What is it about the time between late summer and early fall that we struggle with what remains of the season; pickling cucumbers, making preserves or cultivating the garden to yield a few more flowers before early frost.
Soak up the sun & surf near any body of water, preferably an ocean or lake before losing too much light. Escape to a seaside island or spa for a weekend of relation.
There is nothing like a steamed basket of blue crabs known as “Maryland crab”, which are caught in Virginia waters off the Chesapeake Bay, sprinkled with bay seasoning makes a perfect summer meal. Watermelon is a staple in our house during the season, which is used for lunches or snacking.
Seasonal storms blow in frequently throughout the mid-Atlantic, which create a cozy atmosphere inside when it’s impossible to get outside for gardening, barbecuing, or swimming.And, no matter where I travel, I always enjoy flowers. These are in a window box in Charleston, SC near the Battery.
Enjoy what’s left of the season….stylishly!

There is nothing like the crisp cool nights of fall!!!
That watermelon and the crabs look good. Nothing like going down to Baltimore and eating crab cakes at Faidleys in Lexington Market. Not going to miss summer at all . Bring on the Fall
