Last of the Harvest

It's the last vegetable harvest this season from my container garden. It was a bit chilly last night, so the only thing left outside are my herbs.
* * *
It looks like the Hummingbirds are getting ready to fly south.... I hate to see summer go....
The little songs of summer are all gone today.
The little insect instruments are all packed away:
The bumblebee's snare drum, the grasshopper's guitar,
The katydid's banjo, the cricket's violin,
The dragonfly's cello have ceased their merry din.
Oh, where is the orchestra?  From harpist down to drummer
They've all disappeared with the passing of the summer.

Check out my friend Andrea's fantastic give-away on her blog here.
Head on over there and leave her a comment.

  2. Oh what pretty peppers!
    I too hate seeing the warm seasons turn into not so warm.
    Glad you got a bike ride in:D

  9. Wonderful, still bright with color. We just picked our last bell pepper, egg plant and zucchini.We still have plenty of tomatoes, green onions and strawberries though. I will miss our beautiful garden.


  10. These your pictures are amazing , you did such a good harvest, many compliments !!!!!!!!!

  11. Liebe Heidi
    Wow.... wunderschön! Bei Dir findet man nochmals den Sommer. Ich vermisse ihn schon jetzt ein bisschen und freue mich auf den Frühling. Ich habe die dunkle, kalte Jahreszeit nicht so gerne. Ich bin einen "Sonnenkind", vielleicht weil ich im Sommer geboren wurde.
    Vielen Dank für Deinen lieben Kommentar auf meinem Blog. Es war wirklich super in Berlin! In meinem nächsten Post gibt's ganz viele Bilder davon!
    Eine wunderschöne Restwoche wünsche ich Dir und schicke Dir ganz viele liebe Grüsse aus der Schweiz.
    Herzlichst Yvonne
