Summer, Summer, Summer Time!


Hello again dear blog, I hope that all of your holiday weekends and Memorial Day's were well enjoyed. Most likely full of rest and relaxation as well as some good time with family and friends, and of course good old summer cookin'! I always love when Memorial Day roles around since it always reminds me of what I have been missing all winter. The good time with family and friends and the food, that along with time at the beach and outside is what Summer is all about! And while talking about food, I am sure that many can agree that there is something different about Summer food, with the different types of salads, the hot dogs and hamburgers, as well as all the other "grill foods." Summer is the time of the year when food appearance and presentation doesn't matter (at least sometimes ), its just the great taste and the fact that someone you care about made it especially for you and your guests. Automatically when you invite people over for a cook out or barbecue, you know they're not going to show up empty handed, and whether they knock on your door with fruit salad or some hamburger meat, everything is greatly appreciated with our hearts as well as stomachs!
As for my Memorial Day weekend, well it wasn't so restful. Firstly it was incredibly humid out as well as above 82 all weekend, which made what I had to do even more horrible. Reinstalling a new shower and buying a new washer was on my weekend's agenda. So I spent my weekend cleaning up dusty drywall debris out of the bathroom, while also helping install a new washer which we needed to get. Finally on Monday, my family went over my best friend Karen's house since she was having a cook out. We enjoyed ribs, hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, tomato pie, and loads of desserts. Yummo, that was a good time! I brought Metayo with me, and he was enjoying all the attention as well! Anyhoo, the images I am showing you today are of some GORGEOUS flowers I cut from my grandmothers garden on Sunday. I have been patiently waiting for her peonies to bloom for the past few weeks since mine are late bloomers, and finally those sweet smelling buds bloomed! The roses were a surprise, since as I was washing off the peonies to get the ants off, I looked outside and saw those beauties! I cut three, but unfortunately the one lost some of its petals, and the other one did as well. But not to fret, I was able to get a good picture of the last one (which was actually my favorite!) Okay, well as for now, that's all that I have, but I wish you some fun time out in the garden, and of course quality time with your family and friends!

Mmmmm ... I love peonies but won't dare bring them inside because of the ants. shudder Roses, however, are a completely different story! Your flowers look lovely and I can almost smell them! ♥

Peonies don't grow here so I am especially enjoying yours!

I don't know if it is the hot dry air we have in the summer that feels like someone opened the oven door, or the alkaline soil, and water shortage.

Your photos are beautiful!
