    Looks like you and I are both biding summer goodbye, Molly. May I capture your image poem for Abundant Autumn Gallery? It is the right size. I used one of your summer image poems for the Mini-Gallery I am sharing at PF tonight.

      With the odd swings in temperature, it’s been a lingering goodbye to summer here. The leaves are beginning to cover the lawn, but there are still quite a few blooms in my garden. Add temperatures in the high 70s and low 80s and it’s all quite confusing!
      You’re welcome to use this image poem in your gallery. Thanks for considering it and for asking! I’ll look forward to enjoying your mini-gallery later today.

  2. This is beautiful, Molly! I love the fuzzy blur of autumn colors behind the shapr beauty of the flowers. Your poem captures it perfectly:>)

  3. Really lovely, Molly. Is that possibly snow in the background? If not, the idea of it with the really light color adds to the goodbye to summer feeling. I miss summer so much. But, I am enjoying the first kinda crisp day here. Won’t mind autumn a bit!

    Those roses sure are surprising sometimes as they erupt amid the fall colors! Love it!

  7. Sorry to see those beach roses say goodbye, along with the rest of summer. We’re getting our first frost tonight, so I suppose autumn really is here, after all.
