From modest urban green spaces to colossal Edens, the Philadelphia area is laden with public gardens that provide a mix of history, terrain, setting and atmosphere. Ablaze in color, these green spaces around the city are showing their best face.
I am pretty sure these gardens are wondering if they were transplanted to a rain forest at the moment. They are having the same rainy weather pattern that I've been experiencing.

We are quickly approaching the end of this book. Boo Hoo!
I am later than usual getting this Sunday Morning post together. I am trying to get more balance in my life and that includes less computer time. Plus I don't want to be so predictable. I will still do a daily post but at different times each day. It's summer and I want to enjoy it.

I always look for old interesting watering cans at tag sales. I've had this one for years. The stool was built by the original owner of my cottage. He lived to be 100. I am the second owner. I use this primitive step stool all the time when I need a boost. There is an oval cutout in the top that makes it easy to grab and carry. It's built like a battleship and should last for at least another 100 years.

This feeder hangs outside my bathroom window. A nice big fat red-bellied woodpecker kept coming this morning. I photographed him through the screen. I love these birds!

I love these shiny little yellow flowers that grow wild with no coaxing or care. My kind of wildflowers! I think they look so pretty in the antique cobalt blue bulb forcing vase that is white on the inside.
