Me too! I predicted to my family at supper time last night that I believe we will have an early cold winter here...we shall see. Hope all is well with you girlie!!

RURAL magazine said...

Yes, I am looking forward to seeing something other then brown

And cooler temps.

Joy, do you say about fall? I like it too but the autumn here is very short and so is the time of colours.

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

You must be getting excited with all the stores filling up with Fall and Halloween items.

Christine said...

And such beautiful colors they are! I know the fall colors are a ways away, Joy, but your photos right now are just stunning! I love your garden(s). :)

Lisa at Greenbow said...

Me too. Love this color combo.

Pat said...

Nice. Looking foward to fall. Too hot here, not outside much.

So come on... even the fairies can't win. One more show. Hope they kill off some of the new people. Maybe kill the writers :)

Rose said...

Me, too! That's a gorgeous Japanese maple, Joy.

It has been so much cooler here the past two weeks that it almost feels like fall.


Joy, I clicked on your blog then got distracted with something. When I looked back at your banner photo, I thought I had clicked onto a nursery site! Your banner photos are always stellar but I don't remember seeing a series of photos, especially like this.

I'm not ready for fall yet. I hate the idea of summer being over. But I get where you're coming from.

I am really noticing a change in the sunlight. It is softer and more golden. When the leaves start to turn the sun has a way of making everything glow.

Nadezda said...

Joy, so pretty colors are in your garden: silver, dark green, brown, gray!

Hi Joy girl,
it seems to me, you long for the Indian Summer, eh?
I enjoy our few summerdays and - sorry - I'm soo lazy! I'll mail later!But tomorrow after work, we'll drive to 'our' island.
Have a nice WE!!

Take care, girl!

I wish we'd always have spring and summertime...It's so cold and dark here in Finland in the autumn and winter...

Hello Darla girl : )
The light is changing quickly but our days are still fairly warm .. I love the cool evenings and mornings though .. I would like Autumn to last long enough for me to have fun with it!LOL

Jen girl we too suffer from brown grass malaise .. but then we also have the Susans so that helps : )

Nadezda it seems our Autumns are much shorter too .. as our Springs have become .. it is too bad, since they are my favorite times of year.

Linda girl YES ! I saw Home Sense very quickly and it made me smile BIG time : )

Christine girl hello there and thank you so much .. I am too happy to have Autumn coming with her cooler breath and pretty party dress ;-)

Lisa girl thank you and I think almost all of us are agreeing on the need for change from that horrible heat and drought phase!

LOL Patsi girl !! you are too funny .. there will be a war and who wins is anyone`s guess eh .. hope it makes it one more season with some decent writers !!!

Rose girl thank you and I really enjoyed seeing all of your gorgeous pictures .. you have a lot going on there still !

Gracie I think you are the only one hating to see summer go .. but I understand that because you waited so long for it to arrive .. thank you so much girl! I had a great teacher give me directions on how to get my header out of my A** !LOL

Jennifer I know exactly what you mean .. the light is beautiful this time of year and it makes everything glow a very special way:)

Nadezda thank you so much .. I am in love with that rose of yours .. what is it!!!

Meggie girl just have a nice time on your island and enjoy yourself!
Indian summer with full bold yellow moons is a wonderful time .. I hope it actually happens!

Hello Sadun and Satu : ) I can understand how you feel .. it seemed that way for us in the Netherlands when we lived there .. we can`t always count on a nice Fall and Spring but we can always HOPE ! LOL

RobinL said...

Even I think that fall will be a welcome change. It's been hot, hot, and hot and oh so dry! I'm tired of watering my containers, that's for sure.

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Robin girl me too ! I love the cooler evenings and mornings : ) .. I have to get over to your place !

RPS77 said...

A few trees and bushes around here are already getting a hint of color, but it will be more than a month before things really start to get colorful.

CanadianGardenJoy said...

Hello RP : )
Yes .. a little more time yet .. but my Japanese maples seem to be trying to tell me something .. maybe just that they are grateful I have kept watering them ? LOL
