Summer Printable | Garden Blooms

First Day of Summer Blooms from the Garden | Free Summer Chalkboard Printable included!Today marks the first day of summer…and I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate with a summer printable and some pictures of what’s blooming in my garden. I wish I had more blooms to share but things are a little behind.  The peonies and dianthus are long gone. They came and went so quickly I didn’t even get pictures of the peonies in bloom. Here they are in bud…and I actually love the buds almost as much as I love the blooms.

This coreopsis is all that’s left of the garden I planted 20 years ago. Most everything I planted the first time around died or had to be relocated. Just like the sun rising in the morning, I can count on this coreopsis to provide happy, yellow blooms every June.

I look forward to the daisies because they make such a fantastic cut flower. Decorating with daisies is one of my favorite parts of summer.

First day of summer garden blooms along with a free chalkboard printable of a Celia Thaxter quote about summer and the grateful heart.It was a year ago today that Kelly was attacked during an evening walk. She is completely healed physically but occasionally she refuses to go on a walk with me. We get to the end of the driveway and she simply plants herself. I don’t force her, but I honestly don’t know if that’s the right thing to do or not. She walks with my husband and does just fine.

If you are new to On Sutton Place, you can read about Kelly’s attack HERE.

Enjoy the summer printable. If you’ve never printed a chalkboard printable, they come out looking like the real thing. Pop it in a frame and you have instant wall art that’s perfect for the rest of the summer. It also makes a really nice screensaver for your phone.
