Lately, mornings have been extremely foggy, so much so, visibility is less than one hundred feet and driving is slow going. The McCoy vase I’ve had so long I can’t remember any details…whether I bought it or someone gave it to me…it’s my favorite though and, generally, there are always flowers in it. Today they are wild Queen Anne’s lace, wild sweet pea and a few fern leaves. Perhaps there are those who would decry such an arrangement, because preferring roses, orchids or other hot house type flowers. Around here, we prefer the untamed beauty of nature because it fits our lifestyle and wild flowers are sturdy and have been around much longer than we. The flower arrangement follows us around – sun room to kitchen to back porch to front porch. That vase is so well traveled the next step will be to apply for a passport!
The Shabby Chic Cottage is hosting a Thursday DIY party and
, since I haven’t anything else to do, I’m partying along with everyone else. Please visit her blog, it’s purty, and check out the other party goers.
It’s time to feed the crowd, man and beastie alike, so will say good-bye for now. We’ve passed the high point of the year and are slowly sliding toward shorter days. Yes, I do notice these things. It’s hard not to when I’m awake and out of bed before the sun rises and I begrudge the shortening of sun light. God forgive me but I do.
Blessings ~ DIM projects (are there any other kind?) ~ breathing deeply of pure, clean air ~ sunshine and clouds in the sky ~ sturdy, beautiful furniture ~ wildflowers ~
