Cabin time....


Well, it has taken us a while to get settled but we are almost there. We took a trip to Flowerbed Farm just to look but of course that never happens.


I always take my camera because her flowers and vignettes are beautiful.


These are the glass plates and glasses I didn't buy.....silver overlay on amethyst. Just beautiful.



Then we went to The Sweet Laurel for my garden flowers. Dee arranges plants is containers in a marvelous way and I set up an area right outside the porch.


Sitting on the glider, looking at the lake and my garden and knitting or reading give me strength not to mention much pleasure. Often the loons are making their wonderful cries in the background.



This afternoon I shall sit on the glider and knit.


I shall look at the herbs in the window boxes. One is planted just with basil. The other has rosemary, parsley, thyme, and cilantro. I need to get some tarragon and we will be set for the summer.






Have a wonderful week!

Carol, such lovely pictures. When you mentioned the loons....."On Golden Pond" came to mind. Enjoy your paradise. Your other home right now is so humid with lots of rain and thunderstorms. Can't wait to get out of here in a couple of weeks.

Looks like you are getting all settled in at the cabin and ready for summer. I'm never ready for summer! It is nearing time for me to go into hibernation! :D :D

Your beautiful containers right beside the porch look wonderful. How lovely to have a glider to sit and knit on while listening to the loons...you're a lucky lady Carol!

You are here again? How wonderful. I imagine that it does take time settling in and getting everything all neat and tidy again. Lovely photos... I'm so glad that the weather has turned for you. You brought the sunshine!

You must be at your summer place now. Your flowers are so pretty and I'm sure a pleasure to enjoy every day from your porch glider. It sounds very relaxing. :) Blessings, Pamela

Your flowers are gorgeous and I know they are wonderful to look at while you are knitting. I have always loved gliders on a porch. We have one on our deck and I love to sit in it.
Hugs,
Donna

It's so nice to come back to a beloved place, and then to add all the little touches to dress it up for the summer. Enjoy!

What lovely flowers you have. The color of those coleus is stunning. Enjoy the view of the lake and have a wonderful summer!

Lucky you to be back in Maine, your flowers are beautiful.
I can picture you on the glider, soaking it all in.
Welcome home, my dear.
