Goodbye Summer






This is the last weekend of August. I can't believe that Summer is almost over...
too fast! The weather was gorgeous, so the greenmarket was very crowded but I enjoyed it. The veggies, fruits, flowers were fresh, beautiful and terrific smell. They're so inspiring me!

How was your Summer?

Hope you all enjoy the last weekend of August!

I feel like our summer is just getting started here. September is usually the hottest month of the year in L.A. plus we have "fire season" to look forward to in October.
Happy late summer, Natsumi!

Beautiful post as always. Although I do love autumn color, I remember I always felt so sentimental when summer was about to end when I used to live in Finland. Enjoy your autumn! Yanyan

Goodbye summer?!I believe in living summer all the way to the end (still 3 weeks to go or so!), and then waiting for summer during the winter months:)

can't believe summer is almost over! here it feels like fall already, the weather has become rather cold, the trees are becoming yellow and red.. I've had a lovely lovely summer, and it was incredibly warm as well, so I'm actually enjoying autumn right now!:)

gorgeous photos by the way!

Dorte said...

Gorgeous images, natsumi. I'm going to extend my summer a bit as I going to spend all of sept. in the south of europe.
Have a lovely sunday :)

Paris smells like fall too :) I love fall and I'm having my vacation in the fall, summer is like every year I spend it working so I'm really looking forward fall :)

My summer was so full of traveling and changes, hellos and goodbyes. Lovely just the same though.
Love those summery dots of colour.

beautiful summer to fall mood!
it's so hot in Japan, so here it feels like the summer is going strong, though slight hints of a fall breeze coming in...
happy summer memories from NY and seeing you! Glad it sounds like a beautiful weekend there, happy September soon...xo

I'm very sad to see summer go :(
Summer has a nicer colour than winter which is so dreary.
But I suppose you can't enjoy it without missing it a bit.

My summer was the best so far :D

Enjoy your last weekend too!

In Lisbon, Summer is still on and hot, sometimes too hot! So we live slowly and we drink a lot;) Happy week, dear Natsumi!

Françoise said...

Today feels like autumn here. I would like to have a few more summer days.
But I like autumn and I love the sunflowers...

Victoria said...

It feels like the fall arrived way too soon here today. Chilly, damp, showers and the occasional ray of weak sunshine. Summer is my fav time of year, but this year it seems to have passed by so fast. Lots of fun things, but a little difficult too with Luca's broken arm prevening us doing all the usual swimming and cycling we'd normally get up to. Love the colours of your photos today.

Ritva said...

dear natsumi,
haven´t been here for a while - now this is like the whole summer in a beautiful package here in your place!
thank you for that!
take care!

Claire said...

Oh yes, goodbye summer... It's raining a lot here and the temperature is already so cold!
Il love the colours of your drawing... It looks like Fall's colours!

Leslie said...

Here in Florida we have summer for at least eight more weeks! And we look forward to its end with great anticipation ; )

I hope to travel a bit further north sometime this fall to see a real autumn for a change. I still miss that season most of all from my midwestern youth.

Cabrizette said...

Yes I don't want this holiday to finish...

Camila F. said...

Summer is just around the bend in my part of the world. But the first days of Spring started with a bang of thunder rather than some sunshine. At least it's warmer though.
