Autumn is right around the corner......


This little box was finished this morning. I am feeling like autumn is almost here! Boy, it will be nice to feel those cool nights and breezes. Can't wait to feel that crispness in the air! My yard and gardens are a complete disaster because it has been too hot and too humid to work out there! I guess my age has something to do with that but I am hard pressed to admit that to myself!..
I am still fighting and scratching chigger bites I got while helping my son and daughter-in-law in their new overgrown yard. That was over three weeks ago. The thought of more bites and ticks has also kept me out of the weeds and woods in the back. As soon as it cools down, I plan to spend many an evening cleaning up the mess to get ready for winter........ Posted by Picasa

Your summer sounds like mine! I, too, am loaded with itchy red bites on my arms and legs. I love autumn..so I'm also looking forward to the cooler weather and the gorgeous coloring of the leaves.

And speaking of leaves...this collage piece is absolutely GORGEOUS! What a beautiful representation of the fall season!! I love it!
