It’s so beautiful outside. Spring soon will turn into summer and the weather during the day is already so awesome. Early sunrise, long days, still cool nights and cold wind but that will change soon.

You need to be careful not to get sunburned as the sun is strong but the wind cool so you do not feel the UV. The grass is growing, the flowers are blooming. And the first strawberries of the season harvested. Just so great to be outside.

Looking forward to the summer BBQ’s. Let’s bring on Christmas.

Officially Summer – and how lovely it is

The first days of summer greeted with a mixed bag of weather. The first day was coldish and still wet with quite some wind. But that all eased down on the second day which turned into a nice, dry and hot summer day featuring blue sky and green grass.

Spring time – so beautiful

Nothing much really has happened over the last few weeks and hence our updates have been rather sparse.
One thing did happen however: Think it really turned spring.

The storm that was supposed to come was not too bad after all. A bit of rain that we loved very much and quite some wind with a bit of thunder and lightning. All that would have been easy to take, if it wasn’t for: Moonshine.

Who likes the weather when it’s raining and storming outside? No one – well, maybe the odd people that are happy that their grass is growing, like us humans inside. Oh, and the ducks! The ducks love it.

A break from the rainy weather

First day in a long time without rainy weather, so we went down into the valley for fixing things, moving things and play things.
