It's summer, hip hip hooray!
I've been swamped this month and now wrapping up some projects means enjoying summer.
I am sooo happy to be here right now.
We welcomed the summer solstice with music & light.
From fairy twinkles to candles flickers...
I've since spent every evening in the garden.
It's been so hot, but evenings up here cool off well enough to enjoy being outside.
The lanterns and lights glow beautifully adding to the magic of the night sky.
Flowers bob around and pups join in the fun.
It's like a little light oasis tucked into the darkest night garden.
Candles drip and flicker.
We swing and sip berry and lime drinks.
We dance and bask in the beauty of life.
Love these moments.
The lanterns hang from a volunteer tree that popped up right in the middle of my garden.
A seed must have floated in, and presto, a tree.
It's 2 years old and growing faster than fast.
Tucked under the canopy of the mesquite tree.
We'll see how that goes.
I just couldn't stand to remove something that found its way here.
So, a big tree it is.
Gifting limbs for hanging lanterns and shade for hydrangeas and roses.
Candles flicker in the breeze.
Casting golden hues.
Drip, drip, plop.
One goes out as smoke swirls about.
Tunes wafting through tree leaves.
What more can we ask for really, but simple pleasures as such?
I've sped through another month in life.
Time to put my house back together.
Get back to my own life after so many projects.
Catch up time.
And bonus, have some massive tea party fun.
It's about that time.
Happy summer, it's here!!!
How are you doing out there?
It's crrrrazy hot here in the desert.
