"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

White Wednesday...

...there is a saying around these parts that goes "it isn't summer until the 5th of July."  Meaning, don't expect June weather to be nice, don't expect the 4th to be anything but raining.  BUT, come July 5th you can pretty much be guaranteed sunny, warm, blue skies until October.
With that in mind, and the fact that June has been particularly cold and damp, I still have no flowers blooming outside.  My veggie patch (from starts) is sadly struggling for survival and my bedding plants have seen better days.  What is a girl to do?  Well, this one stopped at the grocery today and while she was there she picked up some Spider Mums...enjoy!

Please join Kathleen at Faded Charm for more Wednesday Whites.  Thanks K!


  1. They are so pretty! No flowers for me, and my one, lonely, tomato plant doesn't look like it is going to make it either!

  2. Your spider mums are beautiful. Enjoy them. Hugs

  3. Spider Mums, really! Who would have thunk it!

  4. I'm beginning to think you live in Siberia.
    mums are always happy.

  5. I can definitely see why you guys over there have that saying! Usually June is decent here, but this year has been cold. I love the beauties you brought home from the market. They are gorgeous! I wish I could send you an armload of peonies!
    Have a wonderful dry 4th (I hope) and a great July 5th.lol!
