So long, and thanks for all the fish

The signs are there. I can't deny it. I've seen you looking for your suitcases.

My tender flowers, nestled at the back entrance, I can see you are almost ready to go.

Dear flowers, I am delighted to say, you have all been great summer guests.

I hear from the weatherman that it's only a matter of days, or even hours. So as my toddler would say, "Bye bye flowers!" Please tell your relatives they are welcome to join us next year.

Knowing our flowers will be back next year does make the coming of winter a little more bearable.

It's always hard to see the end of the blooming season. Thank goodness for seed catalogs in January!

It seems like summer has just started, and now it is over. Well, lots of time to plan, who will be living with me next year.

I think it is sad to say goodbye to these blooming beauties but here in the fall, we are getting ready for huge planting of bulbs and spring annuals which are much larger in number than those summer bloomers.

I like the way you wrote this...it's a nice way of looking at things! I'm kind of having a hard time, myself, dealing with the fact that my flowers are on their 'last legs', so to speak:-( It's the circle of life, I know...but sometimes it's just hard to face!

It looks like still a lot of colour in your garden. Bring some indoors to enjoy!!
