Feeling a little like Fall...

August, really?  It's starting to look like Fall to me.

This morning the low was in the 50s here at the lake.
One of my girls wore a sweatshirt to school.

Really?  This is mid-August in Indiana?
But I am not complaining!
I have been able to get more done outside this week.

Today's views are of my beautiful old-fashioned marigolds from seed.
They are pretty all summer... in the late fall just collect the seed heads.
And scatter them where you want them next year.

This weeks Tuesday Garden Party had 75 entries!
They are wonderful, if you have not seen them... do so.
I hope you can join us with your post next week too.
I also added a badge to the side bar... love for you to add it to your lists.

  1. I'm looking forward to the Fall returning to SO.CA. I didn't have a turn out from the party,I'm not sure why?Maybe My blog is too different from the five host or something just went wrong.Your home and all the pics of Your yard are very pretty.Please visit any time -Denise

  2. I noticed the same thing today as it is in the 70's here on Long Island and I am already cleaning up the summer garden. It may be an early fall. Your photographs are lovely!

  3. Similar weather here won't start here until after Labor Day so we still have some summer and a big state fair to go before people will start thinking of all. I hope the weather shifts back to summer heat.
