A little bit of this and that....

Summer is winding down, however, you wouldn't think so from the sunny weather and warm temperatures we have had during the past couple of days.  The nights have been cool with some frost on the roof tops of the houses in my neighbourhood.  Summer flowers in the garden are looking tired and beginning to prepare themselves for the colder weather ahead.  However, a few mums, sedum and asters are still providing some colour.   Autumn will soon be here, then the  maple trees will be changing into their glorious reds, oranges and yellows.  A lovely time of the year.  Then the leaves fall and we are left with the naked branches, until they are again clothed, oh no!!! with snow.    

Very little sewing has been done during the past couple of  months.   I had intended to take my sewing machine outside on my back deck and do some stitching there during July and August but that never happened, too many other things to do.  I have many UFO's that need my attention and ideas for future projects, so need to get organized.

 But first..... I am taking myself on another trip,  so will be AWOL for awhile.  Coming back refueled and ready to start in that sewing room again.  A lot of stitching needs to be done before Christmas.

A blog I follow is posted by a woman who works very hard to save so that she and her dh can travel.  She recently posted photos of an earlier trip they took which showed the older Panama City, it is a beautiful place.  Lovely memories.  In 2006 dh and I took a cruise to the Panama Canal.   A tour bus  to Panama City gave us a brief visit and taking photo's through the windows was impossible to do the city  justice.  So thought I would show a couple of pictures that I was able to take.  

The skyline of the modern Panama City.

Those of you that follow my blog know I love flowers, so had to show you some, of course.  I was told at the time this was an Orchid  Tree.  They were lovely.

Thank you for bringing back such lovely memories for us Patricia.

I must put some of my photos of the canal in a post.
