Sum it up Sunday

It seems like the Summer has gone by in a flash. We are finally getting some hot weather. My vegetable garden is starting to look a bit ravaged as our tomatoes are coming on faster than we can eat them. Snap pea season is over and my vines are all brown. My yellow squash vines are also drying up after producing a bumper crop this year. What once was full of promise and anticipation is turning to melancholy and dread.

Less than two weeks till Back to School. I am not ready for Fall!!!

Took the boys for a quick dip at our neighborhood pool tonight. We then came home and I made some Bruschetta / French Bread Pizza with some over-ripe (rotting) tomatoes, basil & mozzarella. Yum!

I was hoping to take some garden photos today but I was uninspired. I think I will post a few of my favorites that I have on my photo blog ( Drive by Shooting).

Summer? Yes, we're finally getting the hot weather, JUST IN TIME FOR SCHOOL TO START! It seems "we just got started and now it's over" (the Carol Burnett theme is playing in my mind). The oldest starts Thursday and the youngest starts five days later. Where did it go.
BTW, your photos are gorgeous!

I too am not looking forward to saying goodbye to a summer that just now seems to have arrived. I'm dreading back to school and the arrival of fall.

I'm feeling the same melancholy. I'm not ready to say goodbye to summer.

Your photos are gorgeous! I love the bee shots.

Great pictures!

I am not ready for summer to end either. The kids go back on Monday and I work at their school and have to go back TOMORROW. Ugh.
