a glimpse of summer


The weather in this little part of the Prairies cannot make up its mind. We've had crazy winds, dark clouds, heavy rain, and warm sun in a matter of three days. I'm surprised it hasn't snowed on us!

Today, however, was a perfectly sunny day. It started beautifully. It ended beautifully. I think we may be getting a little glimpse into Summer. And, what better way to take advantage of the lovely weather than to walk home barefoot through the field, to relish in a snack of fresh strawberries and golden oreos, and to take some time to read on the deck?

The evening proved that during the golden hour, life on the ground is just as beautiful as the colours in the sky.

Happy first of June, lovelies! I hope the weather is nice where you are.


PS. The blog is currently undergoing a few changes, so bear with me!


  1. Yaay to warmer weather!
    cool breezes can be nice --but I always need a really hot day, like you. :)
    Your pictures are amazing (what dSLR -- I'm assuming you use a dSLR -- do you use?!). And, I loved your description in the beginning of the blog post.
    Much love!
