Summer Days

By on August 24, 2012

Hello everyone,

It is still hot and sunny here so take a little break and enjoy a cup of peach tea and a book in the hammock.

It is phlox and hydrangea season here so I have picked a basket to enjoy.

My hammock is a canvas yard sale find with a lace tablecloth thrown over it.


You can see the garden in the background where the daylillies are thriving.


Pleasant dreams to you!

I see you have kicked off your wellies!

Our grass is turning brown this summer due to the lack of rain we have had all spring and summer.

If I don’t look too close at the garden I still see lots of beauty but closer inspection shows plants that are definitely stressed. I notice a lot of trees are losing their leaves.

The shasta daisies are blooming well.

Well, I went to town this morning to get some pretty paint for a few projects so I better get to work but you can linger in the hammock under the shade of the big spruce tree with a gentle breeze to keep you cool and the sound of our brook to soothe your soul.

Enjoy your day!
