Feels Like Summer


Oh my gosh it is so hard to believe we had a partly sunny day today - Yeah - could the worst of the gray wet weather be behind us?
A sure sign of June around here is the explosion of day lilies!

I spent about 3 hours sitting on the patio relaxing and trying to get a little base color before we go to the beach for a week on Saturday. I don't tan much to begin with but want to be on the darker shade of ghostly white before we go - LOL!

While I was sitting on the patio I was enjoying one of my favorite summer flowers - hydrangeas. We have a lot of hydrangea bushes in our yard and the colors range from blue to pink to purple to white. It's funny because they change color depending on the soil and condition after they have been planted. We've bought a couple at the nursery thinking we were getting one color and the following year they bloom in another color and stay that way through their life-time. Ours are just starting to bloom now and I captured pictures of the pinker/purple ones.

Beautiful flowers! I will be as pale at the end of summer as I am at the beginning of summer. I am a sunscreen queen! Have a great time at the beach. We are headed to the mountains!

Hi Beth
These flowers are gorgeous and I also love all the gray in your rug hooking. I love the little hanging ones too!:)

Glad you finally had some a sunny day, it has been about time. Your flowers are lovely. Hydrangeas look beautiful no matter what color they are.
