Last Indian Summer Day

Posted by Picasa
Yesterday was I fear, the last of our random Indian Summer days.
It was phenomenal and the late afternoon light truly my most favorite.
I'm sorry to see them end but winter has to come before Spring can and we all KNOW how much we NEED to see Spring again !

Beautiful snail, and lovely words. :)

I fear that Indian Summer has departed from here too. It has blown all day. Then the rain started tonight. It is to be cold now. It was nice while it lasted.

Barbee' said...

Oh, yes, that light. I am so glad to know someone else who "sees" it and values it.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

That's a cute snail, I'd let it stay in my garden. It doesn't look like it would eat my Dahlias in the spring. I'm hoping we get to see a day or two of sun before it's spring here.

Northern Beauty Seeker said...

I think I would have to let such a cute snail live there too!

I am ready for winter - as long as it is not a crazy cold one!

Carrie said...

I'm ignoring Winter!! It isn' happening, I am being very stubborn about that!

You will never believe me (I must try to get a photograph) but I saw another Winthrop 5 mins walk from my house, this one lives on top of a porch roof - an Irish cousin!!

tina said...

Phenomenal is the right word for wonderful late 'summer like' days in fall. Gotta love them!

CiNdEe said...

I can't wait till Spring! I hope Winter is not to bad for you this year!!!

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Hi there Cindee girl .. A friend mentioned that our winter forecast said it would be a mild light one .. so here is hoping for the best too ? !

Carrie girl .. I am going to ignore as much of it as possible too : ) OMG !!! an Irish Winthrop cousin would be too amazing girl !!
But hey .. we both know my last name is an Irish one anyways so he HAS to be related eh ? LOL

Rebecca .. were you having one of those days girl ? LOL I have been there many times too .. no worries ! : )

Barbee' there is something so special about that kind of light I can't even begin to describe how it looks and feels to me .. I am glad you know it too girl : )

Lisa it is a sad day when you really know that is the end of them .. we have flurries predicted for Saturday .. "it" is coming and there is no way of getting around it ? LOL

Catherine .. this snail is a keeper .. it weighs so much it can't get far without me noticing ? LOL .. I think we will have a few sun days but not like this one again .. BIG sigh !

Ms. S We are hoping for the "mild" one that has been predicted .. fingers crossed it will be just enough snow to quench the garden but not heaps on top of us ? LOL

Tina .. it was an amazing day and I tried to absorb as much of it as possible to keep a glow inside of me ? : ) .. well, for as long as possible ??

Tatyana@MySecretGarden said...

If you'll have more sunny days, I am packing and moving to Canada! I need sun!!!!!

I love winter, and I'll bet you can find some breathtaking winter shots in your garden, Joyful! We've had spectacular weather here on the east coast too, and even though it's rainy today with more in the forecast, it's unseasonably mild. It will really help shorten the winter. :)

our friend Ben said...

Good luck, Joy!!! We're also hoping for a mild, comparatively dry winter, despite predictions to the contrary. Tell Winthrop and WG to get busy trying to hex the weather into behaving itself!!!

Rebecca @ In The Garden said...

LOL! Yes, I was having one of those days. I figure it's better to post twice than not at all. ;)

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Tatyana .. this is a very rare prolonged ? Indian summer .. and the ironic part is that October was terrible .. of course it would have to be that way being my favorite month of the year right ? No worries .. I think our time is done in the sun .. stay put girl ! LOL

'ben" I have been complaining on a daily basis to both of them about keeping the winter at bay .. now whether ? they listen to me is another matter altogether ! haha

Nancy I think this does really shorten our perspective of how long a winter we suffer through. When it starts early like say end October .. it is a LONG winter .. but having no snow yet, this is weird and wacky : )

LOL ... Rebecca girl !! .. I thought that was a hoot .. feel free to post as often as you want ! LOL

VW said...

We've had some milder weather this week as well. It's a nice break from that crispy-cold that hits me every time I open my door in winter. Here's hoping that winter isn't too bad this year.

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Hey there VW .. lets hope it will be a short winter is too right for me. I feel like I missed the whole season when things were just too busy here with the deck and shed and this and that ? LOL .. I didn't feel as connected to my garden as I usually do .. so fingers crossed : )

Tessa at Blunders with shoots, blossoms 'n roots said...

Oh, and how you kept me rolling with laughter last winter! I look forward to your antics :). And now that I've moved to a much cccolder climate myself, I'm sure I may in fact find myself going a little loony too! What was the number to the funny farm again?

I do have to admit that I'm the odd man (or woman) out here- I love winter! I love snow (as long as the sun comes out after the storm!). I am also looking forward to the challenge of 4 season growing!

Can you remind me I said all this?

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Tessa I was just over at your place and saw those gorgeous pictures of where you live now .. it is awesome girl !!
And YES !! I will remind you constantly that you are loving the snow and the proper 4 seasons bit to our garden years .. haha
I'm hoping cabin fever won't be too bad this time but you never know .. I already saw some seeds I like, but I'm holding strong .. for now ? LOL
