Is it really the end of June already ?

Good Morning everyone, I just can't believe we are in the last few days of June. The weather here still feels like spring time. No complaints .....  It's been great for me since I got a late start on all my summer projects and it's also why ya'll haven't been hearing much from me. I have been planting, weeding, painting, weeding, eating, weeding, playing, weeding, pruning and more weeding and I'm sure after all this fabulous rain
I will be weeding some more ...
It's raining again this morning and I have nothing else to plant so I thought I could either clean house or share some of the fun stuff I have been up to with all of you..
I love ya'll so much more
 than cleaning house so here we go ...lol 

A new wreath for the front porch made from twigs and vines from around the yard, a cute little metal sign from my girlfriend April. A found nest with some little wooded eggs and my pink Pocketful of posies sign I painted.
I started laughing when I looked at this picture the entire time I was painting the sign I was singing
" Ring around the rosy " well I painted it just like I sing it.. instead if pocket full  I have ran it together pocketful..
Oh well can we call it a Southern thang ...

moved some yard sale treasure to the front porch.. 
looking at this picture..
 I think I might better move my iron gingerbread pieces back to the back if I want to keep them. I would hate to have to hurt someone if I saw them at their house... lol

The swing has gone from Paris Grey to Benjamin Moore's  Southern Comfort Which is my favorite pink.
It has just enough brown in it to make it more grown up looking than most pinks...
Hung my new sign the hubby and I made. It's out of old pickets fence pieces but we sawed off the " pickets " because it was so big it looked like a billboard from the road..

eating lots of cherry tomatoes

A wreath for the gate.. actually after all this rain she needs a little TLC

the bird bath went from black to a rain washed pinky white. I painted this dang thing white first, didn't like it so I painted it a blue/green .. hated it ..So then I added some of my favorite pink to the white, painted it, loved it.. Well lo and behold it started raining the next thing I knew the paint was sliding right off of it...lol So heck with it I planted the Sedum and called it done.. looking at this picture I think I need to plant some more Sedums in the oyster shells...

my guilty pleasure this weekend

with the rain comes the morning glories and ferns up through the deck boards and my second planting of cucumbers are starting to flower ..
We have been enjoyed some really sweet corn ..
I'll tell ya'll a secret if you promise not to tell..
My computer screen has spots of corn goodness on it... 
You know when you bite into the kernel and it shoots the person across the table from ya .. Well I was trying to enjoy a piece and play on Facebook last night and well ...

and saving the best for last ~ I have found some great perennials for a little bit of nothing at a few different nurseries some were only a buck .. and yesterday while it rained I planted all of them.. I love planting in the rain does that make me goofy ????

10 minutes after I finished hanging my sign on the front porch a gentleman stopped by and asked could he have some hibiscus seeds ... I told him I could do him one better I had a few small plants that I had started but had not sat out yet.. Once he was gone I though hum might better take that sign down ... Nope I love it...
Whoa ya this post is so long it's time to eat again ... where's my dental floss I'm having more corn for lunch..
hugs and happy last week of June everyone, Cherry

and for the few that might want to know why Beverly Farms instead of Cherry's because it is the original name of our property as indicated on our property deed and the word Farm is just cool looking on signs..

Raindrops, Sunshine, Raindrops

Fuji waterfall hydrangea 




Good morning everyone hope ya'll are having a fabulous morning. It's another rainy morning here. We have had gobs of wonderful rain and cool cloudy days. I have gotten so much done outside it's hard to believe it's June.. The only downfall of all the rain is not a lot of blooms, more weeds and bugs than I have ever seen and the pool water is chilly again.. The upside, I'm betting the Fall gardens are going to be gorgeous or at least that's what I'm trying to convince myself of.. lol
 oh and a little tidbit of info DO NOT paint a birdbath when you know it's going to rain the paint will slide right off..
Yes I did that Saturday ...
hugs and happy day, Cherry
