Rainy days this week have finally made me accept the fact that fall is here and our beautiful summer is done. This weeks blog is a look back on summer photos here at Stillwaters.
We had such wonderful gardening weather this year!
The hummingbirds enjoyed a full summer of tasty food!
We have also had some spectacular Sunrises and Sunsets this year.
Here’s are some visitors we see a lot around here in the summer.
