The last days of Summer... .

Hello to all you fabulous Bloganistas... .  Here we are at the end of Summer and I want to share this pic with you -- '...tis the last Rose of Summer left blooming alone, all Her lovely companions are faded and gone... ."   Her name is "Montezuma" not necessarily as in His Revenge... .I planted Her in my front flower bed on the 30th of May this year and she has done quite well.  I look forward to seeing what she has to say next year.  The garden flowers and veggies have wound down for the season and look a wee bit shabby and tired, however, I have memories of the lovely flowers and veggies that I have enjoyed over the growing season.  I have become very domesticated these past couple of years and causes me time to think, hm!.. .  Out of my veggie patch I am left with a truck load of green tomatoes, so, in order to utilise every wee bit of the gardens products, I will be making a Green Tomato Relish this weekend  (first time for me - I have really become very industrious in  this aspect of the kitchen, heavens to murgatroid... .)  We are having a lovely spat of weather these past few days so let  us enjoy while the good days last.  We usually get our weather from west to east, so we'll see how long this lasts.
Halloween is coming up fast -- if you want to read about how Halloween was started/celebrated, go to my Blog for last year.  You will also be able to see some of the ceramic pieces I've made. 
Well ladies and gents, time to call it a day and say toodle pips, cheerio, au revoir, tar ra and all that jazz -- P.S. Buddy and Corey send their love.  Bye for now, Luv to all,, Elizabeth xox xox
