June Days

Gardenia or Camellia, not sure?
There are lots of palm trees in California.
These purple flowers were growing on the lovely church grounds.
There are many Robins in my town.
I may or may not have bought Jess a wedding gift at Sur La Table.  ; )
Pink roses at the rose garden I visit sometimes.
I got a surprise in the mail from my blog friend, Jemma.  It was from a give-away she was having and I won.  It looks even prettier in real life.  Tiny diamonds on the corner of the print and on the perfume bottle.  Jemma, I found just the place for it, right on my vanity table.  Thank you, dear friend.
These yellow lilies are in the front of my house.
Strangest tree.....the branches were reddish.

It's nice to see these on mornings when I get my coffee.

Just bought this magazine.  Love homemade brownies.  : )
Summer days are here again.

Oh what a lovely print, from Jemma! Oh the loveliness of an old fashioned perfume atomizer... :-))))

And all your photos are a perfect ode to June.

Beautiful photos. Congratulations on your win. I just bought that same magazine yesterday. Haven't decided if it was worth $10.99 or not yet.????

Sheri, I loved all the pictures. The flowers are so pretty. The purple irises would my mom smile. She loved tham and lilacs better than any other flower. Glad you are getting out and about to enjoy the weather. It is starting to be a great summer. Blessings, xoxo, love, Susie

Dear Sheri, I just left a comment, in my blog, to reply to your comment. Which I don't usually do but.... So I copy it here, below...
Dear Sheri, I am not leaving blogging!!!!

I am leaving my angst and concern and worry!!!

You will see many more flower photos here, in the future. While I train myself, to concentrate on the beauty, in my own little plot.

I am a very slow learner. I have to discipline myself, to leave "the news" and everyone's issues... By nature, I seem to want-to-right-all-wrongs. How silly is that? Very silly. And I will convince myself! :-)

But no, I am not leaving blogging or IG. :-)

But now, I am wondering? Which blog friend said Good Bye? You know you "have" to tell me, or I may expire from "nosiness"!!!!

Hugs, Tessa. Who is still off with the faeries...

Hi Sheri,
Gosh I love that Robin photo, they just warm my heart. Congrats on your win and wishing you an enjoyable weekend.


Looks like the perfect way to spend the afternoon, reading that GREAT magazine and eating a homemade brownie. YUM.

Hello sweetness! I can see you are enjoying the hazy dazy days of summer like me. No sweeter has summer been in my adult life than now. I see more, I hear more, I appreciate more. Those flowers, so fleeting and for me, they teach me a lesson: LOOK NOW. ENJOY NOW. The peonies I had loved so are all gone, and my current crush is hydrangeas and pink climbing roes. Oh Sheri, you'd love them!

And isn't Jemma the sweetest? Enjoy your evening sweet Sheri. Anita

We had a long summer and not long gone into winter but I miss the warmth of summer and the long lazy days.

So many lovely things, Sheri. How on earth did you get the robin to sit still for the photo?

DUTA said...

Your post 'attacks' all our senses: taste - the homemade brownie; smell - the perfume gift and the flower fragrances; sight - the trees (palm tree and the one with reddish branches),the beauty of the flowers with their colours of white, pink, purple; hearing - the robin's chirping.
What an harmonious symphony presented in your gorgeous pictures!
