Sisterhood Stories – Leaving summer behind

We had our first chilly morning today. First time in months that I felt myself shivering, I almost had forgotten the feeling. We did have an exceptionally warm summer. My body was soaking up the sun like it would never get enough. I actually have a tan! Really.
But as much as I want it to stay, nature is turning the page again, bringing September and its cozy evenings and colorful landscape.

I haven’t been on this blog in a while, the need the write was superseded by the need to be outside and filling up on sunshine.

The warm weather was amazing for my garden, I have loads of veggies to pick and to eat, Yum! Fortunately I had only one zucchini plant, for I have a courgette overload.  Bags and bags of shredded goodness await in the freezer for all those breads, muffins and soups I plan to bake in the coming months.So, I guess that’s a good thing I expect from autumn, though I am definitely not ready to let my sunshine go..

Here are some photos that speak of this summer short-lived but oh! so beautiful. No particular storyline here, just random snippets that make my heart sing.

    Your pictures make my heart sing too – can’t believe we’re already facing Autumn – the Summer runs away too fast, but it’s good to see we both managed some canoeing this holiday! Love the underwater pic- I’ve used a GoPro for those – but haven’t had time to even look at mine. Looking forward to reading your posts as the evenings draw in xxx

      Thank you Boo! I took my MarkII underwater, in a waterproof bag, after a trial with my older camera who has some issues not worth fixing 🙂 I had a lot of fun!

    Dear Isabelle, maybe you know that I am an Autumn person. As much as I love to swim in the sea, I find it very difficult to enjoy the (other) nice things about Summer… yet your post has such a positive energy that you’ve actually made me reconsider my feeling for the season. It might not be my favorite, but it has its own beauties. Thank you for reminding me about them! xox

      Autumn is great too, but here, it’s just announcing the long cold winter, so it loses its magic fast 🙂 Thank you Elena xox
