Hola Cottage Fix friends! We’re heading to the beaches of North Carolina tomorrow for some sand and surf, but mostly sand. It should be fun. We rented a big beach cottage right on the water and all of our family will be there. The East Coast Surf Competition is happening this week in Virginia Beach and it’s supposed to continue next week in the Outer Banks. So hopefully we’ll see lots of hang ten dudes and dudettes practicing.
These are the bright and sunny sunflowers my daughter talked me into. They really cheer up the guest bath and say “hello summer, so glad you’re here.” Sunflowers are usually her first choice at the flower market, and I usually pass them right by. But they are so vibrant and happy, we might try growing them in the garden next summer.
When we’re traveling south I notice some of the homes along the way grow them right in front of there houses, we don’t have enough sunlight out front for that to work here. It looks really whimsical and summery though. We might have a spot out back where they’ll peek over the fence top.
Hanging on to summer as long as possible…
