Farewell bright Summer,
Hello crisp Autumn!

Just beautiful Lady Farmer :)

I love the photos :) Especially Thelma! I can honestly say that I am glad that Summer is on it's way out. I absolutely love Autumn and the cooler weather, not to mention snuggling by the fire with my honey :)

Thanks for sharing and have a beautiful day!

Dear Lady Farmer,

Oh how lovely! I thought your doe was a buck, with the branches behind her head! And Thelma DOES look beautiful~have your chickens finished molting already? Ours have just begun, and look like drowned rats! My rooster looks mighty silly without his curly tail feathers!

I hope you do enjoy the last of your summer.

Hello Dear Lady Farmer!

Lovely post full of beautiful pictures. I especially love the cosmos!

I just finished editing photos for a weekend post titled Late Bloomers with pics of flowers from my yard. I will miss them but really love the autumn time!

Although according to the weather forcast it looks like we are going to be back in a heatwave over the weekend!

Dear RaeAnn,

What amazing images you have captured on your farm! They are gorgeous...the lighting is beautiful on the photos. Thank you for sharing your bit of heaven today. I feel so relaxed after the visit!

Do you think your Thelma and our Bob would get along?

Your comments and words of encouragement at Rose Cottage are like a cup of cold water. Thank you for all your kindness. It means so much.
