The Summer is in full swing now. Here it is hot, scorchingly so some days, and thus my thoughts turn continually to cool escapes and daydreams. I spend my early mornings in the garden listening to the bees as they work among the flowers we are both visiting. Before the hot sun chases me back inside, I love to turn the spray of the hose skywards, tilt my face just so too, and close my eyes as the droplets fall in a refreshing shower upon my face and a patter upon the ground. Like rain!
A gorgeous hibiscus flower tucked in amongst glossy green leaves.
Colourful zinnias brighten our garden.
A glorious and golden Grevillia.
Eating // Simple, homemade meals to eat with salads on warm evenings.
Drinking // Sparkling spring water, chilled in the fridge, with ice cubes in my glass.
Feeling // Contented at home.
Making // A new, midnight blue dress in fabric covered with tiny flora.
Thinking // That these school holidays are almost gone and I'm not ready yet to give them up!
Dreaming // Of deep oceans, shady glades, balmy breezes and drenching rain.
Whatever the season where you live, I hope there are simple joys, like flowers, that brighten your Here & Now days.
