A Beautiful Monday

 It's a beautiful day on this Monday.

70's in August?? 

It's almost unheard of.

Was sitting on the front porch a little while ago,

decided to snap a few pictures....

Our hydrangeas are not full of blooms
but just having some
brings me incredible joy!

The yellow tape is for spotted lanternflies, 
we don't have nearly as many as last year!
That's a good thing.

If you noticed the yellow sign at the end of the driveway,
that's the Mosquito Joe sign.

They have made a HUGE difference
 in the insane mosquito population we usually have around here.

Last week I stopped at the greenhouse 
and bought two more impatiens.
This pot just is not thriving as good as the other one...
have no idea why.
What I had in there was not growing at all.

See what I mean? 

We really like our quiet neighborhood!

Yesterday our resident artist was creating...

She is amazing!!

One afternoon last week it was quiet here so I took
 my good camera outside
 to capture some hummingbirds.

They are so fun to watch!

Moved my desk to this spot outside our bedroom.

I like it!

Hope you're having a good start to the new week and month.

Happy Monday!

Your flowers are beautiful. It's funny how two pots that are the same can grow so differently.
We need a mosquito Joe in our area. The mosquitoes have been bad.
Your little artist is very talented!

Love all your plantings. I've been noticing hydrangeas all over this summer and I'm wild about them. I'm doing a "best of 2021 hydrangea" post later this week. Please stop by!

Zoe’s artwork is beautiful! I love your office nook. Your home and yard are so beautiful. Great photo of the hummingbird. Have a nice week.💕

What a perfect place for your desk!

That's great that the mosquito population has been lowered. I don't think we have many here at our place.

Hummingbirds are so interesting and amazing!

I really love those potted plants. Mine is not looking so great this year.

Zoe the artist looks very well pleased with her artwork as well she should be. Glad the weather is as nice in PA as it is here in NH.

Beautiful scenes around your home! LOVE the desk and it's new location. That cute artist should be selling those paintings and signing them! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!
