A Brief Encounter


We've had spells of wonderful cool evenings.
The kind of weather, that begs you to spend the last few hours of the day, enjoying the outdoors.
The days are noticeably shorter, the flowers are sharing their last blooms, the birds are retiring early to their nests.
Mother Nature's way of slowing down.
The mosquitoes however are in abundance.


Early morning the Morning Glories are in bloom, by evening their brief  life is over.

Yes fall is close. I really admire you morning glories. The color is so great and you have a successful growth pattern going there.

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog today! I have to tell you that 2 weeks ago I accidently deleted all my favorite blogs to the right when I was "messing around" adding someone. I reconstructed it by somewhat memory knowing I wouldn't remember all. I went ahead and added some new people.
Today - I checked and you weren't there so I put you back where you belong!!!!

I just heard someone from Minnesota say today that the mosquito was the state bird!:) They have caused problems for some areas this summer!:(

The Morning Glories are beautiful!
