This week is the official beginning of our summer vacation. The Littles have finished their school lessons, and, although learning continues in many ways, we are all ready to lay aside the textbooks for a while and enjoy the warm, sunny season that is upon us. I was able to linger a little longer over my coffee this morning, enjoying a lovely stroll through my gardens. It seems that everywhere I look something is blooming...roses, irises, lilacs, creeping geraniums, lilies...the yard is alive with color, and I just can't seem to get enough of it.
Our home was quite a hub of activity this past weekend with visits from two of my sisters, teen-age sleep-overs, and Father's Day celebrations. A peaceful, early morning walk through my gardens was just what I this mama needed.
