Greens From Daddy’s Patio: From Summer to Fall (Week 22-ish)

First of the fall and there she goes back... -Sly and the Family Stone 

Hello my loves!

Here’s a quick check-in as Daddy and I transition from a summer garden to a fall garden. If you are just tuning in, you’d have to go back to the beginning to see why we are where we are today.

Not to worry though, you can find past episodes on the right panel of this blog under categories: Greens From Daddy’s Patio.

Anyway…

There have been some losses, but, as I said before, I’ve learned that this is a huge part of the process.

Enjoy !

Love Notes From Lady G: Dream on Dreamer…

Dream on dreamer life gets in your way
If the life you live is a spinning top of pain then you can
Dream on dreamer life gets in your way
If ya live to learn you’ll be lucky one day

Last Night of Summer

 

LNF-9-22-18-2

Far be it from me to skip out and NOT post something to acknowledge my favorite season…

Autumn!

Fall!

Those of you who followed this blog when it was an active thingy will remember that Autumn is my JAM!

And so…

I had to take time today to greet the Autumnal Equinox and all of my friends on WordPress!

I miss you all so much!

Here are a few pictures of how I spent the last evening of Summer (2018) with our dear Luna and friends!

As you know, Mother moon was doing her waxing gibbous thing.

No doubt, preparing for the upcoming equinox, and for all of her glory when she will show her full self as the harvest moon.

Uh huh….

And so….

At summer’s end, LadyG–lover of music, magick, and dance…

sashayed…

twirled…

spun…

twisted…

and flourished herself into a foolish frenzy!

Right there underneath the moonlight!

Poolside no less!

Baby, ALL OF THE elements were at play!

Perhaps the universe noticed my whimsy!

And…

Maybe it will bring more things to dance about…

for ME…

AND…

for YOU!

I love you all!  Stop by and say hello in comments

Love and light!

LadyG 😘💋💋

We met in starry Winter.

Spring-Summer

Had a ball!

The chime rings twelve,

Her time had come to

Leave me in the Fall.

-Lady G For Mama💞 RIP

 

I really wish you guys could have ‘met’ my Mom!  

She was truly something else!  

By the way, down South, we often describe certain people as being “something else” when we can’t quite find the best words to describe them.  

Mind you, this could be either good or bad 🙂

In Mama’s case it was a good thing!

And so…

Here, in the Northern Hemisphere, we celebrate the first day of fall!

It’s my favorite time of year!

Last year, I decided to greet the Autumnal Equinox with this popular post!  

Feel free to check it out!

Meanwhile, I will leave you to celebrate our dear season with the following musical goodies!

The first song was one of Mama’s favorites by Marvin Gaye.  We’d sing it together while dancing and having a ball!

The second song is….What can I say? Apropos!

 

 

Love and light to you all!

LadyG  😘💋💋

First of the Fall

***From the “My Jams” Archives (1969)

“First of the Fall and there she goes back…”

Hot Fun In The Summertime by Sly and The Family Stone:  August 1969

One of my favorite songs of all time!

The piano intro is so haunting; it hits me smack dab in the middle of my brain’s wistful zone.

Strangely enough, I love that!

I live for the way Sly likens summer days to a magical lady that appears at the “end of the spring” and goes away before the “first of the fall.”

What an enchanting metaphor!

Can’t you just imagine this fanciful little golden sprite twirling in and out of our lives, bringing and taking sunny memories with her.

“…everythang is cool!!!”

🙂 🙂 🙂

And now…

I celebrate the Northern Hemisphere’s ‘re-entry’ into the gates of the Autumnal Equinox!

And, as a true lover of fall, I’m brimming over with majestic and sublime feelings of exaltation!

Welcome back Autumn!  Welcome back!

If you live in the Northern half of the world, why don’t you join me as I salute the return of crisp cool mornings, slanted afternoon sunlight and brisk evening breezes!

Go now and open the closest door or window; better yet, step outside!

Bid summer farewell and envision her as she pirouettes away on the melody of this jam!

 

 

 

Ah…wasn’t that exhilarating!

Oh well, my time here is up.

I’ll see you guys later!

Lady J and I have a date with “the first of the Fall!”

Much love as always,

Lady G

😘💋
