Indian Summer

 
                                                  ...A soft veil dims the tender skies,
                                                  And half conceals from pensive eyes
                                                  The bronzing tokens of the fall;
                                                  A calmness broods upon the hills,
                                                  And summer's parting dream instills
                                                  A charm of silence over all.
                                                                ~Henry van Dyke

    1. The boys built it with Daddy. They've had so much fun with it. Yes, we do love summer here, but we're really looking forward to fall. Time for cocoa, woolies, leaf piles and bonfires!

  2. So beautiful, Jenny!
    And we are of the same mind in our eagerness for fall and all the goodness that comes with it!

  3. I love the eye through the knothole and the wooden mask!
    Remind me of a cover for the book Pinocchio I once saw.
    My goodness, how much fun you all have together.
