The song for this post is Never Never Land...that's what I think the Land of Blog is, filled with parties, sunshine and lovely words.

Oh, how beautiful, Karen! And I love your little four-footed family members enjoying the outdoors! Your deck and your yard are lovely. And I bet you have nice weather to enjoy them. We are "warm", and that is putting it mildly. I roasted doing today's post, but it was fun (except for chair wrestling).

Happy First Day of Summer Porch Party...

Hi Karen,

What a beautiful home and garden you have.
All your flowers, petunias, Cocoa and Samantha are all gorgeous.
Enjoy your porch party and week

Your deck is so pretty Karen and I have always thought your gazebo looks so magical at the top of those stairs. The chaise lounge on your deck is calling my name, I would love to doze in the sun for a while:>)

Alison said...

Karen looks like you live in a beautiful part of the world. Love the view from the deck.

Hello Karen, your back deck is beautiful...I would like to have one some day. Your doggies are adorable. Enjoy your beautiful yard.


Vee said...

Beautiful spot you have to enjoy! Wonderful flowers, bright sunshine, cozy chairs, a table, two lovey pets, what more could a gal want?

Your deck is lovely! I love your view and your pretty flowers. It looks like a wonderplace to enjoy a glass of lemonade, or sit with friends during a wonderful dinner.

Hi Karen
I have missed all my blogging friends especially you! Thanks for joining my party today. It's really hot here today so a tall glass of that lemonade would be just the thing. I'm going to visit for awhile and see "where you create".
Hugs, Rhondi

Hi Karen,

Thanks for coming over for a visit...yes, while I was in the constant collecting phase I joked that one day it would become "retirement income"...well...it's no joke these days..:0)

Finally, finally after almost 5 years of major life changes and moves I can get my business running again.

Thanks again for your kind comments,
Stephanie ♥

Good morning, dear Karen.

I love your outdoor spaces. Your eye for beauty is reflected in everything you touch. I so enjoy the quiet of outdoors.

We have wanted to build a gazebo in our woods for years, but it never seems to make it to the top of our list. My husband built the bridge over our creek bed about ten years ago, and he has even laid the stone path to where we want to put the gazebo. Maybe one of these days we'll get it done.

Karen, your yard and gardens are absolutely stunning...and your deck looks like a wonderful place to wile away a summers day...
