Autumn cannot come soon enough - tweed pangs.

  1. I was having the same longing for fall today as well; thankfully however not hurried along by 108 degree temps. Yikes! Stay cool.

  4. The sooner, the better.
    All those tweed jackets, grey flannel trousers, and neckties waiting to be worn.

  5. It's not really the tweed, it's about layering. Layering is so key.

  6. I'm in no hurry. I's rather mow the lawn than rake leaves. But it has been a little on the warm side lately.

  7. It's getting close to putting the Lacoste and Madras shirts in the back of the closet.

  8. I'd have to agree....pining for fall here as well. Yes, I realize many people love the summer months, but I'm not among them. I'll take the fog, a cool, brisk day, and the fireplace any day. Oh yes, and the tweed and cashmere are a nice bonus!

  10. Actually, I am thinking about winter - snow, ice, Jack Frost.

  11. 108 in New England? I thought it was bad enough here in VA at 95- supposed to be 101 tomorrow. I was just now trying to reassure Albert, my extremely bored dog, that cooler weather will arrive in about 8 weeks. I also asked him to conserve energy because I'm not sure we will be able to afford our electric bill! Summertime is not for me and never has been.

  13. Wow. That temperature is not pleasant. According to the Farmer’s Almanac we have about 70 days until fall. Hopefully not all as bad as the one you posted.

  14. Don’t like the heat. I have considered renting myself out as a mosquito magnet to clear areas for outdoor parties. I must admit though that it’s pretty nice sitting here on the porch under a fan wearing an old madras shirt, pleated shorts (7”), a pair of Sperrys that are so old the toes are a bit pointed, and drinking a cup(s) of coffee while finishing yesterday’s papers. Winter ? ...and Fall is so fleeting.

  15. Your summer not hot yet here in Conn’s northwest corner. 50’s awaking this fine morn. And everything is green, Green and GREENER. Tweeds can wait. Grazie.

    1. I couldn't agree more, Seadog. But I also agree with JDS, I do enjoy a bit of summertime fun in madras. Madras and G&Ts define Summer for me. It has been unusually hot here in Colorado so we escape to the mountains for cooler temps: 50 degree early mornings followed by a light blanket at night. Few mosquitos but, sadly, no fireflies. We'll begin to feel Autumn by the end of August...soon enough. Suzanne

  18. Each season has its joys. Seersucker on a hot summer day. The onset of tweed and cashmere to accompany the burst of fall color. The magic of the holiday season rolling into a challenging winter. The hope of the first colors of spring. Let us not rush through the majesty of all these transitions. Indeed, my favorite is fall, but without the other seasons it would not not have its grandness.

    1. How true. We in New England, and elsewhere, are blessed with the four seasons. Please, enjoy each one. Fall is the favorite of many, for good reason. But one can love the colors of winter - white, blues, silvers and grays, the opening of the earth in spring and the golden days of summer; when the corn is high, honey is in the hive, and cucumbers and squash litter the garden.

  19. I loathe summer more with each year. In Europe it was the hottest June ever, and AC is practically non-existent here. I much prefer fall and spring. I can add a sweater, scarf, wool socks, etc. when it is hot, but there is only so much one can take off and still it is uncomfortable.

  20. Life is so fleeting. I enjoy each season as it comes. This year has been a kick in the shins for my extended family, so each day is a reward. Plus in summer there's always the relief of a 5 pm gin gimlet w fresh squeezed lime juice. Prost!

  21. Sailing in Maine. The only time that it's at its best is high summer. I dream of it year round and live for those precious moments. But I do love all the seasons.

  22. Now I feel bad complaining about the heat here in Los Angeles. Where I am, the temperature has only started to creep into high 80s / low 90s - thus far an unusually mild summer. Though I long for cooler weather, I'm going to try and make the most of the summer weather.

  23. Just remember:
    Ice and snow, sleet and rain;
    Bloody January again.
