Summer's Last Hurrah!

Hanne's Bouquet

Some of the flowers that have been displaying their beauty all Summer long are now struggling a bit and in need of care and attention; but the overall effect remains not bad at all. We strolled yesterday by two lakes, Okanagan Lake with its flamboyant displays, and Skaha Lake with its delicate wild flowers that Hanne picked for a bouquet. On the way home we bought some delicious juicy black plums from a fruit stand. Meanwhile today, Man United faces off against Chelsea in the Premiership, and World Rugby continues to demonstrate its skills, Gaddafi hunkers down somewhere, and Welsh miners mourn their lost comrades...

Such lovely photographs. It's all looking ever so beautiful, still. Nothing cheers the soul more than freshly picked wild flowers and sweetly fragrant fresh fruits.

Hanne's bouquet is gorgeous! Wish it would rest on my desk!

Such beautiful geraniums. Mine have had rather small flowers this summer, probably, because of all the rain. My favourites are the pale pink Dronning Ingrid, which I expect you know Hanne.
