Greetings Prim Folk, Happy Monday to you all.... What a wet weekend it was here, oh my did it rain buckets and buckets. Also such strong winds were blowing, tree limbs were littered everywhere. Crazy weather we have been having lately, would like to know where summer is. The sun did peek out yesterday morning for all of about an hour, but let me tell you is was so nice to see even though it was short lived. I did get out and putter in the gardens for a while, flowers seem ok, some knocked a kilter from the wind. My Goats Beard is huge this year, beautiful fluffy white tufts. The past two years it was small and scrawny but this year it's back to all it's glory, I am so happy about that........
..........Wishing you all a wonderful day, Summer Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk, looks like another cloudy day here today. The weather has not been cooperating very well since the first day of summer. No sunshine, just grey dull days, raining off and on. So, really I have not been doing to much, spending the day being lazy, this weather makes me feel like not doing much of anything. Nothing new to post about, BORING!!!!! I have been spending my time on Pinterest pinning away. So addicting, I joined and have boards of my own now, that's about exciting as I'll get for now.......... Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, Summer Blessings Francine.

Happy Monday Prim Folk, hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was quiet, my weekend to work so really didn't do much of anything. Did pay my sweet Sister a visit Saturday evening, brought along my Mom too. Always a joy to spend time with family, love them dearly. Other then that, spent time outdoors playing in the gardens.........Cam came home with a wonderful surprise for me, a beautiful large basket that was in someone's garbage. I love it, it's huge too, not to sure what I'll do with it but it's a keeper, my treasure now.........Wishing you all a cozy summer day, Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk, wishing you all a happy first day of summer. Nice and sunny, will be a hot and humid day here, will defintly feel like a summer day. Skeeters are out for blood too with all the rain we have been having, but after the the long cold winter we have endured I really do not want to complain, even though I don't do humid days well. I have to spray bug repellent on when I want to go out in the yard, flower beds need weeding but still enjoying being outdoors. Flowers are growing well, not that many blooming at this time in the flower beds, the annuals in the pots are very pretty. Well, speaking of outside, I shall pour another cup of coffee and go sit out on the swing, love the mornings. Summer Blessings Francine.

Greetings Prim Folk, it is a rainy morning here. I do like a softly falling rain when I am cozy in the house, no watering the flowers today, Mother Nature is doing it for me. ........ I want to show you pictures of my sweet neighbors front yard, the flowers are so pretty now that they are blooming. She has no grass to cut, just rock, stepping stones and plants. The Dames Rocket is in bloom, the smell is amazing, people are always stopping by to admire her front yard ablaze with purple. I went out last evening to snap a few pictures, front and side view, wish you could smell the scent of them with me..........Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk, enjoying a beautiful sunny one here, love it when the sunshine is beaming in the windows. I will take my coffee outside soon and sit on the swing in the warm sun. .........When we were at the lake this past weekend, I was doing a little weeding around the ceders we have. I happened to be bending down by one when a little Chipping Sparrow flew out from it. I thought what are you doing in there wee one, when I looked closer, there was the sweetest little nest with tiny blue eggs in it, oh my. I felt very bad I had scared her off her nest, but not meaning to. I left and watched, praying the little bird would go back to her nest and after a bit, she did. Happy she did, I love to find little natures treasures around, makes me smile. Wishing you all a cozy summer day, Blessings Francine.

Greetings Prim Folk, beautiful sunny morning here, love it. I have been busy out in the flower gardens this week, weeding, moving some plants around, all that fun stuff. Enjoy being outdoors getting my hands in the dirt, find it relaxes me, but the ole back sure feels it now. Find myself taking many more coffee breaks then I use to, oh the joys. I also spent some time indoors doing a little summertime decorating. Still like to putter around inside changing up the decor, not to much, just little summery touches here and there..........
We are off to the lake this afternoon once again, my weekend off from work, so trailer here we come. The weatherman calls for rain all weekend but we shall see, he has been wrong before :)............Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, enjoy that big round moon tonight, Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk, the sun is shining and a little on the cool side but I love it. Yesterday went out for a ride to some out of town Thrift stores, always enjoy touring the countryside, never know what you might come across. I did find some goodies, did not need them but seem to have a wee problem passing on anything old and cheap. I found a great smelling candle with flicker bulb, smells so great when the light is on and warms up the wax, was only a $1.00. Then found a old coffee mug in great shape, these mugs remind me of my childhood, my Mom and Dad use to drink their coffee in mugs like this. Also cute set of vintage apple salt and pepper and a farm scene picture frame that I love, not bad at all for the whole amount of $3.00..............Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, Blessings Francine.

Morning Prim Folk, here we are into June already, wow!!! The other evening I noticed the Lily Of The Valley starting to bloom along the side of the house, oh how I adore these little white bell flowers. They always bring back sweet memories of when I was a child and we lived in the country. My family moved to this wonderful old yellow farmhouse when I was about 6, oh I loved that house so. All the fields, creek running in the back of the house, huge gardens, life was grand.
All along the house in the back grew these beautiful heaven scent flowers, to me this is what Heaven must smell like, so intoxicating. These pretty sweet smelling white bells always bring comforting memories to me, plus they fill the house up of such a beautiful aroma..... Wishing you all a great day, Blessings Francine.

Happy Monday Prim Folk, hope you all enjoyed a wonderful weekend. I sure did at the lake, weather was fine. Saturday was cloudy but warm and yesterday was perfect, sunny with a breeze. I did a lot of relaxing, reading, watching birds and burning wood, love a good ole campfire. Also I did some planting, bought some flowers in town at a little greenhouse, like to support the little guys and town of St. Malo. My girlfriend also came out for a few hours Sunday, always enjoy having company, sat and chatted in the warm sunshine. Cam enjoyed his time out on the lake and Angel kept busy chasing a wee Chipmunk, let me tell you, Shih-tzu's are no hunters, the chipmunk runs up the tree, Angel keeps on running, very entertaining though. Another great weekend spent at the trailer.......Wishing you all a beautiful day, Blessings Francine.
