wherever you are


A window in a local village shop, "Summer wherever." I love that Summer can be wherever we are.
Wave Hill showing signs of summer.
My daughter will gather a collection from the garden and simply arrange them with such effortless nonchalance. Funny how a weed is a flower to a 10 year old.
When do we start to diferentiate?
"If I keep a green bough in my heart, the singing bird will come." Chinese Proverb

Freshness of green, the singing of birds, hot humid air, 90 degree days, shorts, flip-flops and the release of routine are starting to show signs that Summer is wherever I go.

Wherever you are, Just a reminder to hop on over to "Cote de Texas" and leave a comment, last I checked there nearly 300 comments....I feel so fortunate to know that so many of you would love to win a little "pve" design, wherever you are this Summer.

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

I enjoy your comment re: your ten year old daughter picking flowers and weeds, and it's all good. The innocence and beauty of a young girl.

And a Happy Memorial Day weekend to you too!

Happy Friday! The only real signs of summer here is the amount of day light. We are so far north that it is still twilight after 10pm. I have such found memories of summer staying outside playing kick the can and cops and robbers until it was dark! Love summer for all the childhood memories!

The sun is shining on you dear! (Your drawing will be featured next week. About time!)

Got to go - need to put my name in the hat over at CTT!

A warm hug, Mon

I'm so glad it's summer. Although in Atlanta the heat by late July/August can be oppressive. But it's wonderful now and there is less of a schedule - yippee! My 14 year old starts his first job in two weeks so he will have a busy summer before high school. I adore the photo of your daughter's flowers.

Yay! Summer! My littlest always brings me weed-flowers, which constantly reminds me I am far too judgmental most of the time. :)

Summer is my fave! How am I just learning of this fab giveaway now??? Going there ...bye!

The Buzz said...

I read somewhere that a weed is a plant that doesn't know its place - so here's to picking the weeds and making them part of your life!

VictoriaArt said...

So sweet the little jar with the "weeds"...

Happy M.D. weekend to you too!

I just "hopped" over to C.d.T. Patricia...didn't know about the give-away, where have I been!?!

Love seeing the beginnings of summer start to stir...and I still think weeds are pretty....when they behave!

When are you coming over by the way? The stove and I are very excited to see you! ;)
Have a lovely weekend...
