Summer is the perfect time for relaxing in the backyard. You just need a comfy spot, a cool drink and a pretty setting. My hubby the Cottage Guy claims I really never sit down for more than a few minutes. I pop up to pull a weed, deadhead a plant or water a drooping plant.
Here I'm all ready to sit down and flip thru my magazines, hum I forgot my ice tea, oh there is my camera I'll just snap a few photos…. About 45 minutes later I finally sit down. So here is a look at my pretty setting.
I got this lounge chair last year at an antique show, it was black and didn't really fit in with the rest of the colors back here. Nothing a little painting wouldn't fix. Don't you like the curvy detail in the wheels?
I love these bright pink hydrangeas, I believe they are called Burning Embers.
This is my view when I do finally sit down, a beautiful row of Endless Summer hydrangeas.
We can cosy up to a fire at night.
Next week, I'll take you around the corner of the house and show you my newest garden area.
And yes I do need a blanket, it has still been in the high 60's or low 70's, plus it gets cold under the shade of our big trees. Wouldn't you like to come and sit with me for a bit?
