blue & yellow {time to celebrate}

Here up north national day has recently come and gone and midsummer is around the corner, less than a week away.  As a celebration of all things Swedish / national therefore, something in blue & yellows to cheer us all up in time for this coming weekend’s festivities. Fingers crossed that the summer-sun will be showing her face!

“Autumn wins you best by its mute appeal to sympathy for its decay… ”             Roberth Browning 

The passing of time is showed ever so clearly in the subtle things that are constantly changing around us, reminding us that a season is coming to a close, yet within that also promising of yet another that is about to arrive. Here at home we’re slowing down, getting into gear for a holiday in sunny South Africa soon whilst working on a last few projects before this year takes its final bow.

I love the moss on our roof, thriving in the colder, crisp air  – and not least squirrel cheekily darting through our backyard hoping for a rich pickings in the lawn. Perhaps not so much the grey’ing days and dark afternoons, but the softness of the muted palette all around and the dreaminess of the early mornings shrouded in mist does turn this seasonal change into something rather magical up north.

Hope you’re enjoying autumn as much as I am,
