Sunshine and Breezes

A lot of people wouldn't agree with me but one of things I really enjoy doing is hanging out clothes on the clothesline. I have memories of my mom doing just that, so it is something I grew up with. I love the fresh air smell on the clothes that you just can't get from a dryer! Have you ever hung your sheets out on a breezy day and then put them on your bed again??? Mmmm...sleeping with a fresh air fragrance. To me, nothing like it! There is just something so refreshing about it.

As I take the load from the washer, place it in my basket and head out the door with my clothespins I breathe in the mix of fresh air and the scent of clean clothes. I once read about sheets, "those dried on the clothesline outside have a feel and smell that cannot be bottled!" It is so true. So, yes I love that part of my life...especially on a breezy day.

These pictures were taken about 20 years mom's clothesline.

Petunias and Hot Summer Weather

It's been two years since I have updated my blog. I had gotten busy with my Etsy shop which took a lot of my time. Just lately, I started missing writing on my blog. So, here I am with my first post in two years! 
 I was looking back at my early summer pictures and was surprised at how much my petunias have grown. the above picture was taken in early June. 

Here it is late August and they have grown so much. They've needed a lot of water and tender loving care during our very hot summer weather (over 100 degrees most days). 

A few times, I thought they might not make it. Glad they did, as I love looking out my window at their beauty.

Hello September!

Hard to believe that we are leaving summer behind already. But, welcome September! Inching ever closer to my favorite season of the year.

September days are here With summer's best of weather And, autumn's best of cheer
