il sole

The sun was shining this morning.
Bright uninterrupted streams of warm light from a cloudless sky.
It feels like forever since we have had a clear day like this and I decided to lap it up.
I hung my washing on the line just knowing I will bring it in tonight smelling of light, with that crisp slight stiffness of being dried outdoors and that it just may still be warm when I plunge my hands into the bottom of the basket to pull it back out and fold it all.

The boy and I sat outside on the day bed on the front verandah, chasing the sun in the north, to drink our tea.
His chamomile, mine lemon myrtle.
Him swinging on my legs and me reading my gardening books.

Both enjoying the view to the garden and the streams of sun shining within it.

Sounds absolutely lovely.

Can you send some of the sunshine this way? I love your new winter header - those mud handprints are delightful.

Re the top garden bed from my post - it was a bed of scented plants. To be honest all I recall was lavender in that bed. The large draping plant was geranium-like.

Enjoy that sunshine while it lasts :-)

oh yes, there is nothing like the smell of washing dried on the line in the fresh air. Even more enviable on a day like today, with the threat of rain hanging in the air.

enjoy!
