Colder Nights

I don't do any seasonal decorating any more, as you can tell from the total absence of any pumpkin pictures on my blog, but Mother Nature certainly switches up the look around here.  The colder nights always start painting the Hydrangea blooms lavender and eventually a deep burgundy color. Even when they have been baked and faded by the Summer sun, they still put on their Autumn show.  I never dead-head it until there is nothing left except the skeletons because I adore watching the colors change!
No blog-worthy junking hauls lately, which is probably a good thing, but I have been busy working on my "Pay it Forward" projects, at long last.  I have them all packed up to go in the mail tomorrow and will show what I made sometime next week.
They say the first big rain of the season is on the way.  I have snugly new house socks and I am ready for some cozy.

Sounds great Kathy, I'm ready for some cozy too for sure! I'll be posting photos soon of my sister's and my new antique mall space at The Vintage Industry. So much fun. Can't wait for you to dip your toe in.

Your beautiful hydrangeas are definitely blog worthy. Drooling over here!! We might just get a sprinkling by tomorrow too, finally!

Hydrangeas are my favorite flower. They are beautiful all summer and then you can dry the blossoms. I hope you have a wonderful week! Sweet hugs, Diane

Well, I try not to covet thing possessions of others, but I have definite hydrangea envy. With our inability to water due to the drought, my hydrangeas are all a bunch of sick puppies.

Oh that reminds me I have to do my Pay It Forwards too! Yikes! Thanks for the reminder Kathy!
