Autumn days at Fairybridge

Image
The summer goes by so fast, one day it's here full blast, hot and sticky and then one morning you wake up, go out for your early morning walk and the night wind chills you to the bones and the cold drizzle makes you wish you have your winter jacked on. Well, once you feel that, believe me, summer has turned it's back on us, it's walking away fast and autumn is already here before you even think about it. Before you had time to ask yourself where did all the time go, how come we didn't do anything interesting...again... 
Just work, sleep, work and brief glimpses of blue sky with deep gulps of fresh air here and there ... 


I hope it was better for you, I hope you had time to enjoy the summer, to travel, to go to the beach and swim until you feel week under the sun, to climb mountains until you had just about enough of rocks, wild fires and lack of civilization.
Me I had my salvation - my camera,  so no matter what happens I always have a way out, as long as I can take p…

Lazy summers

Image
My kids had a lovely lazy summer. All I asked for was:walk the dogs for 2 hours every day clean the living room, where the video games den is...learn to do your own laundry (including mad dashing outside because it's raining ..then putting them back on)wash all YOUR dishes and cups once I have done the wash up   That was not too much to ask, was it? Every mum can dream right?
Needless to say, they didn't do all of it all the time. Except walking the dogs, that is A RULE NUBBER 1 for us all, Because we love our lovely boxers so much that nothing else matters.
And still, they did have a lovely lazy summer, don't you think?

Fairybridge Lilies

Image
I never knew that lilies can be so outrageously beautiful. Of course, I never grew any before so I never had an up close and personal view before. Taking photos of the lilies in the vanishing daylight was quite an interesting and fun experience.  I got lost in it for a while and didn't even feel the gentle drizzle that almost dampened the mood.  But don't you worry, after the actual photo shoot comes the other fun part  - the converting of the files into jpegs so I can upload them to the internet and my blogs. Sometimes it takes a while but it is very rewarding  to look a the finished products.
And here they are, The Fairybridge Lilies

The Lovely Grass

Image
I know that normally people just admire the flowers because they are so abundant in summer but if you spent as much time as me walking in the countryside there is something you will notice and it will impress you forever, it is the lovely grass.
I have a weakness for the gentle stalks swaying in the morning breeze by the side of the road or sometimes as far as the eyes can see. Grasses are beautiful and come in so many shapes and sizes!!  Next time you walk pay attention to the lovely grasses so green and gentle and so pretty!! 
I do believe they deserve a post of their own.

Nothing can make you feel as summery as the lovely green grass basking in the first rays of the morning sun by the side of the road.  The fresh sweet smell of summer grasses floating in the air while you walk and the refreshing breeze caressing your skin while you walk...

It is the perfect summer scene!
