Look. Quick! Before she disappears!
She’s flapping in the breeze, waving her farewell.
Didn’t she just rise up under the curve of that blue sky, wearing her welcome in tulips and lilacs?
And now, Earth tilts, and we keep spinning our orbit, and we remember all that Summer was. We grasp for a few bits of her warmth before we leave her on this side of the sun.
As for us?
We’re diving into summer a few more times before we altogether say goodbye.
So long, summer. We smile over you. For you’ve been good to us.

Jennifer, I found your blog on Angie Vik's site. This is a beautiful tribute to summer! I will be back soon!
Thanks, Jennifer. We're wrapping up by going out on my brother's boat tomorrow.
But just between you, me, and everyone, I can't wait for summer to be over.
No…no…please, no. I don't want her to end. I will drink summer down to her dregs!
Where DID this summer go?! Enjoy your last few days… 😉
A beautiful farewell and lovely photos too. Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend!
Beautiful!!! Can't believe summer has come and gone. It seems each one goes faster and faster.
Love it! Thanks.
My son started school last Wednesday – nine days ago. It goes by so fast! Nice pictures.
Summer is far too short…I just want to hold on to every moment. Here in Denver, there are too many concerts to attend, barbques to eat at, lakes to visit and mountains to explore.
So I must prioritize, which i absolutely hate!
I am going to miss her. Summer. But she has left me tired with all her parties and weddings and bike rides. Fall is usually not so high maintenance. I hope she comes soon.
Still sweltering over here…when did you say it was over?
But I don't want to let her go.
Just lovely this… and that last photo?
I love the picture at the carnival. That truly represents the summer I knew growing up.
What a cute entry! Love the pictures and we're more than ready to say good bye to summer here in NE Louisiana. Blessings to you for a beautiful week!
Oh…not so fast! Please linger just a bit longer.
It does seem like summer just began. You have captured her beautiful moments in your photos and your words, Jennifer.
I especially like the ones of your daughter's face, the carnival ride, the butterfly on flower, and the moon reflected on the lake. Stunning. (My husband is from Minnesota and I can almost picture that lake or one of 10,000 that bear its resemblance).
Summer in Arizona, unfortunately, will still be with us long into fall.
Good-bye summer. Farewell till next year. Till then…you'll be missed.
