summer in the city

This picture is over in my sidebar,   I think from last summer. I wanted to "re-create" it for this summer, so I set out to attempt this the other day.

 Here's how it turned out:

I posed, and Mr. Front Porch snapped away! LOL

Pretty close, I guess. I didn't want identical, just very similar.
Summer scenes:
Grow things, eat things!

Summer magnolias and summer street gardens


Summer swims and summer walks.......

Summer greens and summer sunflowers........

Out for a summer ride!

summer sunsets with palm trees:

Summer rainbows! Bright and beautiful.

..........and summer seeds grew into these:

Happy Weekend, y'all!

summer showers

Yay!--It's summer! The daisies are blooming and the birds are singing songs of joy!

hello, Mr. Bluejay and Mr. Hawk!

Even with the heat and humidity, People are picnicking, fishing, and getting out in the boats.

the city streets are full of people and there are long lines at the restaurants to eat supper, and the booze pop vans are stationed around the city.

the crepe myrtles are hanging on

Dodging rainshowers, we set out for an evening walk

I love how the brown brick looks against the stormy sky!

always one of my favorite scenes---lace curtains in windows

Love these lime green doors!!

I love this old fence! Just about every time we walk by.....I photograph it!

pink blooms, soaked with cool summer rain

who has the key?! LOL

Looks like my lipstick matched the blooms! LOL

 Beautiful ornate gate in front of this white house

 Banana time!

Lights are now glowing in houses. Time to go in.

Time for "Dinner and a Movie"
Tonight's supper---an oldie-but-goodie.....hot dogs wrapped up with cheese into crescent rolls! And homemade scalloped "taters". It sure was GOOD! ha ha I made this supper alot when the kids were growing up. (cheap and filling, LOL)
Tonight's movie--an old Lifetime movie, Cries from the Heart,(1994) with Melissa Gilbert and Patty Duke. Story of a seven year old  autistic boy who can't read, write, speak, or communicate. Melissa is his over protective Mom and Patty is his teacher. It was a good movie, I liked it.

........and I have a new stack of summer magazines to enjoy!
So glad you spent the evening with us!
