Does it? Hasn't it just arrived in our part of the world? How can we make time stetch in the days that do manage to be sunny and warm?

The Bee looks so cute sitting in the windows. I hope all of you (Bee included!) are doing well after Violet's passing. *hugs*


Can't believe it's the end of July already ~ the last couple of days it's been really cool here in Portland (not complaining) and I can feel a change coming with the weather. Still loving when it gets warm in the afternoon tho.


your photos just make my day. sheer delight.


Beautiful! Your world must be so wonderful.

I see Summer is lovely, where you are.
It's nice here, too.


Beautiful photos! I adore the embroidery, it makes me want to rush out and look for mustardy-caramel colored felt. It's funny how the seasons do this to us: we groove along in all their changes and yet each year we are surprised yet again when they start being their intense selves. (Here it's winter and there's a frost to face today as I head to work). Great post!


I looked at that photo of the embroidery and immediately thought of Salley Mavor's "Pocketful of Posies" - it's my absolute favorite collection of nursery rhymes because of the splendid embroidery on each page. I'm quite sure you have, or someone's mentioned it before, but I suppose I'll think of you now when we read it (which is often).

Everything beautiful there at your home. I know what you mean. I was thinking the same thing. Have a beautiful day. : )
