We’ve had a very hot, dry summer this year in Ohio!
I’ve had to water my roses & hydrangeas every single morning.
I go out bright & early to avoid the heat & sun.
They have rewarded me with tons of beautiful blooms for gathering all summer long.
Even my lilac tree beside the Gazebo’s decking, has bloomed for a second time this year!
I got a kick out of this one little branch, peeking through the railings.
The hydrangeas have been beautiful this year but are starting to wane a little now.
They’ll be just as pretty dried, though.
I cut them & hang them upside down to dry in the basement.
My sweet Ms. C. loves PINK, so I try to plant as many shades of it I can find.
Geraniums, petunias, roses…you name it.
With two older brothers, anything that was PINK belonged to her.
As a baby, she would point & say “MY PINK!” anytime she saw something that color.
It is still her favorite color!
I’ve been keeping cool by sewing each day in the downstairs level.
I created & monogrammed 5 polka-dot pockets, which I then sewed onto contrasting colored t-shirts for Ms. C.
She took them home before I could snap a photo…darn it! They turned out cute & her phone fits into the pocket perfectly.
I plan to make a few pockets for my nightgowns, so I’ll have a place to keep my phone on me in the evenings or early morning.
I worry about falling, now that I live alone, so I try to keep my phone on me at all times.
Thanks for stopping by The Gazebo House today. I’ll come visit you soon!
