a second summer





Ah, the deck.  Won't you join me today?  It's warm this weekend.  Hot in fact.  I don't think I'll need the blanket except may in the evening.  It's perfect early fall weather to enjoy the deck or porch or patio in our area this weekend.  It's going to be about 27C (80F) - which is rare for us this late in the season.   We are having our second summer and I'm loving it! 

I got out some cushions from inside and a couple of blankets just in case the day or evening is chilly.  We can have some hot tea, and a cookie or three, and chat about our week, you and me.


I found some old kitchen pots that had seen better days and decided to use them for my mum plants.

The pumpkins are real and faux.  Can you tell which is which?


I hope you will have a chance to enjoy the beautiful outdoors this weekend.  Perhaps sit on your deck, porch, patio or even just in a park.   Get out and pick some apples, enjoy the fall colours, pick a pumpkin, go for a walk.  I hope to do some of the above.  The leaves are changing faster each day.  I can't believe the difference every morning.  Have you noticed that too?  Peak colour will be soon.

A big welcome to my new followers.  Thanks for visiting and your kind comments.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Blessings,
Pam

  4. Your new header is nice and so is your deck. Looks so beautifully fallish and it's hard to believe it's so warm there. No leaf changing here--it won't happen probably for another month but our weather has gotten a tad cooler. Have a nice weekend.

  5. Sounds and looks so inviting Pamela...your deck is gorgeous and would I ever love to be sitting there and sharing a pot of tea and an afternoon together and to finally have a chance to meet each other. Maybe someday when you are in Maine again we'll get that chance. The weather here in Maine has been awesome too....all weekend coming up it is supposed to be close to 80 degrees...just like summer again. These are the days I am soooooo thankful for and know when it starts snowing again soon that it's only a short time before the season will change once again. Hugs

  6. Your new deck is the perfect place to enjoy those pretty views, Pamela! My goodness, 27°C, on the Atlantic coast; a second summer, and a hot one, at that! We had a high of 31°C here in the Med yesterday, and are still in our first summer, with no real changes, except for a few showers expected this week. We certainly won't have the pleasure of all that spectacular fall foliage!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  15. Your fall scene on and from the deck is so pretty. Love the plaid throw and the mums in the old pots. It's hot here too so we are going on a "summer" picnic!

  16. Cozy and so welcoming Pam! We have had a second summer also, but coming to a halt I'm afraid. Rainy today and suppose to cool down immensely. Love your plaid throw! I have red ones, but have been looking for one in Fall colors. Everything is so inviting and I love the Mum in the red and white enamelware. I have a collection of that in my Farmhouse basement kitchen.
    hugs,

  30. Your deck looks beautiful, Pamela! We've had a warm fall so far, and continued frequent rain. I wonder if all this moisture means a very snowy winter? I better stock up on some good books ito read n case that happens :)

  31. I am certainly a Pink person as my favorite color, even before it became chic, but I do love the autumn colors. Your new patio looks so inviting and restful, warm blankest with warm colors. I love your new header, too.
