Last week, I put out my Summer flag and changed the tablecloth on my cast iron table to happy red polka dots.
This morning, I sat outside on the front porch, reading, writing and generally enjoying the fact that relaxing Summer days have arrived. The double begonia hanging baskets I received for Mother's Day are abundant and so cheerful; they may very well be my most favorite baskets ever.
Mornings on the porch have become one of the best things about my Summer. There's really nothing quite like chirping birds to go with a fresh mug of coffee.
