Summer Solistice

Hello everyone,
     Well, today is the first day of summer and the longest day of the year. I love all the seasons but there is definitely something special about summertime here on the Island.

Do you remember the new vintage shop Time worn Treasures & Antiques that I shared with you last week? The coal scuttle above was one of the treasures that I found there. It is perfect with a big bouquet but it will also be lovely planted with annuals.The lupins grow wild here in ditches and we live on a country road that is lined with them. My husband and I threw seeds of them along the ditch a few years ago and they are spreading nicely so I picked a few for a bouquet. The old chair that I love came from Coulson's a few years ago. Together they make a pretty picture don't you think?

I also bought this lovely urn from Lori at Timeworn Treasures & Antiques.
and the little angel.

 So today it is goodbye spring (I did enjoy you)and welcome summer! We have several tours coming up so today I am  busy getting ready for them but the peonies are popping daily and the roses too so I hope to have some time with my camera so I can give you a garden tour also.

Hope you have the best summer ever!!!

Thank you for visiting and welcome once again to new and old followers.
