Summer Sunday and Quiet

The Dictionary definition of quiet:
peaceful, tranquil, saying little, being at rest, moving very gently, 
refraining or free from activity: a quiet Sunday afternoon

 Summer Sunday is upon us again and what I enjoy most is the 
peace and quiet of a day spent in our backyard.

Ok, maybe not so peaceful, wet dog who decided 
I was her best vantage point for giving a shake was not ideal...
but up to then, peace and quiet :)

Hoping you find peace and quiet this Sunday 
and for those of you whose Sunday has past...I hope it was a lovely one!

Thank you again to The Tablescaper for this wonderful meme concept.

  1. Very nice! Love your white cosmos, I have pink, light and dark purple, yellow and orange but not white. Happy Sunday!

  2. PS..for those of you who, like me, wish you could hang out in your pj's all day...I am feeling like a is 11:34am and I am still in them. Just loving these summer sundays :)

    Happier...I love white flowers in the garden..nothing like it as the sun goes down....I imagine fairy lights dotted in the moonlight.

  3. What a lovely Sunday, Jeanne. I've had a lovely Sunday also - very busy, but still wonderful in its colour and content. The sun is not shining in Sydney however, so I'm loving your sunshine-y photos...beautiful! Meredy xo

  4. What a lovely collection of photos. It created a very peaceful image - until the dog. That was just hysterical, but isn't that how peace is, usually interrupted by something. Glad you added the dog in.

  5. So many simple things here to savor. I enjoyed the visit! Jacqueline

  6. What a sweety your pup is!! I can tell you two have been playing a little ball. Hope you have a Happy Sunday!

  7. Jeanne, you have such beautiful penmanship! Of all your photos, the two handwritten by you, are my favorite.
    Wishing you a peaceful and quiet rest of the Sunday.

  8. Simple is soothing...and a pj day is absolute decadence!

    Love the images here today...your dog looks very playful...

  9. I love your idea of a peaceful Sunday even with a wet dog! Its the way a Sunday should be!

  10. Hi Jeanne, what a lovely little place you have here. I enjoyed my self looking around.
    Have a wonderful Sunday.
    -and thank you for your kind comment.

  11. Lovely post, Jeanne! Your flowers are so pretty. And is that a mango? Mmmmm....I love mangoes! PS.. I stay in my pj's all day long unless I have to go somewhere, lol, so comfy!...Christine

  12. Yes, all your beautiful images really do evoke the peaceful quiet summer days in the garden and around the house-- resting-- a wet dog adds a bit of zest from time to time.

  13. Love all of your Sunday shots. Summer fruits, good books to read in the sun, clothes hanging on the line,and of course the best of all the wet dog that shakes all over you.

    Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment, hope the weather is good when you get here, you know what they say about Auckland weather.."four seasons in one day "

  14. Oh such a beautiful quiet Sunday. Love that wet dog!!!

    Thanks so much for being a part of Summer Sundays!

  15. Your summer Sunday tells such a lovely tale Jeanne. And the dog really looks as though he knows exactly what he is up to! Make the most of the warmth - and bring all your winter woollies out here!!

  16. It looks like a perfect day to me! Enjoy, my friend!

  17. What a lovely, peaceful looking day. How is the book? I read Prep a few years ago and found it really entertaining. I love your photos, they're so evocative.
