I went back to look at the posting I wrote about the end of summer last year, and I am going to sound like a broken record: Wasn’t it just a couple of days ago we were at the Biltmore for the unveiling of the International Rose Trials winners?
|Miracle on the Hudson took top honors at beautiful Biltmore|
Then wasn’t it just yesterday we headed out on a 10-day road trip in early June that took us to Williamsburg, Virginia Beach, Cambridge, MD, Longwood Gardens and DC?

|I always feel like somebody's watching me|
So what happened to the rest of the summer and how come next weekend ushers in Labor Day?
Well, I don’t have any answers. Once again summer seems to have evaporated.
|My roses were spectacular (if I do say so myself)|
But at least I have some wonderful photographs to remind me of the time that seemed to go by as a blur.
Enjoy my summer snapshots and join me in savoring the final days before we feel a nip in the air.
Because I am certainly not ready for mums, pumpkins and black cats.
|Gorgeous wildflowers everywhere|
|Bees were wild about the 86-bloom spray of Lyda rose|
|Our hydrangeas died to the ground but these Annabelles survived|
|The view from the mountaintop garden was just as spectacular|
|Golf was good|
|Goodbye summer :(|
