A Cottage Garden Tour (Summer)

“Loveliest of lovely things are they on earth that soonest pass away. The rose that lives it’s little hour is prized beyond the sculptured flower.”
-William Cullen Bryant

Hello, sweet friend…


Summering up the garden with Rosemary & Thyme 🐝

Living on the Oregon coast in the summer for me…means romancing the outdoors.


That being said…I thought the first day of summer would be perfect for taking you around the garden.


Gerbera & lace

Come let’s stroll in a small cottage garden together…


I will create a decorative bouquet just for you…🐝





These exuberant old fashioned pink roses in full bloom celebrate the joy of summer. I’ve often wondered if the first owner…perhaps someone who worked at the old lumber mill…& handmade this cottage…planted these lovely roses…

would have ever imagined that this cottage garden would one day be…painted pink

cared for to it’s fullest🐝






Through the looking glass🐝

Summer unfolds it’s splendor…




My cherished white wicker for outdoor seating🐝

Happy Summer!

    Happy first day of Summer sweet friend….
    Your garden is glorious and I can almost smell the perfume of those double roses…. All the time you have spent lovingly planting your garden has truly been worth every moment…. It really is like a painting and all the colors are so vibrant…. I see Darjeeling is enjoying it too… Pets to Cami and MacKenzie…
    XOXO Jane
