In the winter you may want the summer; in the summer, you may want the autumn; in the autumn, you may want the winter; but only in the spring you dream and want no other season but the spring!” ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan Words of Wisdom, Aphorisms, Wise Sayings, Quotations


Happy 4th of July to all my American family and friends

and a very very happy birthday to my beautiful and dear long time friend Ilona

Then followed that beautiful season...
Summer....
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood."
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow




“Fireflies in the Garden
Here come real stars to fill the upper skies,
And here on earth come emulating flies,
That though they never equal stars in size,
(And they were never really stars at heart)
Achieve at times a very star-like start.
Only, of course, they can't sustain the part.”-Robert Frost

"I wish you enough sun
to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain
to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness
to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain
so that the smallest joys
in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain
to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss
to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hello's"
to get you through the final "Good-bye."

I am so proud to live in this beautiful Country and call myself a Canadian.

Lovely July with the evocative murmur of honey bees on the wing and the smell of sun tan cream.

Cythia Wickham

Sultry, steaming, sweltering July.  Slow down or stop.  It's time to shed ambition and expectation, along with commutes, clothing, cellular phones, and calendars,  Now our wants seem to diminish.  Is it because our needs are met?  A shady nook, a cold drink, a cool breeze whether indoors or out.  A respite from the rigors of the day.  Time off for good behavior.  Summer is not so much a season as a melody, that tune of contentment we hum as the days begin to beautifully blur.  The pursuit of happiness becomes our personal priority this month.  Harmony starts to be heard in our hearts.

From the book  Simple Abundance  A daybook of Comfort and Joy
Sarah Ban Breathnach

Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. To these I commit my day. If I succeed, I will give thanks. If I fail, I will seek his grace. And then when this day is done, I will place my head on my pillow and rest.

Summers Peak

by Hilda Sanderson

June lets summer softly in
With warm and sunny skies
While hotter days beg for release
To which July replies
And as the season slowly heats
With blazing searing passion
The days grow long and lazy too
In summer's special fashion.
And at its peak the world seems to 
Relax for just a while
To bathe in natures glow
And summer's sultry smile.



I am ever so proud to be Canadian Our glorious Country
148 Cheers to Canada

“Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.”


“The most significant gifts are the ones most easily overlooked.
Small, everyday blessings: woods, health, music, laughter, 
memories, books, family, friends, second chances,
warm fireplaces, and all the footprints scattered
throughout our days.”~Sue Monk Kidd

"Have a heart that never hardens, 
and a temper that never tires, 
and a touch that never hurts."
~ Charles Dickens ~


My gardenia plant and celosia

My fabulous brother in law Pat
made me this Island Splash (name of paint for this planter)
Planter designed from my original one from my former home
but his one is a smaller version.
My sister put a red geranium in it.
Thanks for the love  Pat and Debbie



Fresh basil fuschia plant and straw flowers and jasmine
and the hummingbird feeder I can never keep filled quite enough
as they love it so much

Where I go to get library books near our condo

Flowers forever make me happy and I am always burning
my Island getaway candle





Have a fabulous day 
in every way

heart from injury is the strength that
prevents the heart from enlarging to 
its intended greatness within. The
song of the voice is sweet, but the song
of the heart is the pure voice of heaven."

My sweet friend Matthew down the hall made this
beautiful flower arrangement for me.
I love it Bamboo black stone and a gorgeous flower
Each tenant in our building is an absolute angel
