Above and Below: What was blooming today L-R: Hollyhocks, Rose of Sharon, Day Lillies. Hmmm, which nail polish matches the Hollyhock?
Below: Our peach tree is finally producing edible fruit!
Above and Below: We have no decent shopping when it comes to cosmetics brands in my small town, but we do have this, Lake Michigan. I much prefer the summertime to the wintertime!
Another weekend has gone by too fast, but I hope you all were able to enjoy it! No nails to post today because we worked in the yard most of the day and trust me, you don't really want to see my hands! I'm going to treat them tonight to a good soak and scrub so they'll be ready to post again tomorrow. I just wanted to show you some more of what's blooming in our yard this week...I love how every week seems to bring new blooms and colors.
I was also thinking about how we all lament over the fact that we can't get certain beauty products in our town that we see each other post about, or in other countries for that matter. That's probably what irritates me about living in Small Town, USA. At any rate, I also realize what a quaint little town I live in and that yes, it does have it's good points too. Even though we have no Sephora, Ulta, or even Macy's for that matter, there is more to life than shopping (there is?!) I love seeing and hearing about where you all live, so I thought I'd show you some pictures of our area. The high point is definitely the beauty of Lake Michigan. We're just a block from the St. Joseph river which flows into Lake Michigan, and the lake is only a 5 minute drive away. But for all of it's beauty, this area can be brutal in the winter. So we enjoy what we have and to be honest, I actually like living in a small town. Chicago is about an hour away and South Bend, Indiana is 30 minutes away (and they at least have an Ulta and a Macy's!). Are you happy with where you live? It would be interesting to hear what you like and dislike about it.
