Enchanting Cone Flowers And Holly Hocks

Each morning and evening I take a walk around the yard, with no particular destination in mind I carry the camera hoping to get a few random shots of blooms popping here and there. This time of year like no other the changes are seen daily, from a small patch of green one day to pops of vivid color appearing the next, almost like magic the blooms seem to appear over night.

The Beauty Of A Cardinal

Most evenings are spent on the front porch enjoying the sweet sounds of Mother Nature. The other evening a Cardinal was flitting from tree to tree singing his little heart out, the sound was incredible. After a fashion I realized I should be taking shots of this beauty, wish I had thought to record the sound.  Most times they're so quick they fly off before I get that accomplished.

~ Dining Outdoors with Blue and White ~

We've had some of the most fabulous weather the last couple of days. It's just far to pretty to be inside. I know the heat of summer will be on us soon enough, I'm taking advantage of every beautiful moment I can outside.
Last week I gathered a few things together

~ A Few Changes To the Front Porch ~

Earlier in the Spring I got busy at the sewing machine putting together new pillows for the front porch. My original plan was to go red and white. Somewhere along the line those plans changed. I had the blue and white fabric on hand, originally meant for new draperies in the breakfast room. You know how it is....

~ Kitchen Make Over ~

I hope all of you had a wonderful Father's Day weekend. After a stormy wet weekend, dinner plans changed around here and I put together a new casserole recipe, I'll share with you soon. 

Watching DIY shows, pouring through Pinterest, and all of blog land can be dangerous at times. My mind seems to run in over time all the time, it's full of ideas I would love to put together. If money was no object oh the changes I could make, since that isn't a luxury for most of us, paint seems to be the answer. It can kick a project

~ Happy Father's Day ! ~

Daddy will soon

~ A Small Tour Around The Gardens ~

Each morning as weather permits you'll find me coffee cup in hand taking a stroll around the yard. The last couple of mornings have been beautiful. The birds are singing their little tunes all is right with the world. I think they enjoy these cool mornings as much as I do. Everything is so pretty this time
