Some Days Are Golden....

  Six thirty this morning. Oh yes, I am loving these longer daylight hours.
  Low humidity this morning, sweet and cool.
 My flowers are loving the heat though....well as long as I give them some water.
 Marigolds and petunias, to go with  my yellow this year. These sit on a bench made of an old fence post.
 I had petunias with this potato vine and took them out, the vine  needed the whole container.
  More of the yellow petunias and marigolds on the porch. I did paint the stand, pot and cement ball all gray.
Speaking of paint...I painted the stars from the shed front and the old watering can. Here's the cans of tan and brown to paint the shed. Our next project. Hoping to get it done very soon.
   I am not in love with blogger's changes or windows ten and all their "latest" up-dates. Takes forever for my pictures to load. You all know about  not receiving notice on your email about any comments we leave on each others' blogs. That stinks.  I feel better getting that whining finished. LOL
  Wishing all a beautiful day. XO

  1. What a pretty view early this morn. Don't you love the cool mornings when the humidity is low? Your flowers are doing so well. Beautiful. Blogger changes are very frustrating...Lots of weird problems for me yesterday with blogging. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day. xoxo

    1. There was a bit of time I was getting reply on my g.mail acct. Not now. Emails are only from my daughter and Kohl's and CVS. LOL. Hope you are having better weather. Today here was one of our best. Summer is less than 6 days away. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  3. Your flowers are beautiful and I do enjoy the summer mornings. I got out this morning to wash windows! What fun! The blogger comment problem is indeed a problem. Trying to remember to check the little box. I also had to change my setting for comments. Think I have it now.

    1. I am not even sure how to go about fixing some of our problems here. Windows 10 keeps wanting to up-date and I have already let them do that yesterday evening. Making me nuts. LOL Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  6. A beautiful and serene start to your day Susie :)
    Your flowers are doing so well, ours started out full and happy but this heat and humidity are taking a toll ….
    Even the garden center tells me they are having a hard time keeping the flowers nice without wilting.
    Love the barn stars and old watering can, so nostalgic.
    Stay cool !
    Hugs,

    1. Jo, I went by one of the places that sells flowers here and it was a wilted desert. So sad. I water my plants every day..even if it says rain on the forecasts. Blessings for a great weekend there , xoxo, Susie

    1. Thank you Laurie. I slap some paint on faded things and make them last longer and look new. I think we had a couple weeks of spring then it went right to the 80's and 90's. I do love the longer days...that's what is so sad about winter..not enough daylight. Blessings for a great weekend, xoxo, Susie

    1. Hi Kay, I love our clear bright days when you smell the freshness of the air. I wish blogger had not change. Now when I leave some one a comment I never know how they feel about it. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

    1. Hi Carrie, Glad you love the longer days too. Even if I am sitting on the porch it's good to be outside. It would be nice to be able to turn the AC off and just enjoy fresh air with the windows open...it's too hot to do that. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

    1. Thank you Betsy. I did not put out as many flowers as I had hoped. But I enjoy the ones I have now. I have to get those stars back on the shed soon, or I will forget. :) Blessings, stay cool there. xoxo, Susie

    1. Arlene, I do not always agree that change is good. Not for an old girl like me anyways. I need some classes in computer tech. I just can't seem to finish decorating all at once...it just goes on and on. I stained the porch floor two years ago and the blistering sun has faded it already. I need to do it all over...in the mean time we are working on painting the shed...never ending work...this is retirement. LOL. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

  15. Your flowers are doing so well, Susie! Your sunrise pic reminded me of an old hymn, 'Some Golden Daybreak'. It was wonderful to have that one day of low humidity and cool breezes. Have a blessed weekend.

    1. Thank you Lisa. I thought I would go with the color yellow as I kept seeing pretty touches of it in blogs. My paint was a bit bright but it worked with the gray and cream colors. I do love the pale yellow of the petunias. :) Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  18. Your flowers are doing so well and are so pretty. I did a few planters of yellow petunias this year too. The colors are so vibrant. Loving this nice weather. Hoping with the rain moving out my flowers will bounce back some. They have really taken a pounding with all the rain. Happy Father's Day Weekend to your Hubby.
    xoxo

    1. Missy, I was shock at the weather your state received. We sure could use an inch of rain. It won't be this weekend...it is going to be very hot. The forecasters were talking heat index..that means hot. Makes me slow as a snail.:) Stay cool friend, Blessings, xoxo, Susie

    1. Thank you Debbie.I wish my whole summer could be a sweet as that morning. Yes, that's a clematis...in my mommy's favorite color. :):) It must get just the right amount of sun and shade..it does so well. I hope you also have a wonderful weekend. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, Susie

  21. Haha, whine all you want, my friend. I'm right there with you. Love all your cheerful flowers, Susie. Is that Clematis I spy? Gorgeous! Sprucing things up -- as with your shed project -- is fun and so rewarding isn't? Lots of work, too, but so worth it in the end. Enjoy these warmer days. I know what you mean about the mornings, that's what I experience here in our new state of Texas. The mornings are beautiful where we are. Low humidity, lots of sunshine and a cooling breeze. Perfect! Hugs, sweet friend. Continue to enjoy life, as I know you do!
