Sweet

 I wish I could describe to you
the sweet aroma today's breeze off the
ocean (a couple of miles away)
 is carrying in through
the open windows.
Wild White Roses  Variety?

It is the kind of scent
that fills your nostrils, makes you breathe
deeper...


...lets you dream
that you are a perfume maker in Paris and that
your special "Wild White Rose" parfum is
being bottled....


...back to reality....
as I spiral back up the rabbit hole....

Baby Spiders as Moving Art

We have had rain this week...oh maybe 10 inches give or take....

A Summer Collection

I have tried to recover some of the baby plants in the veggie garden...

Hydrangea

not really sure how things will end up.
I'll take some pictures as the week progresses.

Moved the bird bath out of the lush ferns!

For today, I just did a bit of wandering, reveling in a couple
of days of sunshine.

New vines....Virginia Creeper???

Don't mind the crazy overgrown
vines and brush...

Lush overgrowth...the birds love this.

...there is far more of it than you know...



...but 2 people can't keep up with all of this craziness....
Once school ends we will have more time to dedicate to trimming and tending...

Wild Beach Roses

For now I am admiring and planning...

Wild Ferns

....taking in Mother Nature's gifts


...looking forward to color and
new life....

White Hibiscus

......and warm summer nights....


....and maybe even a little
reading and dreaming on the
sleeping porch.

*and for those of you that responded about the Irises...I will 
contact within the next day and thank you so much!

Busy

June.
A month of heat and then cold....sun and rain...
meetings galore, birthdays and play dates, and school trips.
A month of soccer and track and 
sick puppies.

We are on our way to wave good-bye to our 14 year old as he 
leaves for a week-long school trip roughing it in the mountains.
(This year as a chaperone).

So I will leave you with my Instagram photos from the past week
 or so to catch up on June!
