A Bit Like Heaven I'm Sure....Vacation at the Cottage.

Happy Beautiful summer days....

I am excited to be going to be on 3 weeks vacation starting tomorrow at 11:00 a.m.  Can you see the smile on my face?  I know you can... :o)

We are not going away during this time but we'll spend time at the cottage and we'll visit with friends there and have my best friend Kirsti and her hubby spend a night with us also.  There may be day trips while I'm at home as well as catching up on those things I crave to do while I'm at work.  

Here is the way some of the flowers looked at the cottage last week.  We just planted this clematis this year and look at how well its doing in spite of the late summer.  We have to get a proper trellis for it.  Right now its growing madly around a tomato plant holder.  I may just put a trellis behind it as well.
I planted these impatience among the roots of the large maple tree.  It is such a big tree....and so it must be old...but Marc isn't old and he and his brother used to jump over this tree when they were small... :o)
 The flower box in the shop window is doing nicely.  I love the colours we've used this year.  The American flag sits proudly on one end and the Canadian at the other...
 Marc wired a birdhouse I painted a couple of years ago on to an old shovel I found along the way....
No matter what you do this weekend I hope you have a beautiful one  Enjoy.... Judi xoxo

Hi Judi, Thanks for stopping over today. Yes, we had a wonderful time in Maine. It is good to be home where our heart is though.

It sounds like you are going to have a great time getting some R & R with friends and just kicking back and doing what ever you want.Have fun.

I am trying to imagine that tree small enough to jump over. smile. Your flowers are looking great. The clematis is so pretty. Ours is all done and it was so pretty this spring. The bird house on the shovel is fun. A clever idea.

Happy vacation Judi,
Hugs, Jeanne
