Despite the rain-rain-rainy weather and cool temperatures summer IS here. I know it - not just because it's the first of June now. I know it also because...
...little colourful heads and faces are nodding at me from everywhere.
...after the sudden downpours the pollen gathers and decorates the gray pavements with its chalky yellow.
...Eetu the bronze statue drinking from a spring has the water running again.
...and not just the cultivated flowerbeds but even the weeds are beautiful!
...Marimekko has delicious and dreamy summery window displays.
...we can leave the balcony door wide open.
...the dandelions are sending out their parachutes.
...and there is a gorgeous red rose again on the coffee table, marking the end of school. After this I only need to study the stack of baby name books on loan from the library, and the art of folding a cloth nappy!
Have a lovely Sunday and a happy June ahead, people!
