one hot monday

flickr favourites

Today saw the girls back at school. Was there ever a first day back that wasn't melting (42 today), I can not recall one. They did look a summer older too today when I took their photo. Just a little post today from my flickr favourites taken I am sure in cooler conditions.

I have been really into blue lately and although I don't have alot of it at home, what I do have has been catching my eye...
new blue top
worn and faded blue
favourite thread
that beautiful soft teal colour of the flowers just in the top right

and this, mermaid splash. We will see how this blue goes in the bedroom.

summer days #2 - salty dog

We headed down to the coast to spend the day with some family and had so much fun. Salty dog, a new friend, loved the girls and was an enthusiastic constant companion. I am back at work now but am still feeling very relaxed and summery. I know the beach doesn't have a glow in these pics but the water was nice and warm and just right :)

summer days - mulberry splash

A big old mulberry tree growing along the river. We rode by on our bikes and stopped to watch pairs of women picking and chatting. We had nothing to keep the wet ripe berries in so we ate our pick as we went. Later in the day we went back donned in black and picked again, maybe not enough for mulberry jam but just enough for a delicious pie or crumble.
