The Farm/House Quilt and the Impending End of Summer

I had a lot of fun working on this quilt.

In the little green strip below the barn I quilted in a row of mice.
There are birds on the roofs of the barns and houses.

In the 'Big House' block there is a rabbit sitting under the apple tree and a row of flowers in the front lawn.

For those of you who like to live with your heads in the sand, do you realize that Wednesday is the first day of Autumn?  The only good thing about that is the tomatoes will finally stop.  There is NOTHING worse than picking the roma tomatoes (which are pretty much on the ground because the plants sprawl) and sticking your bare hand into a rotten tomato.  gross!  yuk!  eeeuww! 

Summer's End
By Judith Viorst

One by one the petals drop
There's nothing that can make them stop.
You cannot beg a rose to stay.
Why does it have to be that way?

The butterflies I used to chase
Have gone off to some other place.
I don't know where. I only know
I wish they didn't have to go.

And all the shiny afternoons
So full of birds and big balloons
And ice cream melting in the sun Are done.
I do not want them done
