Winter bring new beauty and new activities. We have been surprised at how much goes on around here in the winter. We’d love to invite you to come back during those seasons as well. Roads are kept well here, and we allow cancellations for inclement weather without penalizing you.

So I guess it’s time to shake off my nostalgia, get those towels folded, and have things ready for our next guests. We’ll be waiting for you!
