Warm Summer Colours




Summer is now with us here in Australia, along with its heat and bright colours. The recent visit to India by my husband and Miss E (20) will continue to impact our lives in many ways, as it should, yet the joys and challenges of each day are an ongoing blessing not to be missed.

With our current heat wave the pool has been in good use, except in the middle of the day when it's too hot. I love Miss E's attempt to dry her hair - with a little help from an older sister.







The poppies continue to bloom in their different colours. Their little seed heads fascinate me.




A brand new gazania daisy. Thankfully they like the heat and thrive during our summers.

Thinking of so many fellow bloggers who are experiencing short days and snow. Each season has its own beauty and challenges - sharing some warm summer colours with you today!

Summer has well and truly arrived here too. A pool would be lovely to cool down in for us tomorrow I think it will be spent inside with the air conditioning on. Those flowers are beautiful close up. I like the one of the white poppy, very pretty.

Wolę Twoje piękne lato, niż nasze krótkie i szare dni. Zdjęcia kwiatów są cudowne i z przyjemnością na nie patrzyłam. Pozdrawiam.

It is such a joy to see things from the other side of the world.I awake to see everything covered in white frost but there is beauty in that. Like you I love poppies especially when you see them wild growing alongside the hedgerows. Beautiful photos.
