Happy Dance: The Window Box is Back!

This window box is freshly planted, so everything will get fuller and taller, but it’s quite a nice start! I love the various colors of purple and white. Purple, white and green is a nice color combination. Soft, calming, and happy. I’m thrilled that this window box is back in its rightful place…

Happy Plants Thriving In The Sun

Spring Flowers – Charleston, SC

Pretty flowers, aren’t they? These were in a flower box as I passed by at a store we frequent. Their flowers are gorgeous and this was no exception. We recently planted a flower box at our house (stay tuned for Monday’s post). We used trailing petunias, mint, French lavender and a tall plant with green and interesting small purple flowers. It’s only been planted a few days but is growing like crazy! It looks happy, whew!

A Walk on the Wild Side 🐊🐍🦅

Birds Hanging Out in the Tree

Morning walks are the best. Especially if you get moving about the time the sun hits the golden stage at sunrise (or at sunset if you’re not an early riser). There is no better color than that of sunlight on anything. Just look at that amazing blue sky and the sculpture like shape of the tree. #beautiful

What to read? I’ve got a stack of books!

The book lineup right now…

Who loves to read? I’m curious… of those of you who love to read, how many of you grew up reading? I cannot imagine not wanting to travel to faraway places from wherever I am. Reading offers such an escape. It enlightens you and makes you a better person I think. Books can make you compassionate, well traveled, knowledgeable no matter what time in history, or it can simply transport you to another time or place. Whether that place is the beach or different countries.

Marshall Point Lighthouse – Port Clyde, Maine

Marshall Point Lighthouse – Port Clyde, Maine

Beautiful, right? Gorgeous sunsets! This is one that I only caught the tail end of – yet still… so much beauty in one area! The islands, the water, the working (and playing) boats. The fabulous Marshall Point Lighthouse with so much history. Does it look familiar? Have you seen the movie Forrest Gump? This lighthouse was in the movie

Missing this view…

The view from a cottage in Port Clyde, Maine…

I think we can all agree that 2020 was a hell of a year. We stayed right here, still haven’t been anywhere. I know it’s a small price to pay, but it hasn’t been easy. I cannot wait to get to MI to see my family. I can’t wait for them to get here to see us, and I am certainly missing this view from a cottage we rented in Port Clyde, Maine. The sound of the surf. I want it back. Right now, please 😉
