Enjoying Summer.

It's been a busy weekend, so far, here at my cottage at the lake.
Zoey, and Sadie are spending some time with us while their parents take a trip to Traverse City on a wine tasting tour for their anniversary.

 The girls have been playing with the dogs, Bella, and Bosco the entire time they have been here. They have been in, and out of the playhouse for two days...having the time of their lives.

 I've been cutting flowers, and putting them in small pitchers, and bottles the last few days. The girls LOVE helping me with the gardens while they are here.

In just a few more days the gardens will be bursting with blooms!!! The Hollyhocks are getting ready to blossom. The roses are already blooming, as you can see...but so many buds are ready to open.
The cottage garden is going to be in full bloom by the 4th of July!! 
Time to see where my two little darlings are.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.


  1. Sounds like a lovely beginning to summer at the Lakehouse. Your flowers are just gorgeous.

  2. Sounds like you're having a great weekend! Beautiful flowers and I'm lovin' your new header:@)

  3. Perfect weekend weather to spend time in your gorgeous garden, Debbie! Your roses and peonies are just so beautiful in those tiny vases. The pale pinks are my fav...of course. :) Enjoy the day with the munchkins! Love you!

  4. I know those kiddo's can keep you busy, but it's a GOOD busy! I love all of your flowers and you are right, we do share that same color rose. Hubby surprised me with two new rose bushes for my arbor...squeal! I will post about it soon. They are called Eden Climber...ever hear of that? I just ordered a book to help me out, growing roses is something new for this old bird!


  5. I love your blooms! It is so wonderful to enjoy them this time of year. Children and gardens go together really well. Have a great 4th!

  6. Sounds like a fun day at the cottage. What are you ever going to do without it? Hope you have a good weekend with the grands and that you take lots of photos of all your blooms when they happen. ;)

  7. Your flowers are just fantastic! If the header photo is any indication of your flowers, they are just beautiful!!

    We have a dog named Bella also. She is the light of our life.

    Enjoy the little ones.
