Finally the summer holiday begins! We’ve been so looking forward to it, especially the girls. Free days to fill in with summery things and enjoying the rest and a slow rhythm.
Rest is not idleness,
and to lie sometimes on the grass
on a summer day
listening to the murmur of water,
or watching the clouds float across the sky,
is hardly a wast of time.
Poppies are blooming all over in the garden now, with their vivid red colours! I’ve sown a mix of different kind of poppies between the veggies. Some are coloured in white with delicate pink edges. What a pretty sight, and it changes everyday as they bloom so shortly! It’s always a surprise which new types of poppies are in bloom.
Of course the beginning of the summer holiday need to be celebrated and what’s better than a homemade dessert with fresh fruit from the garden!
As it happens, even my vintage skirt matches the poppy red color!
For those who have holiday, I wish you happy, inspiring and calm days!
