Tales of a British expat transplanted into the lush Tennessee countryside.

" When summer gathers up her robes of glory, and like a dream of beauty glides away. "
That was a pretty verse at the beginning this post. I wrote it down in my collection of verses that I like.You have so many flowers that are still pretty. The picture of the fawn was so sweet. Is that a crepe myrtle behind the swing? I have crepe myrtles that color in my front yard. My flowers are pretty much played out early this year. The weather would go from searing hot to pounding rain storms that would just beat my flowers down, and roast them the next day. And my reliable favorite ever blooming pink Knock Out rose which was huge and on one side at the front of my house and my great big Zephrine Drouhine rose that has such beautifully scented pink blooms at the other side of the front of the house have caught a rose disease that deforms many of the branches and blooms and turns the newest leaves twisted and red are going to have to be removed. They look like haunted house roses right now. After they are out, I will never be able to successfully grow roses there again. The soil is contaminated by the disease.Now we will move into Fall with its beautiful tree bouquets of jewel toned leaves; garnet, citrine, coral, and smokey quartz.
You have flowers that are showing off. I like the fence and deer shot. The sunset is wonderful and yes fall is here. The gardens all start to shut down or at least it is time for me to start to clear things away.
Your flowers are still gorgeous. I love the photo of the little deer and the one of the flower pot person sitting on the bench. Temps are a bit cooler there, although today is super nice. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
I always love your farewell to Summer and visiting with the muchadmired Mr.Flowerpot-Man. Looking forward to how Autumn will express itself in your blog. Doesn't TN lend itself beautifully to theseasons? I enjoy your palette of Great Britain impressions addedto the mix. If one must "Fall", this is the way to do it....
Such beautiful photos. Summer went quickly and now we have beautiful fall to live through.
Yes, as we say goodbye to summer, we can enjoy the Autumn ...I enjoyed seeing your selection of photographs, the flower=pot man made me smile :)All the best Jan
