{Our Gazebo in Summer}

As a Mid-Week photo I love to show you our Gazebo in Summer...
The light is playing through our dogwood and also the Vintage Woodworks ginger bread looks like wooden lace...
Not very visible here but the Aged Copper Aluminum Slate Roof from +Interlock Roofing is something we still are very pleased with!
Together with our Balcony, it makes for a favorite spot to enjoy tea, lunch, supper or even breakfast!
The view of the pond and over the garden makes it just perfect.
Enjoy your day; wherever you are!

  3. Goede morgen Mariette ...
    Wat een mooie plek om lekker van je thee te genieten ...
    het is jammer dat ik zo ver van je af woonde anders kwam ik zeker een kopje thee drinken.
    Mooi die klompjes aan allebei de kanten van de ingang ...
    een fijne dag ook voor jou vandaag

    1. Lieve Nieneke,
      Ja, je bent van harte welkom maar dat kan helaas alleen maar virtueel gezien de grote afstand...
      Die klompjes kregen we van Pieter's Moeder en zij stierf in 1989 toen we nog in Italië werkten en woonden. Die hangen er dus al heel lang en blijven ook ter herinnering.
      Liefs en fijne avond!

  4. Hello Mariette, Blogger is finally letting me leave a comment today!

    Summer houses are such a great way to enjoy the leisurely weather of this season, focusing equally on human comfort, old-fashioned aesthetics, and getting close to gardens and nature.

    Enjoy yours in good health!

      We sure do enjoy this most favorite spot in the garden where we can be surrounded by the birds, squirrels and even have hummingbirds dive through the gazebo. Overviewing the pond is so peaceful too. Nature is the best medicine for human beings to be fully at peace!

  7. Good Mariette, Your Gazebo is a beautiful place to sit to enjoy the shade. I love sunshine, but I much prefer sitting in the shade, looking out at the sunshine.
    I love what looks like lace, but is carved wood which you have added to your gazebo.... you have such a wonderful sense of detail.
    Enjoy your day.
    Best Wishes to you.

      Yes this is a very pleasant spot and with the fan running above head makes it very comfy to sit and relax.
      Don't you think that 'lace' can come in many varieties, even carved out in stone like one can see at the Taj Mahl e.g. This wooden lace work is so lovely and it sure did add a very romantic touch to our home and gazebo. More in the style of Gone with the Wind...

      The Dutch wooden shoes are from my dear Mother-in-law and will remain a fond memory of her. They are hanging up for over 30 years now; first at our previous home.
      Enjoy a lovely evening yourself.

  9. Your gazebo is so beautiful. It must feel really nice to sit down there and spend some time having tea, dining, reading, relaxing, etc.
    It's been a bit chilly in the morning. Feels unusual in August in Georgia. But I think it's very pleasant to have breakfast outside :-)

      We thoroughly enjoy our gazebo, it is such a lovely place to sit quiet and relaxed, in the midst of nature. Our felines always do join us and lie around on the wooden deck floor.
      Indeed, with lots of over cast the temperature has been a lot milder for the time of year. Usually August can be oh so hot; but this is pleasant!
      Enjoy your little deck with the boys.

      Jazeker, het heeft iets van 'Gejaagd door de Wind'... door de bouwstijl met het mooie houten ginger bread. De houten klompjes zijn nog altijd een dankbaar aandenken aan mijn lieve Schoonmoeder van wie wij ze kregen in 1983. Ze blijven opgehangen; waar we ook wonen.

  15. My Dear Mariette,
    A perfectly beautiful place to enjoy a summer day! I know how hard you work to take care of your beautiful home and gardens, so you most likely don't get to sit and relax as often as you like, but I am glad that you have this charming and shady spot to contemplate all of your hard work. Lovely.

  17. Dear Mariette,

    How wonderful your gazebo is (love the clogs) and looks like the perfect place to relax and have a cuppa and be one with nature with the birds and the bees. Reminds me of a band rotunda in the park, which was opposite the home I grew up in.
    About the Anagypta we can buy some of the designs over here in NZ but for some reason they do not keep the Dado one in stock and said they can't get it hence having to try and track it down ourselves.
    Happy weekend

      Thank you for your kind words and yes, those clogs are from my dear Mother-in-law, given by her when we left for the USA on August 29 of 1983... Almost 31 years in three weeks!
      Too bad you cannot find your selection in NZ but even if it is hard to get it, the reward lateron for having found it is even bigger! Patience is the key word...
      Hugs and happy weekend to you,

  19. what a wonderful place to relax Mariette. It looks wonderfully refreshing, and so lovely that you have water nearby. And in response to your comment on my blog, all three of our children went to/are going to Hillsdale College. It is a great place for an excellent education. We're fortunate it's practically in our backyard (1 1/2 hours away).

      Let's hope the typhoon will not be as severe as a couple of years ago; nobody wants that. Even in Hawaii after so many years they were bracing for the first strong hurricane Julio but fortunately he did not hit the state!
      I always is a scare for all people living in the region; getting water and food etc. and praying.

      It is a very lovely outdoor room to have.
      Even though in summer it is very hot and humid and only the fan cannot take hat away. When it rains you might get wet still from the rain that gets blown into the gazebo. We keep our pillows in a bin to protect them from all sorts of moisture.
      But we do enjoy it on those milder days.
