Summertime smells and sights...

Such a sweet heady smell that flows into the living room from these lilacs...

Decided to hang this wrought iron hanger between the doors on the front of the garage...A lovely welcome when returning home ...
My Mr. Wonderful made this birdhouse years ago, and we just gave the roof a new paint job this spring! Fun to freshen things up...

I'm a rock nut... Do you like rocks?...

One of the little dowels came off so I thought I'd stick a golf tee in there...See how long before the golf king notices!!!! ...Just a few summertime things...xoxo~Kathy.


  1. Oh, we're kindred spirits! I absolutely love rocks! So therefore I absolutely stopped in my tracks when I saw this cute birdhouse with rocks! Cute as it can be!

  2. I love all your pretty flowers and the way they are arranged. I wish flowers would do that well where I live. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Love the golf tee ... your arrangements & rocks are wonderful. TTFN ~Marydon

  4. Kathy, I came by to look at your tablescape (which was oohhhhh soooo cute, by the way!!!) but I had to comment on how lovely your flowers are! Those lilacs are beautiful, and I bet they smell divine. I bought geraniums for the first time this year - dead headed once, and now nothing. I'm so disappointed. I wish mine looked like yours ... anyway, great great great! All the way around!

  5. This birdhouse is absolutely gorgeous. I don't think I have seen anything quite like it!

  6. Hello!

    I just found your blog via Julio's.

    Your blog is justso lovely.


  7. So beautiful. Things don't grow like that here. Too hot. Thanks for the comment on my running blog. As you can see, I haven't done very well with it since I was up in Maryland. I'm determined to get back at it though. Yall have a safe and fun journey.

  8. You take beautiful photos! I come visit just to see what looks like a magazine! Liz

  9. I am not really sure how i found your lovely blog; but i know it wont be the last.

    Like you, I simply want my visitors to feel inspired and not stressed or having the feeling they need to click out of there FAST :)

    I spent some time enjoying your other posts and look forward to another visit soon.

    TTFN~~Claudia ♥

  10. Hi Kathy, love the birdhouse - the rock front is super! Hey your flowers are wonderful and I agree about the wrought iron - perfect place for it. You should join Tootsies Fertlizer Fridays to show off your flowers once a week. It's a fun thing!
    Thanks so much for stopping by and for the wonderful compliment you gave me about my posts. I'm so thrilled! I'm sorry I'm late getting here - actually I was here before but had to leave before commenting - I've had my Grandsons Tuesday through today and had to rush off for some reason having to do with them.
    Anyway I've enjoyed myself and will be back to snoop around some more! Linda

  11. Thank you for visiting my blog Now, I can follow your wonderful blog! You are so very talented. Your garden photos are amazing. Do lilacs bloom there into JUNE??? I would die if I could have lilacs more than 2 weeks out of the year!

  12. Thank you for visiting my blog I am so happy you invited me to your blog; it is beautiful! Your garden photos are amazing. Do your lilacs bloom in JUNE? I would love that. Lilacs are my favorite flower and mine only bloom for 2 weeks. Your blog song is mine and my husband's song!!!
