S*H*A*D*E


To sit in the shade
on a fine day
and look upon verdure
is the most perfect refreshment
Jane Austen


I adore the shade these days as it's extremely H*O*T


Happy Thoughts! xx

  43. Oh I agree with you on that, only I won't be feeling that way until much later.. It is still Winter here in Australia and all but hot. Instead it is bitterly cold, the coldest we have had for 30 years and though I embrace this (I am Swedish after all), I can only dream about the pleasures and Summery fun you guys have back in Europe!

    Thank you for finding me, my blog and for showing me the way back here. You had me at your gorgeous profile picture and introduction! You guys exude positive energy and I can see that I will love it here!

    Hugs from Sydney
