I know, I know, we’re already a month into autumn.  But, it’s still been feeling “summerish” around here, though not for long.  Next week’s forecast looks to be bringing on some cooler temps and a bit of wet weather.  Oh well.

Anyway, I thought I’d do a little recap of summer at the createaerie.  I’ve been out of touch with blogging since the spring and thought it’s about time I make an appearance.  This happens every year.  My gardening season begins, and I drop blogging by the wayside.  So typical.

Who wouldn’t want to start their summer off with observing the emergence of a Cecropia Moth from its cocoon?  What a magical experience.

Not long after, a mama wren took residence in this house and gifted me a little chirping choir of babies.  Same time next year?  I sure do hope so.

May, June and July were busting out all over with punches of color everywhere in my yard.  I was a happy gal.


And, as summer progressed, bees and butterflies were doing what they do best – pollinating!


This potted combo was probably my favorite of all my personal container plantings this season.  I’m especially a sucker for floral splashes of orange; however, I really don’t turn my back on any blooming face.  I love them all!

Well, I hope you enjoyed this better-late-than-never summer stroll of my garden.  And, while I let it prepare to bid good riddance to the growing season, I will be preparing for some upcoming holiday craft fairs.  I can’t wait to show you what I’ve got brewing.

Stay tuned…..
