    Thanks Mary, so many pretty posts! I going back to the tomato post to find that recipe for that tomato tart. I made the Patriotic cookie fruit tart and we all loved it. I was pleased with how nice it turned out. Another “keeper”. :) Thanks!

    Happy June Mary! June 1 is one of my favorite days of the year because it means the beginning of summer fun for the next 3 months! It also means the beginning of hurricane season, but shhh, we don’t talk about that around here…The tomato centerpiece has always been one of my favorite photos, it makes me want to run to the farmer’s market and load up! We are still recovering from Memorial Day, but all of your eye candy is giving me energy to start prepping for the 4th! Going back for a second look and pinning~

    Love your collection! Every one is special. June is one of my favorite months, because it is both my son’s and my birthday month. (We share a birthday – June 2). And as a retired teacher, June was always the beginning of summer vacation – what a lovely month!

    I love them all, but the Summer Market – You Say Tomato was a favorite one!

    Oh, my! I can smell the sweet fragrance of gardenias just looking at that photo. Of course, I’m savoring each and every one of the patriotic posts. Red, white, and blue is summer for me!

    I’d love to smell the gardenias! I always enjoy seeing all your wonderful arrangements and tables set for different events. In June I’m just excited to watch the plants grow and the flowers bloom and absorb the warm weather! I think we’re about two months later than you when it comes to spring weather!

    All the posts are pretty! I’m happy to see June because I know we will have warm weather….dont like it cold but love all seasons. I’m an outdoor person that loves nature!

    Happy first day of June, Mary, and thanks for compiling mosaics of summertime favorites! I wish I could get a whiff of that pretty gardenia!

    Mary, These links are full of such beautiful posts. It will keep me busy re-reading for a few days, and I do love to be reminded of your excellent ideas. I think I love June because it is the month when our flowers and trees really fill in, and it seems like another new beginning, a real shift to outdoor time. Have a wonderful weekend! Linda

    So much eye candy! Life is exciting and you live it and share it to the full! Thanks Mary, you are inspiring.

    Love, love, love these collection posts! Of course, I love the Provence Garden dishes. I love those gardenias, and I love tomatoes! Honestly, you make dirt look good in how you style it. As for me in June, I enjoy getting the garden into shape for summer, and then sitting back and relaxing in the yard reading, and just listening and watching the activity in the garden.

    I love all your posts but I have a question that is a practical one. What do you use to clean your boat seats? I cannot get ours clean. My husband says it is the age of the boat but last year they were fine. We do live on the gulf of Mexico and the brackish water/air may make a difference. HELP and thanks in advance.On another note… I cut gardenias today and have in a vase on our secretary. They smell divine!

      Hi Teresa, We use 3M Marine Mildew Stain Remover for the interior and seats. My husband just used a whole bottle yesterday and started on a second bottle, it still requires a lot of elbow grease!

    Such wonderful looks and recipes Mary! Have a wonderful summer. Thank you for sharing at Home Sweet Home!
