Suddenly, we have Summer. Strolling into town yesterday afternoon I found people spread out on the lawns in the park. Just as it should be on a day like that.
Hard to believe that only five days ago I was still using my winter jacket because there were such chilly winds blowing. The last couple of nights it’s still been around 21°C outside on my balcony late late in the evening… Last night I stepped outside barefoot for a breath or two just before I went to bed. The damp evening air enhancing the fragrances from my plants (see previous post), the neighbourhood all quiet, all to be heard was the sound of a soft wind brushing the leaves of the big trees nearby… And I suddenly realised how much I miss that soothing sound in the winter.
The photos below are from the park in among the buildings where I live (just a minute or two away):
The crab apple trees have burst out in blossoms over the last couple of days too.
There are a few gazebos here and there as well, if you want to seek shelter from sun/wind/rain.
