Today I’m prolonging the last days of summer.

Even though it’s officially fall, one of the touches I love bringing into my kitchen is displaying the fruits of the season.

Simple and elegant.

I recently canned peaches with my friend (a post to come in my 31 Days series) and we left a few out for “eating.”

Even though they don’t last long on the counter, they are so beautiful.

Peach season is coming to an end and we’re moving on to apples and pears.

Are you a lover of summer like I am, and do you ever feel melancholy as the season draws to a close?

(I hope you’ll join me for 31 Days of Warm Connections coming Oct. 1. Here are the winners to my Balcony Girls 2 eBook post: Sheila, Ann (no blog), Debbie, and Kathy.)
