Strawberries, cherries, and an angels kiss in Spring


Sunshine!
About 4 or 5 consecutive days of it now!
I could just pee myself with excitement; it's  that taste of the Summer to come that I have been longing for....
We sat in the backyard for just a half hour or so after work and had a whiskey and ginger ale, just enjoying the  sun and the pookies galloping around like crazy kittehs.

Makes me feel calm.

The sunshine has been quite lovely, I have to admit. I wish it would stay like this though and not get hotter. I don't like it too hot.

My hair is getting dyed this colour today. Yours looks great. I'm still getting used to reading about southern hemisphere seasons. Feels really weird when we are fast approaching autumn.
Happy for you, its a lovely feeling. Enjoy.

Love how your hair is glowing red in the sunlight Helga, with those beautiful flowers, and I am jealous of summer being on the way over there, it's coming to an end here and it never really began in the first place! xx

Maria said...

Penelope Cat said...

Loving your hair and I'm so glad it's warming up for you - I love spring. It has absolutely *shat* down with rain here for most of today, along with thunder and lightning, so it's definitely Autumn already. Bah!

It's starting to feel like autumn here and I am getting giddy :) The only trouble with autumn is that winter follows :)

Dashfield Vintage said...

Isn't it amazing to have some sunshine! We've had a week of it too (up until today when it all turned to grey slop again). It makes you actually want to get up in the mornings for once.

Hannah said...

Oh bring on spring I say! Yes your hair is shinning in that light. The camelias are going off over here at the moment too!!! And the daffodils too of course :-)

Lynn Dylan said...

Oh, yay for you for sunshine! I know how I feel at the end of winter and cold and heavy layers -- there is nothing like the sun! We are heading out of summer here, so it won't be long 'til fall is here.

PS -- you are one of my fashion heroines!

Annie said...

Gorgeous photo! How lucky you are to have Summer on the way. It's completely passed us by this year. xx

SACRAMENTO said...

You are looking forward to the summer, and we are so sick of it.
After our break in England, it is still well over 35ºc, ahhhhhhhhhhhh

So when I want to pass out from the heat, all I have to do is come visit you!! We're still hot and beastly humid, but Fall might be coming slowly. I can appreciate your whiskey and ginger ale in the garden, since I'm waiting for slightly cooler temperatures in order to enjoy my balcony.

Enjoy the sunshine!!

Misfits Vintage said...

GLORY GLORY GLORY YOU ARE THE MOST SPLENDID SIGHT FOR SORE EYES DARLING! Hail Heavenly Helga! Your lovely camelias are beautiful... a few here but none as delightfully blooming as yours!

Love you more than FLOWERS! Sarah xxx

I immediately have a need for a whisky and gingerale. Too bad you didn't have any fun pictures of the crazy pookies!
