Seen from the road

Here's the house as seen from the road. It's got its summer face on, meaning that there are flowers in the kitchen window box and a parasol on the deck. Looking at the photo, I realize I should have put some flowers in the loft window boxes, too. Maybe next year.

It might look summery in this photo, but looks can be deceiving.

This morning the sky is leaden and everything is wet. It's been raining off and on through the night. Plants, especially weeds, are loving this weather. They're all lush and green. But it's still cold. The wind is from the north. Brrr. The weather gurus say it might get warm again by the weekend.


  1. From the photo, you would think all is sunshine and happiness.

  2. Your window box flowers are very perky! A nice color complementing the red parasol.

  3. When I saw the picture, I immediately thought, “Oh, summer has finally arrived!” So sorry it’s still eluding you but it’s a lovely photo of your house.

  4. Yay for the red umbrella. It looks great there. And it's not too late to put some flowers in the boxes upstairs -- I'm still contemplating mine.

  5. mitch, a recently rare break in the cloud cover.

    kiwi, they do seem to be doing well!

    bettyann, I'm getting tired of it feeling like March. It's almost July!

    emm, we'll see. :)

  6. Very welcoming! Yes, there's still time for the loft flower box! The flowers really are striking with that red parasol!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
