Friday sunflowers and a case of bad luck

Hola Cottage Fix Crew! Not much in the way of foofing going on for me these days in my little section of cyber-land. It’s been a case of bad luck here with one thing after another going wrong for what feels like an eternity now. Cars breaking down, appliances breaking down, and to top it all off, three out of four family members breaking down—what the heck is going on! We’re nursing various sports injuries, and I was stuck on […]

garden hydrangeas

Salutations and happy summer! Our summer garden is in full swing and the hydrangeas are blooming a variety of colors this year. From deep purple to classic blue, they are one of my favorite flowers, especially to cut and bring inside. I picked a couple of new blooms in lime green to add to this bouquet too. One was on it’s way to turning purple and the other blue. So I did some investigating about hydrangea color… Can you manipulate […]

Friday flowers ~ garden pickings

Happy Friday Cottage Fix Crew! How ’bout this scrappy collection of garden pickings I rustled together into a bouquet of sorts. Grin. It stormed like crazy here Wednesday with hail pelting down and buckets of rain pouring from our rooftop. I went around the house checking for water coming in to the sound of the clanking ice. No water! Phew. Apparently trees went down all over the neighborhood, so we were lucky here to just have flying yard debris. Our […]

If I don’t keep myself busy during these long spells of dreary weather I’ll sink into a lull until the sunshine returns.  I brought home these peonies and I’m showing them off today for Friday flowers, love those fluffled, ruffled blooms! These are in pinks […]

cottage fix Friday flowers

Hola Cottage Fix crew! I’m blogging in today under glorious sun filled skies and bright crisp air. The traditional yo yo temperatures we’re accustomed to here near the coast of Virginia are in full swing. Our weather people must stay on their toes that’s for sure. I even heard a mention of flurries in the forecast for later tonight—it was almost 80 degrees this past Wedneday. Oh yes, the floppin hoppers and toboggan worn all in the same week, a […]

Friday flowers lingering garden blooms

Happy Friday! I’m blogging in today with a collection of lingering blooms from our back garden. It’s so nice to step out and still be greeted by a sea of bright color this late in the season. All the rain we’re getting along with the mild temperatures, things just keep on blooming. This weekend is forecast to be a rainy blustery few days with hurricane Matthew looming to our South. I hope everyone down there stays safe! I painted the trim […]

cottage fix Friday flowers

Happy Friday Cottage Fix friends! Today’s bouquet is more special than most, accompanied you see by a champagne toast! Honey and I are celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary tomorrow. Yay! When I think back on the spring we first met and started dating, it feels like just yesterday, but somehow a dream. It was so many years ago that a handsome young musician followed me around a college campus wooing me with gifts of strawberry kiwi Snapple and inviting me […]
