I have been sick the last few days, so this post sort of lacks a focus (I’m still feeling pretty lousy). All the same, I did not want these photos and memories to be trapped in my iPhone for months (or forever) as I move on to other topics. These photos represent what the middle of June has been like. This beautiful month which seemed like it was lasting awhile, is now fleeing away quite quickly. I’m trying to hold on to each moment, as I know we probably won’t live in this beautiful place for another June.
A flowering dogwood at the farmer’s market in town.
Our lovely screen porch that has seen much sitting in the past couple weeks.
My first ever pottery creation on the wheel. I started a class last week, I think I’m in love…
There have been plenty of thunderstorms, which leave a wet silence and beautiful mist when they go, interrupted only by the trilling of happy tree frogs.
I’m trying to keep tiny fresh flowers by my bedside all summer long, and trying to drink wine more often – it’s a simple luxury I often forget about
The first “harvest” from our garden! A handful of crisp, yummy lettuce.
I love putting antiques to use! I found this amazing old tin at a local shop. It is now my lunchbox!
It’s quite a pretty present if I do say so myself! I gave this to my sister in law for her graduation last weekend.
The poppies bloomed! One of my favorite flowers. Now I know to admire them outside because the petals fall off of them in a day or two when cut.
So there they are, some bits and pieces of the middle of June. I love capturing all the little things; making them into something special.
