Whimsical...Wondrous...Wonderful White Blooms......


White Phlox.....



White Nicotiana...


White Yarrow...{and friend!}

White Rose of Sharon...



White Waxy Begonias...

 
Hope you all had a great weekend, and are surviving the heat!

No rain yet...everything shrivelling!!

Managed to get a few good pics of these at the cottage...

We were only there for one night, as we had a family thing on Saturday...

It was very nice, and had a nice time!

The sunset on Thursday night at the cottage was unbelievable...

My boyfriend and I went for a swim right while this was happening...

Breathtaking,eh?

How lucky are we........♥️ 



My boyfriend is away on business for a few days...

I have a few projects lined up...bought all new fresh towels and a new carpet for his bathroom...won't that be a nice surprise! A lovely clean bathroom to come home to!  I have started another crochet project...a cardigan for Miss V...purchased the pattern on ETSY from The Velvet Acorn...she has wonderful patterns, and I also follow her on Instagram...check out her patterns!!
And...I bought some butterscotch ice cream and sauce to keep me company tonight! hahaha! Having dinner with my SIL Sharron tomorrow, and a visit from my friend Pat on Wednesday...along with Miss V of course ♥️ We did some fancy painting last week...she is so talented! 

Enjoy your evening...

        Cheers!  :o)

  1. I planted seeds earlier in the summer but because of the lack of sun they are not blooming. Just green leafy stems. The summer (what we have had of it) is winding down but I still keep hoping that flowers will show.

    Enjoy your company!

    1. Yes they do Jenn...and if I snip them off, they will rebloom...a very hearty drought tolerant perennial!
      You still dry there?

  6. I bought a white yarrow this year and love the white blooms. If I had my way I'd have white flowers only surrounding my home. Unfortunately, someone else likes lots of colour. I'll pop over to the Velvet Acorn. Thanks for the link, Linda. hugs

  15. I love this post, white flowers, bring them on! Your sunset on the lake is simply stunning. Do you ever frame your pics? You should!

    I wish my hubby had his own bath, we have two full. Just some plumbing issues in the one that is further down from our bedroom. Need to rectify that soon. Don't you miss him though? :-D

  17. Love all those beautiful whites! I've always wanted a 'white' garden - so serene......You are so nice to your traveling man, I'm sure he will appreciate that. Butterscotch sundae's sound perfect while he's away. You certainly are a lucky gal with that fabulous beach and it is wonderful to enjoy it with you, too. Sounds like a busy, but fun week! I'll take a peek at the crochet..thanks for sharing that - little Miss V is a lucky little girl. Hugs xo Karen
