Summer Begins

Summer Solstice...

just as I feared
the first day of summer...

 windy and 

Big Surprise Right?

I snapped some pictures
earlier this month of the front porch
so I could share them with
Rhondi at
Rose Colored Glasses,
she's having a Porch Party!!

Everyone is sharing their porches...

Including our cats

They spend more time on the 
porch than we get to!

Another place we 
like to hang is out by the garden
under the grape arbor....

The water splashing into the pond
the birds singing around the garden
make it another 
great summer spot to relax!

Hope your schedule is filled
with fun summertime activities
and plenty of  "Porchtime"

Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen Cafe

Wow! These are some great photos! A storm blew through here last night and I do mean blew! I will post photos soon. I am so glad my garden is hanging in there. Enough already!

Your porch looks lovely and your cat is soooo cute laying on his bed.

What a beautiful place you have. Good idea to snap some summery photos while the weather was cooperating.

Chilly and rainy here too today. I think it's going to be one of "those" summers where it never really warms up.

Lovely photos! Today was our first glorious non-rain summer day (or close to it). Love the tire swing with the text and texture. Sweet!

Just beautiful!

Hi Lisa
You have two things I love and don't have anymore: lilacs and an orange tabby cat. We can't grow lilacs like that in NC and our grandson is allergic to cats. Thanks for coming to my porch party.
Hugs, Rhondi

These are beautiful Lisa! I especially love the first one. I sure hope the weather gets more summery for you.
