I'm back from our time up at the cottage and boy, do I have a lot of catching up to do. It seems that none of you stop blogging just because I'm away, and I have hundreds of posts to visit. Eventually.
None of these photos were posted before but you may find some of the items familiar, as they were photographed from different angles and used in previous posts.
To me, they represent some of the best of the summer season, as it now passes so quickly into autumn. Take a deep breath and enjoy some of the colourful summer offerings.
I have no idea what this pink, spiky pod is but it reminded me of a Koosh ball. It was a windy day, so the image isn't in great focus but I still liked the look.
I can't help but think of the late, great Erma Bombeck whenever I see a bowl of cherries. One of her humourous books was titled "If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What am I Doing in the Pits?"
Black-eyed Susans are always cheery to see on a late August stroll.
A maple leaf, glistens after a summer rain.
A coneflower, with it's beautiful deep pink petals
Another pod - milkweed this time.
And a bright yellow sunflower turns its shy face away from the camera.
