Saturated Hydrangea hues….
begin their burst of summer color…
I couldn’t resist these Bella Notte Deluxe Marie ruffled
pillow cases…slipping them over my French chairs on
the way out to weekend gardening….
Nepeta Mussinii Six Hills Giant…
Catmint…a haze of dusky lavender blue
on the upper level of my latest gardening project
First coat of watered down paint on the new project’s
lattice fence…a dark gray with zinc blue under tones
C2 Paints Stomp
is amended, new lavender can be added in rows in front of olive tree and cypresses…
I love Linda Merrill’s story of hearing her father’s whispers as she remodeled her kitchen here.
My father is so often in my thoughts…I can imagine him sitting on the rock wall beside me on this
lovely cool June weekend. A wonderful, warm man…we all loved his stories, the comfort of his
laughter. We saw how hard he worked and how much joy he found in life…a wonderful lesson
to pass down to your children.
Happy Father’s day to all our wonderful fathers!
