We had a thunder storm that brought the temperature down 20° from 93° and that's a good thing. 🌩 🌨 🌩

This is a great photo, isn't it? Wish I had been the one who took it. Tis the season for birds spreading their wings and leaving behind an empty nest. via Many fledglings spend 3 to 5 days on the ground when they first depart the next and are often mistaken for injured birds. Here's a great website for determining if you have discovered a bird trying to fledge.
I took this cloudscape from my balcony last night at 7:41. I mowed the back of my property a little over a week ago. My front lawn is an embarrassment it's so long. I am waiting for the perfect weather that hasn't happened yet. I plan to wait until this heat wave is over before using my walk-behind mower.
I took this big sky photo at 8:42. I guess all of the humidity we had during the day went into cloud making.
I turned off my central air last night and it was so nice to hear the chirping insects that sang and chirped me to sleep. Open windows at night in the summer are the best. So far, there hasn't been one night that I slept with the A/C on. So happy. Enjoy your Sunday and stay cool. xo
This has got to be one of the best entrance vestibule I have ever seen. I can't stop looking at the photo either. Is that a tile floor? I love the thin herringbone design! Love the door.
Hope you are staying cool. We have had three of the hottest days of the year with at least five more to follow before it gets down to 88° I am fine with my stack of DVDs to watch and my central air. I have it set pretty high so the house isn't like a walk-in cooler, but comfortable. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. xo photo source
My lacecap hydrangea did not bloom this year because of the late frost. They bloom on last year's growth. I cut it back to the ground and now have a big bush with lovely green leaves. All was not lost.🍃 🌿 🍃 Have a great weekend. xo
I want to thank all of you for your constant thoughts about my dogless condition. I recently stumbled on a blog that will break your heart (in a good way). It's about a very talented florist in England who lost her shop dog.
You should probably get out your tissues before reading this saddest of sad blog posts.
Can you guess the happy news in this adorable photo?
Miss Pickering hasn't added any new posts to her blog in a long time but you can find her on Instagram. She is very busy and Instagram is fast and easy. Look for her there. Her pup has grown quite a bit and I wish she would post more photos of her shop helper. Hopefully she will read this and blog more about her new love. The new pup has his own Instagram account. @valentinewhippet
I have never used this to catch flying insects because I don't have too many in the house and I prefer to swat them when I do. But I love having this little item hanging in my kitchen anyway. Stay cool, it's going to be a scorcher here today and I'm prepared for it. They say the humidity will make it feel like 100° so I'm going to the library and the post office this morning and will enjoy my central air when I return. Enjoy your Monday. xo
I have never seen a copper farm sink used in a powder room. I love this mirror with a luggage rack on top too. It's perfect for towels. Maybe it's a nautical item. I love the window and the pocket door too. via Maybe this little bath is on a boat. What do you think?
How gorgeous is this? I love that there are only three colors. Green, white and blue. The hedges are beyond fabulous and quite impossible but fun to see. Have a great Friday, the gateway to the weekend. via

Raindrops resting on a finely woven spiderweb on my boxwood this rainy Saturday. I can hardly believe my weather went from air conditioning yesterday to 66° this morning. It feels fabulous and we need the rain! 🔹 🔹 🔹
