Luckily I decided to do a quick walk around our property this week…right before the hard frost hit.
I rescued quite a few pretty dahlias.
They are brightening up my house right now, as we speak.
SuperGuy pulled the bulbs right after this, so hopefully we’ll have lots more next year. (I’m so not ready for winter…)
Oh, and a gratuitous, cute puppy pic. Jack. With his half blue eye.
I love summer. I love the pretty flowers lining my front porch. This year we have shorter sunflowers than last year, and some pretty dahlias and mums.
I love the way they brighten up the front of our home.
I don’t think a woman can ever have enough pretty flowers!
I love sitting in our red adirondack chairs on the front porch and just enjoying the summer evenings.
Yes, I love my home, why do you ask??
Oh, here were the sunflowers from last year. Very pretty, but fell over right after this and browned out.
I am so excited! I am finally, finally holding a copy of my book. In my hands. It’s real.
There is a chance that I cried when I opened the box and saw my beautiful book. Just a chance…
There is a chance that SuperGuy laughed at me, but broke open a bottle of champagne to celebrate…
And there is also a good chance that I told SuperGuy that I was going to tuck the book under my pillow and sleep with it.
If you’re a paperback reader type person, the book is now available in paperback, too: THE SHOP ON MAIN
Sigh. Dreams really do come true.
