I don't know. Summer didn't really start here in the Colorado mountains until June - and now it's clearly on it's way out. We'll cross our fingers that we'll have an Indian Summer!

Happy day to you, Koralee!

Melanie's Randomness said...

Seriously. Yeah it kinda evaporated!! I'll be back to read people's comments because I don't know where it went either!

Party Box Design said...

seriously?!? HOWEVER, I am sooooo ready for fall!

Celestial Charms said...

Yep, it is a bit of a downer, but I'm excited about Autumn and all the holidays that are just down the road. Happy Tuesday!

I'm actually glad it went by quickly this year. Summer is just the season we "get through" here in Phoenix so that we can enjoy our 9 months of beautiful weather. I say bring on fall!

A Hopeful Heart said...

I'm wondering the same thing. Here in the Mountain West, it didn't even get warm until the first week of June. And the weather turned cold the first week of October last year, so we had 8 long months of cold, gray, windy weather. I, for one, would be happy if summer stuck around for several more months.

Blessings,
Patti

Lisa said...

a huge wind storm blew in last week and took it away.... it's not here either... `:o(

Tina Eudora said...

Love and hugs....Tina xo

Carol said...

Summer.. a time to treasure!! Now...I love the crisp mornings of fall....and the hopes of a nice warm afternoon....then cozy down for a cool night!! I do like fall...time for those wonderful sweaters and scarves!! And for you...those bright, expectant faces of students, right!

Laura @ 52 FLEA said...

I'm hanging onto the last threads of summer...just love the cool evenings and warm days now in the mountains!
Love the pic!

Vintage Home said...

,,,yeah Patti......here in the Pacific Northwest we have stunning Falls!
And I know Koralee....like every season... will treat us to amazing pictures of it...
Until till then.....I remember when the kids where younger the longer summer was I got to be on "holidays" with them!....
Koralee I love the yarrow yellow!...a splash of sunshine preparing us for the amber of fall.....

Randi Troxell said...

and i am STILL trying to figure that one out!!! the nights and evenings are already cooler (which IS nice).. but it means fall is coming... i miss summer when it's gone!

Silver Strands said...

Indeed! That's my question as well. Though when I look back the past 3 months, I really can't believe we were able to cram so much into so little time.
Have a great day.

Barbara said...

Gone way too fast, Koralee! And I spent half of it in a cast!

bellaboo said...

Summer is holding on here.Today I saw a dragonfly,and there's not a cloud in the sky.Will it last for our holiday?? Hope so! :o)

Vivre Le Jour said...

Summer..weather wise it is clinging fiercely by day and fading away with the cooler nights. But I think our hearts are ready for autumn, harvest and bliss of a beloved season.


Thank you for coming by, friend!

BEAR's Mom said...

JULY was blistering hot here in PA ~ so the majority of things that we would've done outdoors we didn't do...stayed in the AC...
I'm ready for the fall...however it looks like we're having another week of 90's again...and expecting some rain by Thursday from the hurricane coming up the coast.
I love the fall...the colors, the fresh air, everything about it :D

Tamara Nicole said...

Blondie's Journal said...

Terra said...

I don't know. Summer may last for another month here, going by temperature and not calendar date. What kind of flower is that? I would like to plant one.

My Blessed Serendipity Life said...

I'm hanging onto it as long as I can but Fall is coming regardless.

The Garden Bell said...

Boo-Hoo. I know, just where did it go? Way too fast is all I know. It's in the air here for sure. Let the negotiating begin.

~*~ saskia ~*~ said...

Unfortunately that's true, Summer is almost closing. I'm hooked on Fall though. Happy first of September tomorrow, sweet friend. xxooxx

Teresa said...

What SUMMER my dear?
This past summer has been like SUMMER that I have never~ever known!
Usually I spend the summers at "The Country!"
That's what we call the homestead...my parent's farm!
We spend our summers walking with the dogs down the dirt road...
playing in the creeks,
tye~dying...eating fresh veggies...SWIMMING...SWIMMING....and SWIMMING!
I haven't been in a pool or in a bathing suit all summer!
WHAT?!!!!!
So I am wondering.
Where is SUMMER!?
xoxoxoxo

pollydove said...

Boy, I agree ... where oh where did summer go? Usually it feels like forever before the kids go back to school - this year, it seems like they just got out for summer break!

I love how you did your words on the image ... so clever. Maybe you should hold online classes! xo

Claudie said...

Sorry to hurt your feelings, but it's still smokin' hot here in Ontario. It's going up to 85 today. So.... that's why I will say bye bye and go jump in the pool lol
Love Ya

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

PJMCNeal said...

I think that this year, Summer was on a Thursday! It was so short, we travelled so much, and jsut this morning realized it had picked up its pretty pastel sandals, the suntan lotion, and ..........left! I am so glad there is another one coming up on the horizon next year! Nice photo and question, Koralee. Love Aunt P.

Martha said...

that is exactly what I thought this morning...exactly...

Tricia - A Rosy Note said...

I don't know where it went! I'm sure sad that it is leaving us though.

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Koralee,

Well it is officially the first day of Spring here today! so I think the summer must be getting ready to come down under.
I can't believe how fast the year is going.

Hope that you are having a lovely week
Hugs

Creative Carmelina said...

IT CAME AND WENT like a much anticipated meal that was long toiled over in it's creation....and devoured on the spot due to hearty appetites and famine!

great photo!

reminds me of my country farm!

ciao bella!

Marilyn said...

I have wondered that same thing. Maybe it will come back for an encore appearance. Let's hope. It was all too short here in the Pacific Northwest.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I think it just melted away...

birdie blue said...

Susan said...

Oh, my sweet friend, I am asking myself the same question! I've enjoyed the most wonderful summer, but alas, the school bell rings! Wishing you a FABulous new year, and blessings too many to count! Oh, I do love fall, but summer sure did zoom zoom zooooooooooooooooom!
My class is mostly boys this year, just one girl! I wonder if my new kiddos will sleep well tonight! I just hope I'm able to get up on time!
I will miss getting up at my leisure most of all!
First day of the new school year here I come!:)
Blessings!

Kathy's Red Door Welcome said...

Summer just whizzed by, didn't it? I'm ready for fall though.

angela said...

I know! I can't believe it. I spent this summer (until August 6th) taking summer courses, and suddenly it's gone. The recent fall weather feels refreshing as do seasonal changes. But.. it is sad. So long, summer. <3

June said...

I don't know Koralee, but when you find it will you send it back to me????????
hugs

Little Monarch said...

Rose said...

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
I KNOW!!!
What happened to our vaca?
well... I spent several hours today at school setting things up.
Thanks to Amanda's help, it took me a lot less time this year. Amanda's visiting and her help is priceless! She's such a wonderful teacher.
I'll be back at school to get more done before the students come next week.

Summer here was hot and very humid... so very humid. I'm definitely looking forward to autumn temperatures.

Your photo today is beautiful, Koralee~
love it~
Have a sweet day!
♥ Maria

shopgirl said...

This post is sweet. I think summer is still hanging around here in southern Italy. I hope anyways. :-)))

I wish you a wonderful day Koralee!

Miles Of Style said...

Glenys said...

Thanks! I like your blog too.

Martina said...

Aw, Koralee - that's what i'm asking myself every day now. Feels so like autumn here already, and i MISS the sun! Let's still have a lovely day though ;) xx

*Ingrid* said...

Hey Koralee thank you for your beautiful flowers!!!

Not Just a Waitress said...

It was a lovely summer, but as always, gone too fast. Although, I was making a list of reasons that Fall could possibly become my new favorite season (I'd share a few, but I think I'll BLOG ABOUT IT!!) :)
Today I played field hockey with the girls at my high school alma mater. F.H. feels like fall...but it was 97 DEGREES!! Talk about a resurgence of summer weather!!!
I hope you have a wonderful fall and an amazing school year. :) BLESSINGS!!

NENSA MOON said...

Hi Koralee,

We're here in Indonesia only have 2 seasons... rainy and dry season.. so we can feel the sunshine along the year...

Love the yellow flowers!
Wishing you have a blessed day along the season!

ELK said...
