"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands........" 1 Thessalonians 4:11

I walked around the property this early morning


taking photos of the changing scenery of these late summer days.....although there is still much green in the trees and prairie,
I take a closer look......and  it seems that  everything knows ...summer will soon end.
The flowers that once were cheery and bright in the garden, now
take on a different beauty of September to come.
Anything that has been growing this summer  has taken on a darker color.

The "used to be" late evenings ....with the sun taking it's time to color the sky in vibrant hues as it sets, are getting shorter as dark greets us much earlier.

There is a coolness in the early morning.......welcoming me to take longer, slower walks.........
by noon the raging heat, reminding me it is still summer,  quickly takes over for the rest of the day.
For many, vacation time is over, school has started back up, and everyone
settles back into the routine of their daily lives.  
This summer , as hot and furious it seemed to be for most of us,
will soon be bidding us farewell and the breeze of autumn will soon
come whispering to us, promising cool days with a beauty in it's arrival. 
Here's wishing you fun and happy moments in these last summer days.
