Summer Relaxation

 Hell everyone,
     I hope you all had a relaxing weekend-maybe some time in the hammock?
 With a good book and a pretty bouquet to enjoy.
 This is one of my favourite books. It is from Norway and a Christmas one is coming out soon.Check it out on my left sidebar.
 Hope you didn't fall asleep yet-I have more to show you!
 Like some pretty peonies.

 Or another of my favorite places to relax and my favorite guy to relax with!
 It is such a peaceful place to read or just watch the sights and sounds of nature.

 We have been enjoying the sunshine here but still hoping for a rainy day soon.

Thank you for visiting,



hoje vejo suas fotos de outra maneira. E que sossego este local nos passa. Relaxe bastante e aproveite seu verão.

Fique em paz.

Just lovely, Carolyn! I would love to take a nap in that oh-so-comfy looking hammock!

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

SO beautiful!!

How nice to see you and your hubs in photos, too, for a change.

You must love to nap in that awesome hammock by your serenity pond.

Just lovely.

We FINALLY got some rain - wow it's been so so long.....we had 3 quick storms blow in, the 3rd one actually gave us a good soaking but the other two just teased.

The ground soaked it all in so fast - nice to have it a mite cooler, actually did some more weeding once it stopped raining.

Your blog is an inspiration. You should publish a book of all the pictures you show on your blog. I would glady buy one. So beautiful and relaxing looking at them.

What a gorgeous spot to relax in and to enjoy the view.

I love peonies. They are both beautiful and they smell so good.

Have a lovely week ahead!

Hi Carolyn!
It looks so relaxing where you are..and a nice surprise to see your hubby!
We just returned from our holidays and the places we went were hoping for rain as well. There was one downpour for a little bit, but the ground is yearning for rain.
It was good to visit you ...have a wonderful week my friend!

Deborah xoxo

Oh Carolyn.....your house, gardens, and property is something out of a movie. Or a little slice of heaven. :) I can't even come close to imagining what it's like being surrounded by that much beauty everywhere you turn. What a blessing!
