Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Better Late Than Never

Hope you all had a lovely and peaceful Memorial Day. We barbecued hamburgers with family and had a wonderful day. I've been doing a little planting, in between the rain and even snow we've been having. Pots for the front porch... The window boxes...The delphiniums are about ready to bloom...So it looks like we might have a little spring after all.

Mimi Sue, Beautiful as always. Let's just keep our fingers crossed that the sun stays out.

Your pots are cute. I have seven flats waiting for me to plant them. I has to wait for Dan to fix the sprinkler pipe I sent a stake through while putting in edging. :)

By the way, I'm itching to get some of that fabric from Ikea you showed a few posts ago--I need some pillows for outside. Oh, and I made a flower for the door...I'm really not the best sewer. ;)

It's looking very pretty over at your house. I guess gardening is in the air here in blogland. It will be hot here in the desert before we know it, so I'm trying to enjoy the pleasant weather as much as I can.

Linda said...

So pretty, Mimi~ and I love your little chick!

Anne Fannie said...

Bring on the sun and the flowers. I love you yellow sunny house and all your flowers. Especially, that teracotta pot with the handles and the white around it.

Big Hugs

I just adore your cottage-looking house! Oh, I've always yearned for the white picket fence and window boxes.

Lynn said...

What a lovely home and garden! I love the pale yellow paint and the white picket fence :)

Anne Fannie said...

I love those windown boxes. I wish I had some on my house!
My husband and I are flying to Utah tomorrow to see some grand babies this weekend, did you say snow and rain???? Darn!
Hugs, Ann
