Just flowers and decorations

I let the pictures speak for themselves today, it's too hot here to talk and I feel totally drenched. I'm just looking forward to some more comfortable temperatures hopefully this upcoming weekend!

I'd bring you a nice cold pitcher of something cool if I could Dear Carol! I know how you are feeling...I positively melt in the heat.
Too bad about the soccer match. I was thinking about you! We were watching and I was pulling for your team against the youngest Mr. Staggs who pulled for Italy. He's always been a fan...ever since that Crespo guy. He has a jersey he bought when visiting Italy and named one of our cats after him.

Your photos are lovely. They speak for themselves. I especially like the first two (love the ceramic head with the rusty crown) but they are all beautiful.

Wishing for cooler weather for you!

I'm running out of ways to describe the beauty in your garden - splendiferous!?! Hot, hot? You don't know the meaning of hot until you survive a north queensland summer in australia! Haha, well, I do believe you, really I do. Hope it cools down for you soon.

Cindy said...

The bust is stunning and the crown is oh so wonderful! Keep entertaining us.

Naturegirl said...

Joanna said...

Your garden looks great in spite of the heat. We have had really hot weather also. There is chance in the air though. It looks like rain is coming soon. We really need it.

All those lovely lavender and mauve colours help me feel cooler. It is very hot and humid here in England too. We even have had a thunderstorm, but the air didnot stay cool long and it now hot and airless again.

Robin said...

Your clematis is beautiful!! I hope the heat breaks for you soon. I hate the heat!

Alice said...

Your flowers are not just speaking for themselves, they are singing beautifully, as usual. I hope it cools soon and you get rain. I could always send you some cooler weather but not the rain.

Tracy said...

Your photos are always so lovely. You have such cottage charm in your gardens. Love all the pinks! Is that heather in the last pot?

gena said...

Carol said...

Thank you all for your lovely comments ladies and keep them coming please because I love to read them and it is such a good stimulation to keep me blogging!

Aww Cookie thank you you are a darling and Mrs Staggs too, it is such a nice thought that someone in Australia and someone in the USA has crossed fingers for our national team! At least they've won the little final and third place yesterday and they played really good!

I'll have a look if I can find the bust online somewhere and will let you know then Cindy and Teresa!

I love "splendiferous" Shell :D

Yes Joanna it's a bit cooler here too now!

Welcome to my blog Carol, nice name ;-) lol

Tracy no it's not heather it's thyme!
