Are you ready??

I took a stroll outside yesterday and took a few snapshots of the last vestiges of summer.

 Does that make sense?

 I know "Vestige" means " a trace of something that is disappearing or no longer exists".

Sounds like summer to me. :)

My gorgeous hollyhocks that have a very few flowers left on them. I really need to do some trimming today, but the weather here calls for HOT, HOT, and more HOT along with possible rain.
 That part of summer has NOT disappeared. 

I can't believe that I have beautiful flowers like this and also leaves falling from the trees. Just seems wrong somehow. 

 I found that the huge field directly across from our house is filled with big orange pumpkins.

 Definitely FALL coming!!  I am ready...

Are YOU ready??

That looks like a Redosier Dogwood Shrub. http://www.naturehills.com/bushes-and-shrubs/dogwood-shrubs/dogwood-redosier?gclid=CMufst-mnrkCFYyi4AodXlEAuw
I think it's a really pretty bush! I love the white berries!

I love your Holly Hocks, I just can't seem to grow them, maybe I'll try again next year. And pumpkins, I love a field of pumpkins, we use to have the growing in my mom's compost heap they looked great.

I love fall and looking forward to it this year. Our summer has been too humid and too much rain. I will be decorating in the next couple of weeks.

Hollyhocks! The sight of them always takes me down memory lane, when I picked the blooms and flower buds to create little flower dolls. I have resolved to find a little corner in the flowerbed next year to grow some hollyhocks and also a few sunflowers. I miss not having them here at our new place.
