“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.”

Sunday Reflections…

Sunday morning report –

The garden is growing like gangbusters! Vegetables as well as flowers 🌺 As the days get longer and longer it’s tough for me to ever actually make it in the house 😊 But, as soon as I get in there in the a/c… sleep comes quickly. I Love ❤️ it! 

I’m enjoying my hanging baskets and flowers 🌺 this season! I’ve created a “plant wall” of sorts to give me more shade and more privacy. I ❤️ It!

I’m enjoying the quiet sunrise all by my little lonesome 😊 But here in a few, I’m gonna fix breakfast for everyone… Then, I’m gonna spend the rest of the morning finishing up my planting! Boy how I love Sunday gardening! 

“What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.”

     ~ Gertrude Jekyll


Have a great Sunday!

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful night we had last evening. We had our Luau party and the weather was just perfect 😊 So many wonderful people came and enjoyed a beautiful June evening in our Garden. The music was Awesome and the food was Great!

From prepping the food to greeting guest yesterday was filled with fun! The neatest reactions came from some of the kids😊 Kids LOVE nature!

Summer is just starting! But it will be gone in the blink of an eye 👁… I hope you can get out and enjoy the Summer season. In fact, let’s all make a point to do just that😊 Times flying by…

 

“Mine is the Month of Roses; yes, and mine
The Month of Marriages! All pleasant sights
And scents, the fragrance of the blossoming vine,
The foliage of the valleys and the heights.
Mine are the longest days, the loveliest nights;
The mower’s scythe makes music to my ear;
I am the mother of all dear delights;
I am the fairest daughter of the year.”

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

Have a GREAT Sunday!
