A Perfect Summer Day



The "perfect summer day"
MUST be thought of 
as a celebration!

Around here there
aren't many perfect days...

(I won't go there, cause you
KNOW what I mean!)

So when SUNNY ~
     85 Degrees ~
HARDLY a WIND~
and not a STORM cloud in sight
rolls around...
it's time to 
worship the day 
and don't waste a second!!

I started gathering everything 
I love....



FLOWERS ~ FLOWERS ~ FLOWERS






The beautiful birdy plates
I've been waiting to use...
(a gift from my Jersey girlfriend)







Some cobalt blue glass ware
(because I love blue & yellow together)






Pansies! 
(for my sister)









My table is set!

I can relax in the sun....

                quietly,
                                 peacefully....






Maybe I'll write a letter 
to a friend....






I do love getting postcards!





Or maybe I'll lose 
myself in a pile 
of gardening books....






I could catch up in my garden journal....





Or maybe just 
chill and watch the clouds go by...



Be still my heart,
this day can not last
long enough!






Another cup of tea please!




What would you be gathering
on a perfect summer day?

Sunny smiles today and always,

Oh I wanna sit there and read one of your books! Maybe there's some cows waaaay of in the distance and later I could spread out a cozy quilt and take a nap?
Awesome pics makes me feel like I am right there with my toes in the grass

Have to follow your blog for the mere fact that you set a beautiful place to watch the world go by!

What a lovely picture story you tell. Makes me want to sit down and enjoy a relaxing tea with you. We had a perfect day here, too. I spent it at a daylily farm. Heaven!
