24/30 – it’s the little things

Fading. My favourite red roses are fading, they were the queens of my garden for a while, you can check one of them here. Now they are giving space for other flowers to shine. They are still pretty and I love the fragrance, the softness of the petals and the colours changing little by little. I hope they will bloom again, generally before the fall they show up as a farewell.

21/30 – it’s the little things

First day of summer! We had a heatwave last week, wow, it was hot, almost impossible to be outdoors during the day. This week the weather is pleasant, long walks are welcome and I’m enjoying the flowers around the neighbourhood.

This garden is so pretty, I love messy gardens with a variety of flowers, including wildflowers. It’s Nature’s design. Of course, I admire a manicured garden with all its flower beds and trimmed plants, but wildflowers have a special meaning for me.

Hope you enjoy the summer and make time to appreciate the flowers around you.

06/30 – it’s the little things

Good morning, afternoon, or evening depending on the time you visit this post. The weekend was just gorgeous, I spent lots of time outdoors doing spring/summer things, including enjoying this awesome sunset by the river.

I walked a lot, more than 20 k steps!!! I also prepared healthy meals with lots of veggies, but between us, I couldn’t resist a slice of pizza on Sunday evening 🙂 it’s was a veggie pizza if it counts in my favour.

A new week ahead and I wish yours to be wonderful!

Tree square :: Beautiful surprise

on my way

Do you know that feeling when you see an unexpected beauty on your way?

Yes, yesterday I had that feeling. This beautiful pear tree was on my way when I stopped by the grocery store. I’ve been many times to that store, but I’ve never seen this tree. Why? Because when I go, I always park closest possible to the entrance, and of course, no trees around.

Yesterday I was driving my hubby’s car, he is very careful with his car, and I didn’t want people scratching it with the shopping carts, so I looked for a distant spot for parking, and voila! This tree caught my attention. 

Sometimes changing the routine can bring us beautiful surprises.
