The flowers in the garden are exploding right now: roses, peonies, lady's mantle. Hostas are out of control. The irises and lilacs have gone by. The spirea will bloom in a week or so and the hydrangea and clematis will come a bit later. It all looks like a garden gone wild, in a good way, I think, maybe my neighbors think it's a bit crazy, I don't really know.

I moved most of my indoor plants up to our second story porch (mostly because I thought they would look cool on my new table). Someone had left the table out on trash day last fall and I dragged it home. It really was ugly, but two coats of blue impervo outdoor paint later, and I think I really love it.

Will drew these flowers in school. He usually draws airplanes and I don't think drawing the flowers was his choice, but I love them all the same.

Hi Jill,
I adore those flowers that your son drew! I love the blue table and plants too, I just planted pots of lavender to put in the front of my house, can't wait for them to bloom now~
Happy summer....!
