Tuesday Tidbits #177 SUMMERTIME!

June is Here

The thermometer shows cooler temps for us here in NW Pennsylvania and we are loving it! Perfect for outdoor projects, gardening and backyard campfires.

The first of the campfire s’mores were made.

Back Patio

Flowers are planted, hanging baskets are placed and hostas are transplanted at our back patio.

Across from the flowers is our focal point on the patio. Our Potting Bench!

The Potting Bench, which Sweet Man built for me, was styled by me and it’s now the focal point of our patio. I think perhaps that it may be more of a table for cocktails or tea time.


The lilacs are done as well as the flowering bulbs of tulips and daffodils. And now irises, lupines, peonies, columbine and poppies are showing their pretty faces.

Spiderwort and Columbine.
More Columbine.

The gardens and yard have been weeded, trimmed and tidied up. Taking a walk about the yard… gives me a smile. It’s so good for my spirit to see all of God’s Beauty and our hard work that came to fruition.

After all the weeding and gardening… Sweet Man purchased me more garden gloves. There’s just something about new fresh garden gloves!

Boat is in the Water

Summertime is Now Official because the Boat is in the water!

We went for a lovely ride.
