No Place Like Home

Stay, stay at home, my heart, and rest;
Home-keeping hearts are happiest,
For those that wander they know not where
are full of trouble and full of care;
To stay at home is best. ~ Longfellow

Hello my lovely friends and welcome to No Place Like Home; a blog party where you are invited to share all your home and garden posts. A place to share your imagination, wonderful ideas and gifts with others. 

I would like to thank all you lovely ladies for your kind condolences and prayers over the past week. It is never easy losing someone you love and it is even harder when that loved one is so young. I know your prayers really helped the family get through it. The Lord bless you all!

This is my coral begonia on our back deck. It's doing very well. 

I still have a few Bordeaux petunias too in spite of the heavy damaging rains we've had. 

My last post of two weeks ago I had shared our little outing to Avonlea Village in Cavendish, PEI.

It's a charming little village on the north shore of the Island not far from Green Gables. The little village houses several buildings where our famous author of the Anne books, LM Montgomery, spent time. If you missed that post and you would like to see it, please click here.

I am honoured to have you link up to my party and I wish you all a delightful day.

Now let's see what you are creating in your home to make it a cozy place to come home to for your family, your friends, and yourself. 

Lord, this humble house we'd keep 
Sweet with play and calm with sleep. 
Help us so that we may give 
Beauty to the lives we live. 
Let Thy love and let Thy grace 
Shine upon our dwelling place. - Edgar A. Guest
