Dog days of summer

The hottest, most sultry days of summer in the garden...

Late August; dog days of summer...
And here I am drinking it all in… slowly, peacefully…
The depth, the azure, the perfume… transcending ecstasy
Playing house in the garden with my pretty thrift store dishes and an old baker's rack made potting bench!
Savoring this... the most delicious ice cream ever! Espresso Mocha.
How are you spending your summer days? Oh I know summer can be quite a bummer for some of you who live in super hot places and I feel for you, but summers are so short here... oh how I wish it would stay!


  1. I'm eating ice cream surrounded by beautiful roses, too. Maybe not as many as you have.

  2. What beautiful images!
    Your garden is soooo pretty.
    I don't want the summer to end either!


  3. Everything still looks summery and beautiful in your gardens, Cielo! I love the dish of ice cream and can only imagine how wonderful that must have tasted!

    I am spending time by the Bay-watching sunsets over the water and treasuring these last few days before my grandkids start school. xo Diana

  4. Dear Cielo,
    I have been very busy with problems at the Little White House this summer, too busy to visit you as often as I wished... But coming back to spend time in your garden was heavenly. Thanks for those pictures.

  5. HI, I saw your blog on my friends Madeliefs blog and I love what I see. I love your photo's and your flowers. Gorgeous. I am your newest follower

  6. oh my, your post is so dreamy...
    your gardens and art are beautiful..

  7. There is a hunt of fall in the air midst the heat. But your garden breathes. Color and life. Just like you!
