Sweet Summer Time

It's a Hot Tamale kind of day today!

The kind of day when you could be tempted not to leave the air conditioning.

But the view outside is so much clearer.

The locusts are singing just like I remember from childhood.

I just love summer!!

Hope you are having a wonderful day today.


  1. Oh I agree it has been hot the past few days...but I still want to go out and enjoy it...persperation and all.

    Your flowers are so pretty...mine are doing great...some of the hosta that got beat by the hail back several weeks ago look a bit ragged though.

    Enjoy the weekend...I will be in your town Monday and Tuesday to care for my 16 month old grand daughter.

  2. Wonderful photos. Love the red chairs and it is sweltering here so I am staying in for now.

  3. So pretty Stacy! It is storming off and on here today...so we are hiding out inside!

    Happy Friday!

  4. It is hot today, but the humidity is not bad. So I can stand going out for a bit. Yesterday it stormed all morning.

  5. I don't know where you live, but it is hot everywhere! I am in Orlando Florida.......Lord, we are talking unbearable, it never cools off not even at night!


  6. You always have the sweetest posts, Stacey! I love summer...it's like any other season with it's ups and downs. Our weather finally cooled off and it is perfect, in the 70's.

    Love your Adirondack chairs and the pot in the wicker basket. SO cute!

  8. I love summer too...as long as it doesn't get to 100!! I thank God for good cold air conditioning especially in July and August! Love those red chairs on the lawn..so fun and your red flowers are so pretty! I'm a sucker for red flowers..they are my favorite! Stay cool!

  9. Pretty pics..Stacey! I will not be one to complain about the dog days of Summer...but I make up in the Winter...because I complain EVERY DAY about the cold!!! Just can't stand it! Hope all is well with you Stacey and that you are enjoying the Summer!
