TIME ON THE PATIO

Love when weather is mild enough to sit on the patio,
whether it’s at your house, restaurant, or coffee shop

Or roaming through the fields, seeing these bright
poppies squarely moving with the wind
Square

ice cream is a sweet reward after a long walk:!
And nostalgic, because it’s the family tradition
we eat ice cream every day on our summer vacations.

  1. Thanks for you comments on my blog, I can’t reply by email as you are a no-reply blogger but regarding the effects on the photo – if you are talking about the colour of it then I’ve just put a sepia tint over the photo, but if you are talking about the depth of field, it’s all a bit hit and miss, I use the Makro lens and hope for the best, usually ending up with about 2 or 3 photos I’m happy with out of about 50! I’m rather embarrassed to admit I keep my settings on auto unless I accidentally press something without realising it! I do try and do as little editing on my photos as possible but I do love a sepia tint every now and again!!

  2. I was up on our roof terrace till about 7.30 this evening, Jesh. Early evening is often the best time of day as the heat wanes a little and the colours over the water start to change. I love the outdoor life. We were walking in the hills again this morning. Thanks for joining me πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. Came on your blog and gave a comment on the sign with the high heels, but for some reason it does not publish my comment!( I thought it was a great warning, but since I have 2 brothers, I knew if I would do that, they would talk about it all the way!) Have a great week, Jesh

    1. I am surprised, for us (then in California) that was the most restrictive of the pandemic. No restaurants open, only pick-up at the curb, to get the food one ordered. Here in Texas (in August) things were much more relaxed – masks and social distancing were the only abnormal signs. All stores were open – waiting lines for some, of course.

    1. Thank you for comign by, Donna:) Now I live in Texas, I realize the patios are so popular in California, because the sun is not as hot, as here in the summer, not to mention the mosquitoes!!

  4. Nice and colorful photos. I am longing for some warmth and blooming flowers too. With a north wind it is still rather cold overhere. But still, I have made a nice walk in ‘the polder’ today.

  5. Awwwwww I wish I can ask for some ice cream from your kids Jesh!!! It’s been 30-35 here even during nighttimes and it’s crazy! Love to see those beautiful flowers and fair skies!!! Sending big hugs to Texas!!! Day 19 at home, I do miss the outside but with the strength of infection lately here in the PH (3x worse since the beginning of pandemic), I’m grateful to be home. Stay Safe!

    1. Thank you Rupali for visiting! Are restaurants where you live, closed? We are spoiled here . Since we moved here in Texas last August they were open (just social distancing and masks inside).

    2. In big cities the restrictions are often changing due to pandemic/ number of cases but the place I live except home office and social distancing all is like before You may find it strange but we have started using masks just recently.

    3. Am not surprized about anything anymore! Texas, the state, has declared to be back at “normal” according to the governor. But the manager of our county stil demands masks – sigh, so we are! The upside is that we are getting to know the details of the governmental/political system very well right now! (we are still Dutch citizens, but have lived her for a few decades).
