The grey rainy November is at its end, the dim winter sun is hiding behind thick rain clouds and I am having a cold. This is one of those days when it’s okay to feel a bit melancholic, drink some hot blackcurrant juice and look at pictures of summertime while being lazy on the couch with a package of tissues.
As it seems, I have barely posted any summer pictures. I guess I was too busy enjoying the warmth – or maybe looking through hundreds of pictures and editing them just didn’t seem that appealing. Looks like I had a recurring theme in the summer photography: cats and flowers.
I am obviously a huge summer person and one of my biggest enjoyments are flowers. The bright colours, pleasant scents and the quiet buzzing noise of bees are simply relaxing. In the future I’d love to get my very own garden, but in the meantime I’m happy with my mini balcony and having my mother with her garden nearby.
To me summer has always been about looking around at the nature and observing it; the dandelions are blooming, the lilacs are blooming, the lupines are blooming… Time to pick nettles, time to pick clovers… And so forth.
At least I’m not the only one in this house who is a summer-fanatic: the cats love warming themselves up in the hot sun and looking at people and bugs on the balcony.
Have I mentioned photography yet? It is just so satisfying to take pictures that actually have colour and light!
