Relaxing Under the Lilacs



                                                                  Hello everyone,
                                                       Summer has finally arrived here and the
                                                      garden has changed dramatically in the
                                                      past week. I got up early this morning and
                                                      some photos of it to share with you later.
                                                       Today, it is a little relaxation under the
                                                      very fragrant Korean lilac standards that
                                                      were a birthday gift several years ago.
                                                 
                                                              Since it is a hot day I am enjoying
                                                              lemonade and sugar cookies.


                                                       My comfy vintage chaise under the lilacs
                                                       is a perfect spot to read for awhile.
                                                      The garden bike came from Winner's and
                                                      I gave it a coat of pistachio green paint.
                                             The vintage quilt was from Time Worn Treasures
                                             and the April Cornell pillow is a thrift find.


                                                      Thank you for visiting and
                                                               Happy Canada Day to all my
                                                               Canadian friends!

                                                               I am joining

It all looks very inviting, Carolyn. I love lilacs and the color lilac, too. Very, very pretty. Susan

Happy Canada Day, Carolyn.

You have provided the perfect and beautiful setting to enjoy a cool sip and some nice relaxing reading.

Your lilacs - and other flowers - are so pretty. Gosh it seems forever ago my lilacs were in bloom.

It's been unbearably hot and humid here. Too hot to be outdoors except for early morning and early evening when the sun isn't harsh.

How lovely and cool that looks!

We are having heat and humidity, which is great for tomatoes, but we should be really cool by the weekend, which is not normal for this time of year.

Happy Canada Day to you!

Your garden is beautiful. Like a fairy tale. My lilacs never bloom, nor do my roses. Wonder what I'm doing wrong? Guess I just don't have a green thumb. Have a joyous summer friend!

This cozy little setting is somewhere I could be comfortable with a magazine.
Happy Canada Day!

Beautiful Garden. What a lovely spot to sit and sip some lemonade and have cookies; and maybe read a good book. All your color choices are pretty; the ornamental bike looks perfect in your garden.

Bernideen said...

I think this is the quilt you had on that beautiful sun porch posting and how lovely it looks here amongst your wonderful lilacs!

Carolyn:
I have tried repeatedly to order your tea book but with no success. When I click on that picture it says something like "can not be found". Also, when I go to your page at Magcloud it doesn't show it. ???

Thank you so much, to come and visit you is always such a joy !
Sending much love <3
