Gardening

Sorry about the title, dear friends! But you know me, gardening has a different meaning to me than to most of you, it doesn't include that much of actual work with the green-stuff, just some to watching and enjoying. And oh, how green everything is, sun shines and it's been +20c or so for the last days. It's early still, I know, but as it might change so soon, I am enjoying this while it lasts.



There's nothing better than having a good, sunny spot in the garden, some suncream on your nose and pretty wools in a big, plastic bowl next to you (otherwise these woolens would have even more natural fibers included). My neighbors are making renovations to their house, and there's work going on constantly all day. I think I should feel ashamed sitting in the sun and knitting but... I just can't help loving it.



The designs are not that new, as my poor brain cannot take it now, but some new variations. Colors seem to get both brighter and lighter...Summer!



I also seem to blogging more regularly (this may not last but let's enjoy it now!) and somehow it seems there just are more and more things to photograph and write about. Summer becomes me (and this whole country, actually!) and I think we deserve some more sunny days. A few months would be great, thank you very much.



I am soon off to enjoy the sun with my Sis, we'll do a little shopping (before it gets too hot and crowded) and then we'll burn our noses in a cafe the rest of the day. Sounds wonderful, and I am wishing you the most wonderful, sunny and relaxing weekend! See you soon again!

Yours,
Mia

Hi Robin,

Hello Viv,

We enjoyed the sunshine whole day yesterday and it was so light ALL NIGHT too! I know, I should know by now ;) that the sun actually doesn't go down at all here in June but it never stops amazing me, I love it!

Have a wonderful and sunny Sunday!

Yours,
Mia

Dear Jane,

We've had wonderful weather here last days and today seems to be amazing too. It's only 9 and sun shines so bright already...And it actually didn't go down at all last night! Your weather sound LOVELY (yet a bit hot-ish?) but oh, how wonderful to go in because of the sun and NOT the rain! Kisses to Billy!

Yours,
Mia

That sounds like a wonderful plan! Hope you had a lovely sunny day with your sister. Your new makes are beautiful, I love how you create them so neatly, and the new brighter one in sunny yellow is perfect for these lighter summer days. Have a happy week, Mia.

Your beautiful creations amaze me Mia - they're just wonderful. I've just been over to your Etsy shop and one of your Moomin key fobs shouted 'buy me' - so I did :0)

Keep enjoying the sunshine xx

Mia said...

Hi Jill,

I am so happy you found something from my little shop, and I just took the key ring to Post so it should arrive soon!

It's hot, sunny and beautiful here, wishing you the very same!
