Late Summer Vignette with Sunflowers

When I went for my morning run today I had to wear light gloves; it was that cold.

I wore shorts, but my fingers would’ve been too cold without a little protection.

I am so mourning the departure of summer, as I do every year.

Luckily the store still has sunny yellow sunflowers to brighten my home.

I created a late summer vignette with sunflowers and a spray of tiny yellow flowers.

Late Summer Vignette with SunflowersI love these beautiful, sunny flowers and decorate with them every year.


Late Summer SunflowersLater this week it’s going to get down to 50 degrees during the day.

I do love Fall, but I’m not a fan of what comes after it.


Late Summer Vignette with SunflowersI added a few bits of green to my late summer vignette.


Flower Spray in Burlap SackI took a spray of these little flowers and tucked them in a burlap sack.

Late Summer Vignette with Sunflowers and Patches the KittyMy little Patches decided to get in on the decorating fun.

Yes, she has one eye. She had an accident when she was younger but it hasn’t affected her.

She can still run around and jump on things … although she is getting old now.


Late Summer Vignette with Sunny SunflowersI’m not quite ready yet for the darker Fall colors.

But for now, I think the yellow and green are pretty for a late Summer vignette.

  1. Love your vignette with the sunflowers. Wow, you are already getting colder? Not us. I wish. I think we should be near sixty degrees in the mornings soon.

  2. I love sunflowers in the fall (late summer too!). What a sweet vignette. I’m with you on liking fall but not what follows. There was frost in some areas here this morning but it’s a gorgeous sunny day. Enjoy it! Pam

  3. Your vignettes with the sunflowers are beautiful Jennifer! I love that you chose them for your fall decor. Light and airy and lovely…just like the rest of your beautiful home. Patches is too sweet fro words!

  4. As I was out running errands today I noticed that there were so many sunflowers every where and with the bright blue sky that Utah had today it really gave me a great feeling of graditude in my heart for the pure joy of some thing so small as that little bright flower that grows wild off the side of the road. Thanx for the reminder. I am a new blogger and I am asking if you would please follow my blog and then give me some comments on it. Thanx so much, Jo
