Summer Bliss

Hello everyone,

It has been awhile since I posted
and I can't believe it is almost
However, we have had a beautiful
summer and I have been 
enjoying spending time
relaxing at our Ocean Song
Cottage by the sea.

It was a calm peaceful day
with the tide rolling out
so a little time on
my vintage chaise
was the order of the day!

                                                                     Lemonade and a healthy snack
                                                                     along with a book was all I needed
                                                                     to enjoy some peaceful relaxation.

You can see a fishing boat off
in the distance and I enjoy
listening to the call of the


                                                                 Hope this isn't too many photos but I

Peaceful Sunday

Wishing you a peaceful Sunday.

                                                                  Nook at our Ocean Song Cottage

                                                                  Could there be anything more peaceful
                                                                   than listening to the waves lapping on
                                                                   the beach when going to sleep or                                                                                                                                            
                                                                    or when you wake up in the morning?

             One of my favorite reading spots!

Watching the sailboats go by
is also peaceful.
                                                                I hope you these images invoke
                                                                a sense of peace in you too!

                                                                              Thank you for visiting!

The Charm of Flowers

Hello everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
We are getting a much needed rain here
so I am happy for our garden and lawn
as well as the farmers crops as it has been
a beautiful but dry summer here on the Island.

This morning before leaving our little
Ocean Song Cottage I took a few shots
of the back porch.

My husband made the curlicues for me
and planters and hanging baskets
really add a lot of charm.
I bought the old chair for $1
several years ago and
I think it adds charm with
a basket of flowers.

                                                                   The before photo

                                                   Well, after spending some time weeding
                                                              and deadheading in our garden at home
                                                              we have decided to treat our selves to
                                                             a late lunch at one of our favorite summer
                                                                               Thank you for visiting!

Clematis in the Garden

    Hello everyone,

   I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
  I can't believe it is already into August,
          the time when our garden is the most colorful.
           We finally, had a good rain this morning but we
         could use a couple of days of rain as our lawns
are getting burnt out.

                                                                       Anyway, the clematis is putting on a good
                                                                       show right now so I took a few shots to
                                                                       share with you.
                                                                         This is a newer clematis but
                                                                          it has a few blooms poking
                                                                          through the arbor.
                                                                       Jackmani superbra is one
                                                                       of my favorites.

                                                                         Clematis growing on our 'shed'

                                                              Clematis in our 'Chelsea Garden'
                                                            These are a few of our clematis that are in bloom
                                                                        right now.

                                                                         Have a good week!
