Don't Want To Let Summer Go? Keep The Feeling Of Summer Alive A Little Longer In Your Backyard!

This summer flew by way to fast!!  Don't you agree?  I am not ready to let it go, but I don't think there is anything I can do to change that!  It made me want to create the use of our backyard for as long as possible.  

What do you think about creating a fall feeling in your outdoor space to match the changes in nature?  That way you can prolong the feeling of summer by being outdoors!  I like that idea because there is nothing like feeling in-touch with nature!!  

I have collected some inspiring photos and ideas for you:

ahh!!  gathering around a cozy fire with the added glow of candles. the hanging baskets are still holding on, but you know it won't be much longer!!  Enjoy these peaceful moments before it gets too cold outside!!
