Some Pretties From the Lake...



Last weekend at the lake was spent putting in the dock and boat lift, doing yard and beach clean-up, and gardening!  There are still dock sections to go in, as well as the boat, but the beach is ready for summer play, and the firepit is ready to go for nighttime smores making!

We always have lots of visiting ducks...  

There are flowers blooming everywhere...geraniums...


peonies...


irises...


cranesbill geraniums...


 carpet petunias...


the flowerbox is filled with white this year...


chives make a showy display...


Look at this spiderweb...


The pugs enjoy the lake, too!


We have great family times here!  The rest of the family is holding down the fort and I am going to be visiting my parents and family in California for the next week!  I am looking forward to some special times and some relaxation!  So I'll be taking a blog and etsy break... I'll be back on the blogs in a week or so!

Until next time...hope you are enjoying the summer, too!
Linda

  20. I grew up going to our family's cottage on a lake in Michigan. I always loved it out there. It still is a dream of mine to someday live on a lake. I love your photos.

  31. Ah, a lake house! This week we are having 100+ weather (ya, like that's unusual in TX) and I was so hot I started searching lake front properties in MN. We are years away from retirement and moving, why do I torture myself?!
