Summertime














Miss E enjoyed looking at the farm animals which were making a visit to our local shopping centre. She wanted to enter their enclosure for a closer look but once inside, wouldn't let go of my arm. A quick close up look was more than enough for her.

Sharing a little summer colour from my garden, thinking of all of those who are enduring a long, bleak winter in the northern hemisphere.

Miss O thoroughly enjoyed constructing a meringue tree from a kit, and most everyone enjoyed deconstructing it! All except our twins who are currently interstate for a week of cricket. They are playing cricket in heatwave conditions with the next three days forecast of 39C (102F) in their location. It sure is summertime in the land down-under. Thankful that our town isn't so hot and that we seem to be clear of the flood scares we've had in our town each of the last three Januarys!

The vivid colors and textures of your flowers are enthralling. You're right - we've had 2' of snow in 2 days and the wind is howling. Right now, I can't imagine heat! Yummy to the merengue tree.

Nie zazdroszczę córkom grania w krykieta przy temperaturze 39C. Upal trudny do zniesienia. Kwiaty w ogrodzie są cudne. Pozdrawiam.
I do not envy their daughters playing cricket at a temperature of 39C. The heat is hard to bear. Flowers in the garden are wonderful. Yours.

It is such a pleasure to see your summer flowers as we have a winter with lots of wet rainy grey days. The meringue tree of Miss E. looks wonderful, almost a shame to eat, haha.

After checking the blogs of my friends here in the wintery United States, clicking on your blog is so delightful, the color is what I miss the most in winter!

That meringue tower looks good. Love your frangipani photos.

How cute are those farm animals. Beautiful frangipanis. The geranium is such a vivid colour and such a lovely zinnia. The merangues look too good to eat! I'm glad you don't have flood warnings this year but the days sure are warm.
