Summer Time!

This Hydrangea sure is a fighter.
After not having bloomed for 3 or 4 Summers, we tore it up and out.
Thinking we got all the roots and every bit of it.
To our surprise it started growing back in early Spring.
And when I got back from my last trip, I saw one little bundle of those beautiful little green buds.
Today it looks like this.

And a goode first day of Summer to all.

Been to the Beach, Virginia Beach that is...

It was much to hot and smoky to actually go to the beach. Fires in North Carolina smoked up the place a little bit, notice the picture above.
So I just did some browsing around town in the hot hot hot temps, and payed a visit to an old friend.
I did go to the usual Antique shoppes. Like Barrett Street Antiques (pictures just b
But it was to hot to focus.

I did however stop at a sweet little antique/fruit stand on the way home.
Here are a few things I saw...

And This is what I took home with me...
The Chair below,
I'll share later how it looks in my own yard.

Oh, I almost forgot all about this...

I also found this sweet little Birds Nest in this tiny iron skillet.

The store owner said 3 little eggs were there, they hatched and she quietly checked on them from time to time and then one day they were gone. The back porch at this shoppe had sweet little birds nest all around.

I added a couple wooden blue eggs. I've been taking pictures all around the house, looking for the right spot to keep it.

Once I saw a Bird...

Two room Condo for Rent.

A perfect perch...

Not to far from the trees...

Roof looks good.

Checking all the accomadations.

I'll take it...

Once I Saw a Little Bird

Once I saw a little bird Come hop, hop, hop.

So I cried, "Little bird,Will you stop, stop, stop?"

I was going to the window To say, "How do you do?"

But he shook his little tail, And away he flew.

I was so inspired by this sweet bird, I went to work on some new Bird Charm Bracelets over the weekend. I've just added them to my ETSY shoppe-just around the corner...


I Saw RED...
