Start of Summer

Hi everyone, thank you for being so patient with me !
Summer is here, I can`t believe we are in June already, can you ? I am so sorry for not keeping my promise to blog more often.The weather has been fantastic for weeks so I have been making the most of it. Painting, doing some carpentry, and working in the garden as well.
A couple of weeks ago our apple trees were covered in beautiful clusters of fragrant blossoms. In full bloom, you won`t believe how amazing the smell is! I used every opportunity to walk by and have a sniff. This particularly morning I had been working hard, cutting down a couple of bushy trees, helping our landlord. Walking up and down the garden with branches in both hands countless times, which is quite steep, I was tired and longing for a break. I could not have been happier, having a break here at this beautiful spot. I put up our hammock between the veranda and these charming trees that overlooks the greenhouse. With my head on the pillow I was staring through the shimmering leaves, dangling my feet and thinking about how grateful I am to be surrounded by greenery and friendly neighbours...

Ik droom helemaal weg bij je post, Aina! Ik heb er helemaal beelden bij hoe ontspannen het is om tussen het blad door naar de zomerlucht te kijken.

Geniet van de zomer en van je weekend! Lieve groet, Ingrid

Dear Aina,
Beautiful photographs and, an ideal way to wile away the hours.....laying in a hammock, soaking up the warm sun and listening to the sounds of Spring.....I think that blogging definitely takes second place to that !!!! XXXX

Je hebt helemaal gelijk om nu te genieten van het mooie weer. De zomer is het seizoen bij uitstek om te genieten van al het moois, en om al die klussen te doen die met zomers weer net wat makkelijker gaan.

Je foto`s zijn prachtig, heerlijk met een glas wijn.... Enjoy Summer!

Liefs van Petra

Bloggandet kan stå tillbaka när tillvaron är så här vacker och det är kort blomning på äppelträden. Din hängmatta ser skön ut och jag gillar den gröna färgen!

Härligt i alla fall med ett inlägg hos dig, och jag blir så glad för din skull att du har vänliga grannar.

Önskar dig fina sommardagar!

Detta är bara en underbar tid.
Varm kram Gerda
