Summer's first day!
And our huge, takes-forever-to-trim honeysuckle hedges are bursting with blossoms, the scent which probably perfumes Heaven. It's that glorious.
And in honor of summertime, I finally, after over a year of considering doing this (these things take time. heh.), brought down this chair and table from Debra's World. Life on the front porch looks and feels better, more balanced and not so spindly or 'leggy' now.
Also--finally--after so many weeks of waiting, my first free issue of Country Living arrived.
...what a perfect day for it!
And even though Tom and I tease that, at our next house, we'll have a yard only this size since I can easily, happily manage this side yard:
... on a day like this--one where my mowing of the lawn was rewarded by sun and blue skies and glorious quiet and that heavenly, bee-calling scent--well, this larger yard becomes worth all its work. I can 'garden walk' like a bee from plant to plant, flower to flower, and gaze, sniff and revel in the delight of owning a bit of land to make a garden for Tom and myself.
Happy Summer to you! Do something special to celebrate this longest day of the year, ok?

One here. (Check it out in red, also.)
I saw an even spiffier retro dining set this morning on The Price is Right, but I've not been able to find it online yet. I noted the Wayfair name, but not the manufacturer's name. sigh. Or...... perhaps they sold out already! :)
Oh! And my super-cheap mailing address labels ($4 plus shipping for 280) arrived today, also. I am thrilled with them--find the ones I chose here. (My favorite way to own a farm --- photos on paper or paintings up on walls.) :)
Love retro kitchens? These will steal your heart.
