Signage Errors We Enjoy (and the end of summer)

Since I'm usually late, I decided to be early this time. Only because the sky was a day early. Tomorrow is the official end of summer. There are so many things to say goodbye to... Since I like all the seasons I rarely bother; it's always hello to the next one.

But this picture (snapped through a dirty windshield at a stop light), made us chuckle today. What do you think? Someone ordered the sign for South Long Lake Road, and instead gave all who wait at that corner to enter the highway and head home a poignant reminder that the vacation is over?

And then there's the sky. It has been raining all day, cool and mostly gentle with occasional cloudbursts. Very fall-like. But we get one more pastel sky- more a color of spring than harvest. I'll add this to "Moods of My Backyard."

Headed for work in a couple of hours, but tomorrow morning I have no activities I have to get up for. I'm really looking forward to that! Hope you have a wonderful last-day-of-summer Saturday!

A funny sign and a beautiful scene. Who could ask for anything more? I never like seeing the end of summer though. I wish I could feel more positive about it.

Ah, yes. Today is, for me, the last full day of summer. Tomorrow in the day of seasonal transition and Sunday bring me the first full day of autumn. I love these times of seasonal transformation. It is, indeed, a time of farewells and welcomes!

And that sign ~ too funny. And quite appropriate!

And that "Moods" photo … ::sigh:: … what a beautiful, dreamy scene. Thanks for sharing that!

Friday night our skies were bright pink. We enjoyed watching them as we ate a late supper. Love that road sign.

The acorns are starting to come on our oak trees now. I wouldn't recognise any of your pictures as oak at all; ours are so different. A fascinating post, thanks.

The sign could be a poignant reminder that "it's" all over. Great colors in the second photo.

Ratty- I still like the seasons- hope you enjoy the next one

Chuck- the pink was really interesting, and the cloud cover diffused it

Ann- as you will read, I did!

Jean- different how? Oaks have either points or rounded lobes. Well, chinquapin oak is different I guess

vanilla- and the camera didn't alter it much. It really was like that

What a kick that sign is. The best one I ever saw was one someone posted on FB. It was on the marquee in front of a church - "honk if you love Jesus. Text if you want to meet him."
