The geraniums on the porch are in riotous bloom!

So sweet and old fashioned and pretty.

I took the ferry into work a few times this week!

I work in Boston and it takes about 40 minutes to get there by sea.

I'm not sure what kind of bird this is.

It was on top of one of the channel markers in the sound.

The folks next door take a walk together in the mornings before work.

I can hear snippets of their conversation as they walk past my window

on their way back home.

It warms my heart.

Mornings are lovely out on the porch

with a cup of tea

gentle sea breeze 

seagulls calling out to one another as they breakfast

all the air warming up around me

scented with geraniums, roses, and the quiet Atlantic



  1. What a lovely commute via the sea.
    There is something familiar and comforting about geraniums.
    Your porch looks like a great place to start and end a day.
    Thanks for the journey to your part of the country.
    Have a lovely weekend.

  2. Good morning, Kara. Your bird is an Osprey that has made a nest atop the channel marker. Lovely photo.

  3. Adore this Summery post!

  4. What a lovely, cozy porch! I love your water pictures - I miss living near it. We have pink geraniums on the back patio really coming into their own now - I love them!

  5. That must be a fun commute! How lovely your porch is! YAy for sitting in the mornings with a fave drink and enjoying flowers and salt water smells. Enjoy the weekend!

  6. What a lovely view you have from your porch! And I love geraniums. My mom always grew them so they hold a special place in my heart.
