Good morning Cottage Fix friends. We have flowers here looking pretty on the window sill in our living room, fresh blue hydrangeas from the market. I’m on a blue kick at the moment, which is really no different from any other time I guess.
I went thinking pink and came home with blue. And my daughter sweet talked me into sunflowers for the guest bathroom too. She really had to lay it on thick – wink. I’m such a sucker for flowers! I’ll share those with you next time.
I’m so happy not to be talking about curtains and drapery for a change. I believe I sorted that problem all out and I’m feeling so much lighter today (in my mind that is, not by the scale – shucks!). I kept the toile and lace in the family room and went back to the soft white sheers on the sun porch. And to reward myself for all of that hard work and decision making I went to the flower market with my daughter. Grin.
We had a few errands to run and one of them happened to be near my favorite place in town to buy flowers. They offer such a nice variety and great prices too, we came home with hydrangeas and sunflowers all for just over 10 bucks. Not as cheap as snipping them from the garden, but there’s nothing blooming out their right now. Hot pink blooms are on the way soon. Yay!
And thinking about the garden, Honey is cracking the whip out there lately let me tell you. We are running weed liner in the back flower bed and topping it with fresh pine straw. It’s not the fair weather gardening I’m accustomed to, that’s for sure. Oh no, this is hard core, sore the next day kind of work; in the thick of the weeds and hot muggy air. My domestic goddess isn’t wild over the thought of calloused hands, or sweat for that matter. We put in three to four days so far and I think we’re about half way there. It really is looking good though.
See you soon.
