In our area, summer is here, and it is sizzling.
Clutter-free is never possible around here, but I put things away and went to the basics.
The home is simplified for the summer with white sheets, seashells, and slipcovers. Our blossoms and vegetable garden are shielded by umbrellas. Filtered light is enough for our nonnatives in the elevated beds, and hopefully not too much that they need the shade cloth.
Inexpensive white bedding on the porch and in the bedrooms.
I love theses chrysanthemums growing in my garden. I must find different varieties for the future.
My spouse's grandfather, but really mine as well, grew mums for show. This is just an ordinary pink one, but still they are so lovely. I went around pinching his, so he could get the best bloom on a plant. I learned most everything I know about gardening from him, except for what I had to learn when I returned to the desert.
It' is sort of a meditation: a bowl of shells and a frame. It's interesting and relaxing to rearrange.
The little painting is from Sea Washed Living at Seawashed. On the shelves, I like to slip a bouquet made from our garden.
Aprons for the garden....
Umbrellas for the plants...
Thank you for visiting.
I have been doing Instagram more these days, but I am working on a couple of projects for here.
