A Hint of Autumn

                                                                          Hello everyone,

                                                           The last couple of days have been
                                                           hot and humid here but there are hints
                                                           autumn here and there as I have noticed
                                                           a few leaves starting to change and before
                                                           this heat wave struck the evenings were cool.

                                                           I am not one to give up on summer early
                                                           though so my tea today has just a hint
                                                           of fall.
                                                                     I picked a bouquet from the
                                                                     garden with some autumn

                                                                             Using chintz teacups for
                                                                             our tea today.
                                                                            Daliahs, hydrangeas, cosmos,
                                                                            rudbeckias and phlox.

                                                                                 A vintage tablecloth that reminds
                                                                                 me of early fall colors.
                                                                               Tea in the terrace.

                                                                                 Pretty chintz teacups.

                                                                                  Just in case you wanted to know.

                                                                A peek at the garden ~ still lots of
                                                                          color but definitely showing signs of
                                                                          decline after a dry summer and well
                                                                          a hint of fall in the air.
                                                                             I love all the seasons but just planning
                                                                           to enjoy summer as long as I can
                                                                                 My sister is home from Vancouver so
                                                                            we will be touring around the Island and
                                                                            enjoying time together.

                                                                                                  Thank you for your visit!

Dear Carolyn, it is a great joy to go with your blog through the seasons, with your beautyful photos and impressions. With your wonderful posts you make every season more intense and brighter and warmer for me (and certainly not only for me). Thank you so much! Have a delightful time with your sister!
All the best wishes for you! - Siret

I like the yellow vase and the way you stacked the cups.

SO nice to visit your blog again Carolyn! Your garden is still looking lovely! Even with the lack of rain. I've had to water my windowboxes every day. What a dry summer! But it's been great for the tourists!

Hope you have a lovely visit with your sister. I'm sure we'll see some great Island pictures from your tour!
