7 Quick Takes: The I'm Trying to Find Signs of Summer Edition

The high today is only supposed to be 71.  And it's cloudy.

 It's may be the middle of August here in North Carolina but it sure feels like the end of September to me.

And I don't like it. Not one bit.

So I went outside to see if I could find anything to remind me that it's still summer and here are the seven things I found.  (Take my word for it that there are seven.  I was having a horrible time trying to get these pictures numbered so I put myself out of my misery and said, "Oh, just forget the numbers!")



The rose bush is still blooming.

The sunflowers are finally blooming.  And we have lots of bumble bees buzzing around.
The Black-Eyed Susans still look pretty.

The vines may be dieing but we still have lots of delicious tomatoes!


The pumpkin vine blooms every morning.  But then the blooms die so looks like we will be buying our pumpkin from the store this year.  The yellow blooms are still so pretty to look at each day.

Our watermelon vine has one melon on it.  It's tiny but it's so cute!  Not sure it will be edible but I enjoy checking on it to see if it's grown.

It's 11:00 and someone is just now getting around to having breakfast after rolling out of bed at 10:00.
Head on over to Conversion Diary to see what everyone else is Quick Taking about today!
