Spring into a summer day

The dog slept all day and the air was still, the blooming Wisteria enveloped the house with its sweet and heavy scent, not unlike the earlier hyacinths.

It was a first early summer day, I made fresh lemonade and nothing but a cold salad would do!
Later we fired up the grill and had dinner on the deck!
Tomorrow I will pull out summer dresses, bidding the cooler temperatures finally good bye. Bare legs again...

You can get it here!

Should I be brave and bring the oleanders outside? The nights can still be cold...

I might wait a little longer.

But to feel the heat at midday gave me such pleasure!
I drove to the next small town to pick up some things I needed and saw this vintage beauty. I could not resist to show her to you...

I picked some of my tulips and brought them inside, 

Tulips and some hazelnut branches

saved a tiny table from the curbside, got border plants to be planted tomorrow and welcomed the outdoor season with open arms!

Curbside find: cute little table

The sprinkler run in the front yard and there was nothing I wanted more then to just sit and watch the world go by.... 
Simple pleasures.

Wishing you all a week filled with simple pleasures!

  2. Victoria,

  3. Such quaint treasures - how sweet is that car and table? The tulips are so pretty too!
    It's sunny here, but cold, not quite summer, yet.
