Summer is starting to sizzle…

There are about forty-fifty lavender plants

on the new hillside in front of a young olive tree…

backed at intervals by cypresses and white roses…

Not yet a year old (last year here)…

summerNicotiana…waiting to be planted…an annual that lends

a sweet scent and soft glow to a summer evening…

I have this in a lime green in the lower garden…more info here

textiles

Made my own case for my Ipad 2…

Not the work horse of my office computer…but

great for looking at blogs and reading the news

shoulder to shoulder with my husband.

 I especially love how easily I can flip through my blog

archives on it…at this time unique to WordPress blogs…

French Flea market finds

Still finding big and little gems…

embroidery

As much as I love the hunt..

the find…I also enjoy pulling

together the bits and pieces of what

I already have…

antique etchings

Until something special pops up…

antique French fabric

Hiking the hills and hitting the Farmer’s markets…

Keeping up with hats and suncreen…

Love these tips at Eating Well here

Will stop in from time to time to send postcards

Hope you are having a wonderful Summer!

XOXO
