Welcome summer to the country...

White wicker on front porches sends messages clear and sound...
summer's again upon us and all 'round laughter's found...

...while porches and sunrooms spring to life, red geraniums announce to the world...SUMMER...

...harvest tables and church pews long for the dinner bells of summer...buttery sweet corn and ripe red tomatoes drizz'ling down my chin...

...let's catch butterflies and katydids and while away the hours...

...on a powder blue chest of drawers, bouquets of hyacinth await a cooling waft of summer...

...a cascade of yo yos hanging in a summer breeze...

...come on...let's play in the country...Sister's Garden & Bloom...

What a cute white chair in front of the dresser. I like the toy barn too. Someone went to a lot of work making that fence.

The little fence caught my eye, too - it would be perfect around a small Christmas tree...

I never grow tired of seeing what Sisters Garden and Bloom has to offer, especially since it is ever changing. Thanks Sharon! I am heading to CR towards the end of the week. Tracy wants to check out Zumiez. I'll tell that grandkid hi...

Always enjoy these magical glimpses into Sisters! I will never be able to see it! So content myself looking carefully at all the wonderful photos you present! And your words always add that extra special feeling that we can take a little walk back in time for awhiles! A great journey!

I'd love to come and visit you. I'd start with shopping on the porch!

This is why you and the folks at Sisters are now part of Cat Daddy's kittens! He comes home and goes straight for your latest post. You are his new catnip!!! Should I be worried?
I love the farm table and bench...wish I had a porch big enough to put 'em on!

Can't decide what I like best in this post. Guess that is what keeps me coming back time and again. You have a real knack at capturing the moment and sharing it here.
