signs of summer


summer is bursting at the seams...with our summer baby bee finally here...a garden full of tiny tomatoes... a vase of freshly cut purple weeds on the table because no other flower has survived the heat. max smells of forever sunscreen and pool and matt has developed a green thumb during his time off of work.

the days are running together in the best kind of way and even though we haven't done much with our summer yet, this has to be my most favorite one yet. things are simple...and happy.
 
if ever there were a time to own a hammock and a shade tree it would be now...

  2. I love your poetic words about summer. Aren't our happiest times when things are simple? I struggle with this, but this post is another reminder of what I strive to be. Simple & happy (& in a hammock, under a shade tree).

  11. Congratulations on your summer baby girl! She is gorgeous! On the purple weeds: I believe it is a Knapweed it could be Russian Knapweed or Difusse kanpweed. I'm a weed nerd :) this plant is very invasive here, it has no natural preditors here in the Americas. Enjoy the treats of summer :)
