Lemony Delights*

Hope your weekend was perfect and you had time to enjoy some little delights..
When I brought my new roses home in the car their fragrance filled the car with a lemony aroma.
I planted one of them today and I'll plant this climber next weekend.

Oh my gosh I found this great dish soap that is Lemon citron. I also love this citron hand lotion.
Everything around me today was Lemony! I was using my vintage milking stool to stand on for picking the lemons,
I picked a huge basket of Lemons this afternoon, being in the grove was so wonderful... smelling the fresh scent of the Lemons all around me.
It is interesting that I love love love lemons but yet I am not real fond of the color yellow!
Though I do like a pale butter yellow tone....

Have a wonderful Monday morning!

Cabbage roses*

Happy First Day of SUMMER*
Summer blossoms from my roses are so welcomed! Here are a few from my garden.
I'm going to pick up a few more roses that I placed a special order for. I hope they will like the soil here!
I love the fragrance of the Vintage Cabbage roses. I love love love to have cut roses inside!
I only plant White or pale pink! I enjoy my pallet cohesive.

I have been so busy lately, sorry my blogging has been minimal so I hope with school out I can pick up the pace!
Thanks for hanging in! I have a surprise coming up for yall!

Have a beautiful day and take time to smell the roses!!!

Proud Teachers, Parents and a few Tears!

This morning was my son's bitter-sweet elementary school promotion ceremony!
The ceremony was beautiful! The families were entertained with pretty piano music, guitar solos and speeches. Songs were sang by the 6th grade class. Teachers speeches brought tears to my eyes and I know I wasn't the only one with a hand full of tissue! The ceremony was perfect and all the children were so nicely dressed. It was fun to see how they all looked different without their uniforms... t-shirts and shorts!!!!

We got all the decorating finished inside and outside and it came together lovely. A big Thank you to all the mom's who helped get everything done!
A local nursery "Sunshine Garden's" in Encinitas was so generous to lend us all the beautiful evergreens, roses and hydrangeas! Truly it was a special favor because the family had a 6th grader getting promoted to and other children in the school. We were Lucky, it made the atmosphere alot more special!!!
To top it off the reception inside was lovely too, food and drinks were served.

An awesome video was playing featuring the promoting class doing lots of events and activities throughout the years at the school! The video was designed by a sweet mom of one of the class mates and she presented one to each of the students! I can't wait to sit down with my family and my son by my side to watch it together! Truly a gift that we all will treasure!

Here are some photos!

Our oldest son was with us and it was fun to see him laughing and smiling as I'm sure he reflected on his own elementary school days...

Have a fabulous friday*

Fair well to Elementary school*

I am thinking of all the last days of school I've spent with my boyz.
This one is tough, he is my last one. It will be his last day of Elementary school. I can't believe how fast the years have gone. I remember him starting kindergarden as if it was yesterday.
I wish we could go back a few years and slow things down a little. He is so special to us and it's a joy to be his Mommy. He has been so full of life and keeps us laughing.

I can't wait to get the decorating at the school done. I have been keeping some late nights but it all comes together tomorrow. I will take some photos!
Hope you take a moment to reflect with your children on their last day of school!

I think I will hold his hand and walk him to class one more time....

Summer Herbs

Having this Vintage planter just for HERBS is so perfect, I love how it turned out. I don't think the bunnies will get in this!
My planter is a large metal trough with a back splash. I think it was a sink or fountain at one time. I will turn it into a sink again someday. I thought I would use it as a herb planter until then.

I hope your weekend was fun, the weather was really beautiful here in So. Cal. Closing day ceremonies for my son's little league, and some of the first swimming days in our pool.
Here are some pics I took yesterday!
Have a beautiful day*
