 The hollyhocks are blooming!
Aren't they just lovely?
Such an old-fashioned flower - in the best possible sense.
 When I went out to snap these pics it was so humid my lens kept fogging up!
I think it gave the photos a rather pleasing softness though.
 Every time a walk past these beauties I find myself singing "Hollyhock, hollyhock, oh holly hollyhock!" to the tune of Lollipop. haha! ;)


What do you have blooming?

this girl has nothing to say...

Yet again
life is keeping me busy.
Seems to me this Summer will be quite a full one.
No completed projects here.
Plenty of plans & ideas.
Yet no time to bring them to fruition.
If only I were a better planner.
{Adds that to ever-growing list of things to do. Then scoffs.} ;)
I hope you're all having a splendid June thus far.
I know I sure am.

this summer...

I think it's pretty universally accepted that Memorial Day marks the first day of Summer.
{Well, at least it does in our family!}
It could be that or the Beach Boys tunes I've been enjoying lately that are putting me in a summertime frame of mind.
So, here's how I plan to have "Fun, fun, fun!" this summer:
Have some fun in the sun with my friends...
 Go berry pickin'!
Then make something delicious with the little gems...

 Blow bubbles...

 Wear gingham...
 Lots. of. gingham...

 Go to the carnival with my family...
Maybe ride on the tilt-a-whirl with my sisters... :D
Go on a picnic!
Go camping...
{even if it's just in the backyard}
Catch fireflies...
{& then let them go, of course}
So, those are just a few things I hope to do this Summer...
What are you looking forward to doing this sweet Summertime?
