Palest Pink Geranium Dress

Our darling girl sewed this Geranium Dress (with her grandmother's oversight) in one day.  I am so proud of her!  The pale pink linen is so lovely and the pattern was easy for our girl to follow.  It is wonderful to see our daughter create such beautiful and useful things.  She will soon be helping her aunt sew two more dresses just like this one for the other two lady cousins in our family.  I can't wait to take photographs of the three of them together!

It would be lovely to sleep in a wild cherry tree all white with bloom in the moonshine."

Each day the children spend several hours playing and swimming in the pool.  I brought our outdoor pillows from the front porch swing to the chairs on the patio and set up a nice little oasis in the shade to keep cool and comfortable while watching my little fish.

Rose Petal Bird Bath

I pruned the spent roses from our bushes this afternoon and floated them in the fresh water of the birdbath.  I got this idea from an online friend who places her dying roses in the arms of her Saint Francis garden statue.   There is still so much beauty in these little flowers, so it makes me very happy to continue to enjoy their loveliness for a few more days.

Monday Sickies

Our poor girl woke up this morning and was quite ill with a stomach bug and spent the day resting and sleeping.  Thankfully, the sickness seems short-lived...  she is weak, but feels better this evening.
