Monday Mosaic - Putting Away the Patio Umbrella



Umbrella Photo by Phillip Newton

I love this vintage inspired woman carrying a patio umbrella....of course my patio umbrella doesn't look as lovely, but it's that time of the year in our neck of the woods to start thinking of putting summer away to start enjoying fall's splendor .


The asters are in full bloom, the heavier mists now hang over the lake reminding me that our days will have warmth. The nights are cooler than the temperature of the lake, and we had our first frost at our cabin.

I'm joining "Mosaic Monday" hosted by http://dearlittleredhouse.blogspot.com/ You can check out Mary's lovely mosaic and the other blogs that are participating.

The leaves are showing signs of change, so you can probably guess what my end of September mosaic will be.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

  16. Hard to think that this is the last full day of summer and it is time to put everything away...time flies.

    Your umbrella girl is a sweet photo but the misty scenes you have been sharing at the cottage are just my faves! It must be so serene to spend an early morning just sitting there and watching the mist rise and hearing the sounds of nature around you. A beautiful mosaic!! Love the monarch and caterpillar too :)

  19. Thank you everyone! I was trying to visit all the wonderful blogs that participated, but my mom has been in the hospital, and I have been short on time. I do appreciate your visit!

    Marsha, the kale takes on a mellow flavor in soup. I don't use too much, just enough :-)
