As Summer Flies By

I know, you are thinking that Summer has just begun but time does seem to be just flying.  It has been 5 days since I last checked in.

The days have been packed with all sorts of things that did not include blogging!  The weather has cooled down, in fact, my heater clicked on the past two mornings just to bring the house to 68 degrees inside.

My house stays very cool, great for the summer weather but not if it does not warm up at all during the day.  It was downright cold on Saturday, a high of 55 degrees with cloudy skies and a nippy breeze does not make this heat lovin’ gal happy!
So what have I busied myself with???

Painting.. I have had several custom orders come in and I have knuckled down to get them done.

These are just a couple, a man ordered these to put into his garden. 


Cady is the customers granddaughter.  He wanted something with ladybugs and butterflies with a cute font.

I am not quite sure who Samantha is but the sign was first ordered with just lettering but it just was too plain next to Cady.  So a couple roses were added. 


The garden is beginning to change to it’s summer colors.  In Spring the purple flowers seem to dominate but now the Summer perennials are beginning to take over.

It is stealing the show at the moment but the Black Eyed susans are getting ready to add their various shades of happy colors.


The Sweet Williams are always a favorite. I have so many colors. 

 A vibrant red.


rosy pink


These are but a few.  I have one plant that has several colors on each stalk.


that is all I have time for tonight…until next time.

  4. Hi Pamela, what little girl wouldn't love seeing her name on a sweet sign like that? I love how you added some ladybugs to the lettering. I agree, Samantha Rose needed a couple of roses. Your gardens are as lovely as your paintings. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.

  5. I always love your flower signs. I may have asked this before, but, is the white background an exterior paint, or craft paint... and do you spray them with a coating after painting?

  6. Hello Pamela, Your signs are sweet! I am sure they'll love them! I'd love your temperatures! We've been in the 100s and high 90's for a few days now!
    I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
