My Phlox are a blooming and a itty, bitty, blogging break!

I am taking a wee little blogging break to spend a little time with the hubby and visit my friend Chari @ Happy to Design.  I am busy packing and all the usual stuff.  And I am super excited to meet Chari and her hubby Russell and see her beautiful home! 

And I just had to share with you my phlox!  They're blooming now.

And this is the view from our dining room table.  Oh I love it!  We can sit here and eat supper and enjoy this view.

We've had a lot of rain and it's been quite humid too.  Temps have been in the 80's and other than the humidity it's been gorgeous!  So take care everyone and I can't wait to share my pics with you!


  1. Oh how pretty! The color is so vibrant. Have fun on your trip and enjoy your time with Chari and Russell, Cindy!...Christine

  2. Your phlox are gorgeous, Cindy!! They look like big flowering bushes!! I hope they stay like that for a long time. And I hope you have a great time on your trip. Are you driving? Give Chari a big hug from me. She is so cute.

    We have been in the 90's since Sunday. It is supposed to cool off for the weekend...I hope so, it's miserable. Yuk!


  3. Your Phlox are so very pretty...what joy they must bring to you! Have a fun little break...I love these breaks, you come back to renewed! :D

  4. Enjoy your break, and your visit. The flowers and surrounding greenery are a welcome sight, and just beautiful. Can't wait to catch up on your photos when you return.

  5. Enjoy your break and your trip, Cindy.

  9. Hi Cindy,
    Your phlox are amazing. What a beautiful color. All of your gardens are beautiful. My flowers are not doing well at all because of the mini heat wave we've been having. Yesterday was 102*. Today was in the upper 90's and we haven't had rain for weeks.
    I'm finally getting back to commenting and blogging again. I was on a break because my mom has been very sick. I will write more another time. Hope you have the best time on your trip! Hugs, Loretta♥

  10. Hi Cindy,
    I wish mine looked like yours, but they don't.
    Yours are absolutely stunning.


  11. Such a vibrant color. I do love summer phlox. So pretty-I would certainly enjoy that view too.

  12. Have a safe and fun trip! Your phlox is beautiful.

  18. I love your flowers and that you get to see them while you're dining. Have a wonderful time with your friend, it's always nice to meet one of our blogging friends for the first time!

  19. No, wait! Cindy, I wanted to ask what color of paint your shutters are...Our trim is brown on our home...the stucco is white..it needs help...
    I don't want RED red. You know...
    Anyway...if you read this when you get back..do let me know..ok? Barn red? Brick red? :) Just guessing.
    See you when you return. How is your Mom by the way. I hope she is doing well.
    Love and hugs,

  20. Your phlox is just stunning Miss Cindy. Mine have come and gone a long time ago. Sometimes they come back if we have a good fall.

    You have the best break filled with loads of fun and blog fodder.

    God bless ya my friend!

  21. CINDY! (sniff) I'll miss you!
    Have fun in my most favorite place in the world! You are going to love it!!!
    Your flowers really are gorgeous - now do the deer eat them? We had a baby deer out front this morning - don't know quite how he got inside the gates . . . hope he got back out again. UGH!
    Have a safe trip! Give us a shout out every once in a while so we know all is well!
    HUGS! Karen
