Summer Morning

We have been enjoying the deck this year, more than ever...there have been no mosqitoes, and the weather has been fine. While having that morning cup of coffee, my eyes wander over the yard, and I see many areas which need weeding, watering,or pruning, so that determines my activity for the next hour or so.
Sometimes I head back into the house for my camera, to capture a bloom or two, to enjoy when we face the long winter months when there is only an all-white vista from our window.

This week the hydrangeas are favorite flower.

Last week we stopped at Homesense, and the anticipated summer garden clearance was happening. I quickly snapped up this garden urn, about 1 minute before someone else asked to purchase it! It is about 4 feet tall, and heavy!  With our son's help, we placed it in a temporary location along our garden path. Next spring we'll decide on a permanent spot.

I hope you are enjoying YOUR summer.

Good Morning Millie, How wonderful it must be to have morning coffee on the deck and then wander throughout these colorful, fragrant flowers. Everything is gorgeous and the color of that urn is beautiful! Enjoy your day.

I really love your garden photos. Your garden view (from the previous post) has been my desk top background for the past several days. It really cheers me during our cold, dull winter days :)
