White Wednesday...and a lovely new magazine.


It seems to me that the world is spinning at a faster pace than I can keep up with...
so when this happens, therapy for me is to take the camera outside
into my place of repose and capture the beauty that is there for the taking.

A week or so ago, I had cut some of the hydrangeas that were blooming
and put them in a picnic basket to dry naturally. This arrangement will be adorning
the top of my kitchen cabinets for the Winter to remind me Summer will
again come and bring it's blooms with it.


As you can see from the pictures, it was still very green here at the time I cut the hydrangeas.
In a very short time, things have changed and Autumn has painted the garden a myriad
of hues, and everyday is even more beautiful than the day before.
The petunias in the urn behind are still hanging in there with their
gorgeous colors from Summer.



I left many on the bush to see if they would change from their white to the lovely sepia
tones that they do sometimes in the Fall.

I think because they have been so late this year, they won't get their chance.
 Snow is expected here next week.
Last Fall we got our first snow the 6th of October! Even the snow is late.
 (thank goodness)




I love hydrangeas in all their different hues and stages on the bush,
and I cut them to see how each stage will dry.

The longer they are on the bush the better they dry.
But sometimes I want just the right color, so I will cut early.
I don't mind if they shrivel and crinkle up a little.
I can still see the beauty they have to offer.

Boy, do I hope people think that way of me when I get that way.LOL!



The roses are STILL blooming beautifully!
 In the middle of October...
LOVE IT!


I took the pictures of this 'Morden Snowbeauty' rose yesterday.
The pureness of the white is so striking in the garden right now,
amidst all the Fall colors.






And what goes better with White Wednesday, than a little white dog???

T.T. Rabbit aka Tiny Tim



Among all the green that is still out here in the garden,
you can catch glimpses of Autumn everywhere.
I took many photos yesterday of the colors, and will be posting them
in my next post.
 I better hurry and post however, because it sounds as if I will
have snow photos to post soon!



If it wasn't for the fact that I am in need of a good rest...
I would be kicking and screaming my way into Winter.
But am I tired!!!
The good kind of tired.


To veiw some beautiful whites,
you will find a link to many sites showing theirs off this Wednesday
at Kathleen's Faded Charm.
***
I am excited to share with you this beautiful magazine
 that the lovely artist Jo-Anne Coletti at
She had asked me if she could do a feature of some of
my style in the garden, home, and studio. 
I was thrilled that she would consider me, since this is a one time magazine on
romantic style that she is creating.
I am so excited to be able to grace it's pages.
Thank you so much Jo-Anne.
I have left a link to her site if you would like to know more about it.
Just the front cover makes me drool.
I can't even imagine what the rest will be like.



Did I already say, 'I am excited'?!!

Ubelievable how many beautiful flowers you still have in your garden!
What exciting news June! No wonder that somebody who is making a magazine on romantic style considers your garden, home and studio, it is all too romantic, drool, drool, drool.....
Please show us some photos when you are in it...
Have a great day over there, I do hope that the snow will keep you waiting for a while!

Blondie's Journal said...

Another beautiful post, chock full of your beautiful flowers. I love dried hydrangeas!! Yours are just lovely and the blooming roses amaze me! What a green thumb you have!!

Snow so soon? I am SO not ready! I thought at least the trees in Michigan would have started to change, but only just a bit. I wonder what snow will do to the green leaves!

Congrats on your upcoming contribution to the new magazine. Can I say I am not surprised??! :-)

XO,
Janie

Claudia said...

I forget how far north you are and the snow can come in October! My roses are blooming one last time and I must say I am thrilled. I have dried hydrangeas around the house because I love them. They are such perfect flowers.

Regards the bird nest - the tree it fell from is far too tall for me to climb up! If I could, I would. They are such dear treasures, aren't they?

xoxo
Claudia

Laura said...

Hey Miss June-
I know I say the same things over and over in my comments on your blog, but it is the truth: everything looks beautiful.

I can't imagine snow in October.

What do your roses do when it snows?

Jacqueline said...

Oh June, your garden is still so beautiful....I can't imagine that it might be covered in snow soon.
I adore hydrangeas......I also love them dried. Some people dislike dried flowers but, I still love them. They take on such a beautiful vintage look.
.... oh, and that front cover of the magazine is wonderful. Congratulations on being included but, I would have thought your photographs could grace the pages of many magazines. XXXX

sissie said...

Everytime you show pictures of your flower garden I can't get over the beauty. No wonder the magazine wants to feature you and your gardens. Congratulations.

Hello June... I left you a comment earlier, but thought I had best delete it... Jo~Anne has graciously asked to use one of my photos in her new magazine too, and I told you which one it was, then thought maybe I was not supposed to say that yet! Congratulations to you! I am sure your photos will be just as stunning as Jo~Anne's beautiful new magazine... I have pre~ordered two already! Your gardens still look sooo beautiful! I hope we don't get snow next week... I am not ready for it! TT looks adorable! BIG doggie kisses TT... xoxo Julie Marie PS My favorite photo in this post (besides TT) is the birdbath full of leaves!

wendy said...

Of course you should be featured in a magazine....everything about you is beautiful.

I wish I could transport you up here to walk through y "space" and tell me how to beautify and design my "someday yard".

Diane said...

Congratulations, June, for being selected for the new yummy magazine. Your pictures of your garden are gorgeous. I bet the whites with the fall colors is beautiful. Please tell me what kind of dog is T.T. Rabbit. What a pretty little thing he is. Winter will be here soon and I'm sure my garden isn't going to be ready because it's been so nice for so long. Blessings, Diane

Jodie (everything vintage) said...

ummm....
please forgive me June for saying this, I hope you understand...

I really hope the world keeps spinning at a fast pace for you. I know. I shouldn't wish that but...

I'M GREEDY, OKAY?

I'm so greedy because I LOVE looking at all of your FABULOUS photos!!!! And if the world suddenly stops spinning quickly for you, then chances are you won't grab that camera of yours and get outside for a breather...and then we won't see all of this garden goodness!!!!!

This is a "good kind of greed"...right?
0:-)

Seriously woman...when I grow up, I want to be just like you.
I'm a number one June fan.
I'm a June wanna be!
I have NO SHAME in admitting this to the WORLD!

Congrats on the magazine girl...you are Miss Romantic Home, Garden, Shack, Porch, Gazebo, Hammock, Kitchens & Baths, Studio, EVERYTHING!!!!!

Have I told you lately how much I love you?
I hope you can come down South and I'd find you at Homestead. The heck with the Hicks-Bolton people...I want YOUR autograph! :)))

(do you think everyone gets the picture of how much I admire you?)
;)

Rose ~Victorian Rose ~ said...

I can't tell you how thrilled I would be if I were you as well...to think... to be featured in a magazine....and a one of a kind magazine..so in reality a VERY SPECIAL ISSUE at that.

CONGRATULATIONS !!!!!! Dear one.

Love your photo's so much.

Congratulations on being featured in the magazine. Your studio, home, and garden are beautiful and deserve to be highlighted. Loved the pictures of the last summer flowers....just beautiful.

Debra@Common Ground said...

June, so hard to imagine that your hydrangeas bloom until snow. Mine stopped blooming weeks ago, and started drying on the bush. Such different climates even tho you are so much further north. Your garden is beautiful all thru the year. I always love to see what you have blooming and what you are doing.
lots of love,
Debra

Denise said...

Your garden still looks amazing. I love hydrangeas. I planted on bush here this summer but I think it just got too hot here for the poor little thing. I'll try again next year. Your little dog is just too cute. I bet he loves exploring your beautiful yard. Can't wait to check out the link and yes, the cover does look amazing.

Junebug said...

Okay, I am so impressed! First you post beautiful pictures, your garden is to die for, you are published in magazines, throw wonderful tea parties that create beautiful memories and have a shack & studio that is out of this world. Then you take the time to read every blog comment and comment back! Plain and simple you are Super Women with the biggest heart!

Fräulein Klein said...

Dear June,
the hydrangeas in the basket looks so beautiful!
I enjoy your pictures every time I'm on your blog!
Have a wonderful wednesday,

Just stopping by via Blondie and thought I'd leave a comment. Hope you don't mind.

Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous, each one prettier than the next! The older I get, the more I've become a lover of flowers and just nature in general. I'm continually amazed by God's artwork!

Rebecca said...

I agree-it is going too fast-anything we can do to slow it down and enjoy the moment-and picture taking is a great idea!

Wow June,
I don't know what to comment on first. Published!! Yippee! I love Jo-Anns style. I have an original painting of hers in my bedroom. It was a big splurge for me at the time. I can't wait to see it. Have you been in Artful Blogging yet? I think your a nature for that mag. The hydrangias are lovely. Do you save the brown ones after they dry on the vine? I love those. Hope your having a wonderful week friend. Lisa

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Dearest June,

You are really so kind to come on over and check out my previous posts! How kind is that?!

Yes, that is me with my dear harp; I love it so. It is my dream instrument, and only Ruben, my husband would make that dream come true. My daddy was a piano teacher and wanted me to follow in his footsteps, but would lift the top of his piano and do GLISSANDOS across the strings! Harps were and are very expensive, so my dad was not able to get me one. The miracle is that I taught myself only 10 years ago to play. The concept is the same as the piano, so no trouble. It is just a matter of learning how to use your fingers! STAYING YOUNG: LEARN SOMETHING DIFFICULT! Bless you and your dear son.....Anita

Hi my friend, I am in the car going home from San Jose California with my hubby. I'm using the WiFi and the lap top to look at White Wednesday. I've been doing it for about 2 1/2 hours. I am finally to your blog, my power is going to run out and I want to get your comment done.

Summer has been so short. We need to do an exchange this winter, to make it exciting. What do ya say?

We had snow the last day of summer last year!! It hasn't made its appearance yet this year for which I am grateful! We are leaving for a few days to pick up those clothing racks for our clothing pantry finally and I still need to get my bees all settled in for winter when I get back. I am hoping and praying the snow and cold will stay away a bit longer!

lovely photos June!

Congratulations on being featured, I think your style is beautiful. I've enjoyed reading back a few posts (goes to show how long I haven't been here), your garden is gorgeous, I'm sure it would look superb in all the Fall colours too.

Carole~Maynard Greenhouse said...

First congratulations on being in the magazine. What a great thrill and hopefully soon in WWC though I know Z doesn't know yet when that'll be. Your garden is still so lovely and it's hard to believe that snow will be falling but I have heard parts of Ct have had some already. It's been a strange year for sure.
Hope you take lots of photos before the snow flies!

I'm excited for you too, June! Congratulations, dear girlfriend!!! You could easily fill a whole magzine or book with all the gorgeous pictures of your home and garden.
The white hydrangeas are beautiful and it's great that there are still some of the lovely roses blooming. The weather forecast this morning said that there could be a few snowflakes today over here too. YIKES! I'm glad that this didn't happen so far. Right now the sun is shining :-).
Have a wonderful Thursday!
Big HUGS,

kerrie said...

Your garden, your flowers are as beautiful as ever. So I was visiting Rene at Miss Gracie's and she got a new camera and mentioned you...that you use a point and shoot? is that correct? do you capture all this loveliness with just a digital camera?

Congrats on the magazine...you deserve it.

Georgianna said...

First of all, congratulations, June, on the magazine article. I can't wait to see it! Your photos here are pure magic. I adore hydrangeas in all stages and especially love the softness of them in the basket. I dry lots of hydrangea blooms each year to decorate the house through winter and also don't mind if some shrivel up. The colors are amazing! Love all your roses, too! Ours are still going and I'm happy to say we are NOT having snow next week. It's been warm and sunny. Thank you for a very lovely post and I wish you a beautiful weekend. xo – g

Hi June, your flowers and garden are so beautiful. I wonder now how the weather is for you. We are still quite warm over here. Hard to believe October is just about over and we are still having temps at about 100 degrees. Ugh!Congrats on being part of A Feminine Home. Your home is just that. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Oh Junie!

You are PER-FECT for that magazine.... Your home and GARDENS....even the "shed".... done to perfection. I CANNOT wait for this magazine.... I'm going to pop on over to check on it.

Ahhh..... your posies are ALWAYS breathtaking. I wish you lived closer so I could tour your beautiful gardens in person. You do an amazing job. I picked some of my hydrangeas to dry....I think it may have been a bit early....they were white and turned a yummy green, but the did shrivel up a little bit.

Thanks for coming to visit.... I'll did out a little kid photo and post it one of these days.... :-) I swear my Mum must have stock in the starch company. Add some lace and maybe some flowers? DEEEE.LISSSSSSSSSSSSSH.

Big hugs dear girlie!

Dearest June, thank you so much for your kind and understanding words. I am truly touched. I'm feeling better by the day and the de-cluttering continues. Today I sorted out my wardrobes and took lots of unwanted clothes to Oxfam! Very therapeutic. I will be thinking of you on November 3rd.

Many congratulations on the magazine article, but it's no surprise they want to feature your home and garden - they are both so beautiful!

love
