Gentle Summer Breezes

                                                                            Happy Weekend!

                                                             It is a beautiful summer day here
                                                             with the promise of a sunny week
                                                              Our open garden went well and it
                                                             was nice to see some of you enjoying
                                                             the garden in spite of a short shower.

                                                                   The next morning I took
                                                                   a stroll down to the boathouse
                                                                   to enjoy a few quiet moments.
                                                                   As, I was reading in my favorite
                                                                   little nook, I enjoyed the gentle
                                                                   summer breeze and the warm sunshine
                                                                   streaming in.
                                                                     We often enjoy a cup of tea
                                                                      here for a break.
                                                                       I love summer and always want to
                                                                       hang onto it as long as I can.
                                                                             A cozy wrap.
                                                                         The teapot and tea cup came
                                                                         from Winners a few years ago.
                                                                           A scented geranium in the
                                                                           conservatory on the boathouse.
                                                              Hope you enjoyed some
                                                                         gentle summer breezes too!

                                                                         Have a great weekend!

Oh, seriously - does life get much better than a respite in your awesome boat house surrounded by cut garden flowers, sun beams and light breezes, gorgeous china and tea time with a favorite magazine with pretty pictures?

How you manage to get so much done when you are surrounded with such loveliness is beyond my comprehension, Carolyn. Enjoy every morsel of it, my dear. ♥

Wundervoll! Ein ideales Plätzchen zum Entspannen und lesen!Wir hatten 2 Monate einen extreme Hitze mit über 30°. Nun kühlte es endlich ab und Regen lässt wieder alles aufatmen! Einen schönen Sonntag wünscht Dir

I missed the garden tour. I imagine everything is so beautiful. Your home and gardens are so inspiring and relaxing. I miss your scones and tea.

Hello Carolyn. Like you, I want to s-t-r-e-t-c-h out summer as long as humanly possible. Gosh. I don't want to hear about Farmers Almanac "horrid winter ahead" predictions. Love all your photos of your lovely spaces. Susan
