Early Summer dreams

After having been in bed all week, inredningsvis is now ready to take rejuvenated next step. I’m beginning this week with early Summer dreams. I am so tired of the cold which refuses to leave us, in favour of warm Spring winds. I want to sit in an apple tree orchard in full bloom, smell the scent of lavender and eat strawberries and ice cream :) I want to stroll along a warm Summer beach and let the sound of the waves rock away all signs of big city stress.

Over the years, I have however realised that I like living in a country with four seasons, because without the cold, there cannot be the feeling of longing for warmth and change. It’s like everything else in life, change is the key to true happiness. Without daring to change, we can easily get stuck in the past and don’t dare to take that first step out into unchartered territory. Without winter and darkness it’s not possible to experience the feeling of warm winds caressing bare legs in a Summer dress for the first time for the year.

So I am longing to let the winds of change take me away to an apple tree orchard in bloom, fragrant lavender and strawberries with ice cream :)

I wish you a warm start to the week.

LOVE M

    I Canada, I love the four seasons. There was a distinctive summer, fall, winter and spring. Here in France there is fall, fall, fall, and fall. I want to get away from this chilly air…but I love France to much. So anyways, thank you for the summery thoughts!

    Yes, here in Southern California it is sunny & warm almost year round. As pretty as it is, I grew up in the Rocky Mountains, snow and all, & I miss the seasons sooooo much. Sweden must be so beautiful in the Spring. Thanks for the pretty pictures. :)

    I miss the seasons. I grew up in the northeastern U.S. and then moved to Florida 16 years ago. We have warm weather most of the year and there is something to be said about seasons changing.
    Thank you for stopping by blog today. I’m glad you like it.

    What a wonderful post! I too have begun to appreciate the fact that I live in a four-season climate and to find the beauty in every one of the. But summer remains my favourite. :)

    Mmmm….this makes me wish I lived somewhere with longer springs! They are very short here. I am a hot weather kind of girl, but I understand what you mean. We wouldn’t fully appreciate it without the different seasons, or to feel the “firsts” of each season.

    Gorgeous images. I agree with you when you live in a place with four seasons you find yourself longing for each to return.
