Summer breezes are blowin’ through the open windows of our farmhouse country kitchen and I’m lovin’ these cooler days. Seems like we’ve either had rainy days or 90 degree days since June, so now that the humidity has left and temperatures have cooled to the upper 70s, I’m a happy camper! One thing I love about summer, my favorite season, is the abundance of wildflowers free for the picking! Each month sees a new variety popping up and I’m always dragging them into the house. My latest round of flower gathering brings a little summer into the kitchen.
Can you believe I found this big bunch of yellow wildflowers for free? And no, I didn’t steal them from the neighbor’s yard. One of the advantages of living near the country is that there are plenty of roadside wildflowers. They eventually get mowed down so I try to pick them before the mowers get to them first.
Simple cabinets and open shelving help create a farmhouse country kitchen. No fancy, modern amenities in here. We don’t even have a dishwasher and I’m completely okay with that. Hubby and I enjoy washing dishes by hand.
My mother always told me, “Clean up as you go” and as much as I sometimes didn’t want to hear that, she was absolutely right. It makes final clean-up in the kitchen much easier. So I do still try to listen to my mother – she’s a wise woman.
Yellow and purple are opposite each other on the color wheel so I like to use this combination to add summer styling to our farmhouse country kitchen. Do you bring wildflowers into your home during the summer?
