In Between Seasons


As I sat on the front porch making campaign calls, I couldn’t help but feel that I was halfway between the seasons of summer and fall.

Meanwhile, I’m definitely at the height of campaign season!  51 Days!

Looking forward to visiting your blogs today 🙂

  1. Laurie, what a truly unique perspective you captured here. I LOVE the lines and the simplicity of this image. What draws my eyes are the fallen leaves on the table, then the bars and then the flower in the pot. Truly gorgeous!! ❤

    • Thank you, Amy, for the love and generous comment!
      I didn’t originally intend to make the bars as much a part of the image, but I, too, liked the way they looked.
      I’m really glad I was out there making calls as it made me realize that with colder temps tonight, those delicate blooms on the violet might not last.

  2. I can totally relate to the picture, Laurie, as I’ve just come back from the hairdresser’s. As long as I keep everything colorful up top, maybe no one will see all the wilting down below, right?
    Take your daily shot of Miracle Grow. You’ll need it now more than ever for the homestretch push.

    • What a great analogy to hair!! I had to do a campaign photo shoot last week … the day BEFORE my appointment at the hairdresser. We’ll be needing a little photoshop to cover up the grey 🙂

      • My father’s campaigns at this point in the race were like runaway steam engines with so much movement and energy the days would just seem to run together. I send you energy, light, hope, promise, abundant opportunities and the well-wishes of every constituent that holds a voting card!

    • Thanks Joe … as I sat there on the phone, I thought about the delicacy of those blooms surrounded by those fallen leaves. It hardly seems like it’s time for fall.
      I’m heading off to your blogs in a few minutes 🙂

    • Yes we are!
      and about the violet: Several years ago, a friend gave me the African Violet, and it never bloomed after the initial flowers died. I split it into 4 plants and it still didn’t bloom … until this year!! All 4 plants bloomed and I was so happy. Then I put this one on the new porch and it bloomed again!
      I clearly have more to learn but these violets have made me happy this spring and summer.
      Of course, the violet is now safely inside as the temps are going to drop significantly over night!
      Have you grown them?

      • Yes, I’ve had them off and on and have 1 now. It’s blooms are blue and white and come twice a year. pretty much if they have the right light they tick along happily.

  3. I’m wishing you all the best, LB. You have the enthusiasm and stamina to make a difference. Good Luck! Can’t wait to here the updates.

  4. In the midst of it all, you find time to blog and respond to commenters. You are one remarkable woman. Love the African Violet, and it’s a reminder that I can start accumulating plants now that I have a ginormous house to put them in.

    I’ll be sending love and inspiration, and good, long, restful sleep vibes your way. ❤ ❤ ❤

  5. I was under the impression that your summer lasted way longer? All our leaves are gold here and the nights way cooler. Today was beautiful, sunny and 19C or 66F. Perfect for me, I love it! Poor Pauline and Alys darn near froze in Washington I’m sure, but I loved it. I feel way more energetic in cooler weather. Plus the A/C doesn’t have to run, so we save $$. Have you been out on your new porch all summer? You’re words fit your image so perfectly, in-between. xo k

Because Boomdee dared me: Lay a little sugar on me :-)
