Friday's Flowers ~ Cool Blues

It's been a very hot week in Maine, triple digit days with humidity and no A/C. I'm not complaining, it won't last long but it does tire one out.

Early this week before the heat hit I cut hydrangeas for our table bouquet. Each day it seems another head of blossoms wilts in the heat but four lovely blossoms still remain, transferred to a smaller vase. Their cool blue and lavender tones are so refreshingly pretty. 

But not nearly as refreshing as a swim in our friend's pool! Thanks Spring & kids for sharing.

As promised this week I drew a winner (Brienne did the actual picking) from every participant in May and June's Friday's Flowers. Child in Harmony's entry from Friday, June 11th was the winner. Thank you Marcia for participating. A bar of my Summer "Shoo-Fly" Soap will be coming your way.

Thank you also to everyone else who has joined, especially Francesca from FuoriBorgo who has participated each week. (If I've missed someone else who has posted each week also, please forgive me - you can flame me in comments).
