Getting Ready For Summer

In Connecticut, most folks try to get their cottages and beach house all gussied up and ready for Memorial Day, the official start of summer. Aren’t we all on the lookout for gardening tips and decorating ideas?

I think this swan flower garden container with the pansies is such a cute idea.

Up in Vermont, where my charming son-in-law is originally from, lake cottages are called “camps.”  I still can’t get used to that phrase!

As much as I enjoy a lake every now and then, I’m still a beach gal – I can smell the salt water already!

Are you a beach person, or a lake person, tell my WHY!

  1. I love the bright pink flowers and it just looks so cute. There is nothing like that here but since I like in ND – cottages wouldn’t be very practical. :-)

  2. beautiful!
    I love water – I’m not picky whether it’s a lake or the ocean!

  3. Very pretty flowers! We definitely go the lake more often, only because it’s much closer. I would love to take my son to the beach this summer though.

  4. Beautiful flowers!

  5. I’m a lake girl!

    Very pretty flowers. :)

  6. I am very much a sea person too. Perhaps there wasn’t a choice for me here in Singapore since we do not have any lakes. What we have are reservoirs.

  7. Lovely way to spruce up for summer, I love those pink petunias!

  8. You are sooo lucky to leave near the beach. I am land locked here in Utah. My goal is to live long enough to move by the beach. I LOVE the sound of the waves and walking on the sand.
    If I am by a lake the best part is the sound of the wind in the pines. But this weekend I was at a rug hook retreat at Bear Lake and there were NO trees anywhere.

  9. Pretty flowers! I’m probably more of a lake person. Although I’m honestly more of a pool person. I don’t like water that I can’t see the bottom of and has things bigger than me swimming in it. Don’t get me started on seaweed, either. ewwww

  11. I am NOT happy until I’m at Mom’s beach house with the kids… (see obxdunes dot com) toes in the sand after an ocean swim…. I can’t WAIT!!!

  12. I live on the lake so I guess I am a lake girl. There is something romantic about being an ocean girl. Happy Memorial Day next week. Canada is celebrating Victoria Day this weekend. Bring on the heat.

    Stopping by from SITS.
