~SEPTEMBER SONG ~
September... and unpacking my Autumn pretties...signals shorter and shorter day..
Autumn is my favorite time of the year. I am not even sure why. My birthday is in the Fall? October. It turned very sad for me..but at the same time I love it so much. The rich colors...deep reds and golds..something... and my favorite song is "September Song." It was very last song my husband, Patrick and I ever danced to.
This is one of the things I love getting out each Autumn. An old Fitz and Floyd that most of you have probably already seen. The little quail salt and peppers are so sweet. Have you ever seen baby quail? The are no bigger than your thumb..adorable and SO fast!
This is an old wine barrel that I used to make a water feature on our patio. The rack the pump sits on was carefully built and bolted into place. See the little iron birds sitting nearby? The black eyed Susan vines will be beautiful next year. They are a new addition. Nothing fancy..but those old wine barrels are getting more and more difficult to find.
And the iron gate was purchased from a garage sale this past Saturday. I did have another shorter one there..but this works much better for what I am planning. The blinds will be changed out next Spring for white ones...lots of plans.. :) Lots!
We still have 17 days of Summer and look at us. We are still burning here in California...it is still miserably hot..although today it was degrees cooler..
and here we are at Labor Day weekend. We noticed today that it was beginning to get dark earlier. :)
Enjoy this beautiful Saturday. I am off early in the morning to hit the garage sales!
Love and hugs..
