Welcome Summer! Here it is almost July already!
Even with the sweltering heat and the humidity, I still do love Summer. I DON'T like the dang "skeeters" and "no-see-ums" which float around noses, eyes, ears and then aggressively, with their high pitched little "whrrrrr-wheeee" zoom!--in for the attack. LOL Dang varmits!
Beautiful yellow blooms of lady banks roses wrap themselves all around the decorative posts at the Rutledge House.
|we see patches of Wisteria in several different places and hot pink azaleas peeking through this fence|
|flame bright leaves against a brilliant blue sky!|
|a lovely old piazza to while away a sunny afternoon! A peaceful place to doze a little, read a book, doze a little more....and watch the world go by....|
|bright greenery spilling out of ancient stones|
Tracie (my doll) and Star (her doll) are still decked out in their St. Patricks Day ensembles!
|and then we come upon my favorite spot to see the yearly Wisteria. It's always so pretty here. Lots of people make pictures here, and I've seen lots of brides pose in front of it in their wedding gowns.|
|the dress has lots of lace. It's so gorgeous!|
|and in she goes.....to meet her selected groom at the flower trimmed altar, to pledge their vows and begin their new lives!|
|one of the most photographed doors on this street|
|lots of pretty things to see and make pictures of today!|
|love all the different textures in this picture!|
|a closer view|
|love this ornate ironwork atop this gate|
|moss and ferns and weeds and blossoms! Our cyclamens are doing so good this spring/summer!We have pink ones and red ones.|
|yep, you just never WHAT you'll see walking along our city streets!|
|NOT a good choice of shoes for our old streets!|
|Fiery leaves flash color in the sunshine|
|we hadn't walked down Philadelphia Alley in a while, so we ventured down that. I told her a little about the history here, and the duels fought.|
Peeking into the back room of one of the theaters.....saw lots of amazing stage costumes!
|bright red bottle brush trees in bloom--I think these are so unusual and so neat!|
|they look like scarlet caterpillars!|
|shadows play on old old bricks|
|restaurants and shops have their doors open.....welcoming your business|
