When I first thought about our Summer home tour, I said to myself what is it that truly
makes a Summer Tour different than a Fall home tour?
Is it just that there aren’t any pumpkins, or is there more.
Could it be that the cozy furry throw got tucked away on that warm sunny Summer day and
those heavy burgundy velvet pillows were pushed into a guest room closet.
Or maybe it was the soft pink petals of those geraniums that gave it all away.
How about the guest room that sings songs of Summer with it’s refreshed and renewed
decor. Bye, bye federal blue, welcome bouquets of tangerine, carnation pink and aqua.
Then there are those mischievous pillows that tumble and refuse to stay straight.
And that one silly pillow that said a cheery HELLO!
Brilliant pink Cosmos that grew from tiny little seeds into proud, tall and strong
Summer blooms, dodging eager scissors and even a butterfly or two.
Could it be that the rooster gave up his dark fluffy feathers for a crown of white?
Did merry little creamers all in a flutter over longer days of sunlight dance next to colorful
milk bottles on my kitchen counter…
And then there are those perfect flowers of early Summer.
They magically unfurl their glorious manes of pink, and a eager gardener snips them fresh
from the garden, arranging them carefully for the honored spot in her home.
Dining room doors opened wide to welcome nature in and a bouquet of wild flowers in
a vintage watering can.
And so it is, the Season of Summer has arrived.
I thank you for welcoming me into your home today to share with you how we welcome
Summer into ours.
