Hello again! I hope you are enjoying summer! I have been wanting to share what I am up to with you but life will not stop moving long enough for me to get pictures!
We have only just now swept up this patio to enjoy in the mornings. Any other time of day has been too hot. We have just passed through a scorching heat wave that is finally on the wane for awhile.
A few sunflowers make me feel like I am having a summer in Tuscany. Is there anything more iconic?
I have also popped this boxwood into a nice big vintage zinc tub to dress things up out there. Boxwoods have really done well for us in pots even in the
I still love the look of vintage garden furniture too. I don't think I could ever have enough. I'm not a very good gardener, but I sure love garden style!
I have managed to sneak in a little flea market shopping and found this cheery old chippy drawer. I think it makes a fantastic prop if I ever get back to arranging vignettes again.
The antique handle makes me swoon. And don't you just love the color?
I also finally set up a little fountain that I picked up last spring for the patio. I was hoping that the sound of water would attract a few birds. It isn't placed well for them to come to drink though.
Can you believe I found something so Cabin & Cottage looking?
Makes me feel so cheery!
When my little girls come to visit I love to make a stop at the local nursery. Anything involving water, and the kids are all in!
We got some fresh herbs for a doorstep garden. Unless the plants are right under my nose I forget to water them! And right under my nose is exactly where I want them to be anyway!
The girls took some little pots home with them too.
I have had this round vintage metal garden stand for a lot of years because I like it for display. But now it works perfectly for scooting plants around in and out of the sun in the crazy hot weather. A couple of old water cans are kept full by the front door.
My computer has been on the fritz and I had to upgrade it to windows 10 after putting it off for a very long time. I also decided it was time for a new model, so I have been tied up a lot learning how to blog again with my new systems! So that is also a part of what I have been up to.
I hope you have been enjoying all the summer things that you love to do! We have done a ton of family outings already. So much left to do!
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
