Goodbye summer, hello autumn

Daisies by Kimberly Gauthier

How fitting that we celebrate the official close of the summer season with this beautiful symbol of summer, the daisy? Professional photographer Kimberly Gauthier of Washington State sent me this beautiful image. Here's what she has to say about it:

"It's of daisies at our new house and every time I look at it I smile, because we were house hunting for 3 years before we found exactly what we were looking for; the daisies grow to 3' high along the border of the puppy yard. We couldn't believe that not only did we find a house that had everything on our list, but it also had a quarter acre yard for our new puppies."

Kimberly has a wonderful galley online filled with inspiring colors and shapes. If you need a pick-me-up, stop by and visit her gallery.

  1. Thank you so much. What a marvelous pick me up this morning. Summer is over here in Washington State - rain rain and more rain. But I'm smiling ear to ear right now :)

  2. You are so welcome. Your gallery is such a mood booster!


Ooh,a comment! How delightful.
