It's that time of year again when I start feeling the blues...

...and little blue birds sing in the garden, while

 mopheads of country blue charm hydrangeas dance in my garden.

I get out my favorite Summer Book...

and a recipe for some cool cantaloupe soup.


Comfy cushions in marine blue and white polka dots on my vintage wrought iron chaise lounge are waiting for me in the shade of canvas market umbrellas on the cool blue slate terrace...


and perhaps a friend or two, too.


With the dazzling bright blue Southern sky shining...

through the windows, I've selected some new blue upholstery for my sun room sofa {Sunbrella Sky Blue} to bring it all indoors.

 But the best blues of all, are my baby's blues {even when he's cranky right after waking up from a nap}.

School is almost out and I'm ready for summer
Are you?

Ciao amici,
