A Nice Day Out


Said spring to winter:
"cheer up, you gloomy fellow,"
Answered winter to spring:
"you're a sunny cup of jello."


Featured: One final day out
before going into isolation.
Wishing you all great health
and all good things.

How lovely, Amalia, to be able to enjoy all that your lovely little corner of the world offers you before you go into isolation. But, I know you will dream up sweet imaginings and whimsical, lyrical poems, whilst you while away the days at home♥

Gorgeous photos. So calming and beautiful. Love your sweet poem.

junieper/Jesh said...

Beautiful landscapes, Amalia. I love the flowers and anemones, and the vineyard, and strawberries peeping from under the cover. Many thanks for sharing the goodness of the country side with All Seasons! Isolation is not a bad thing, when we think about it that we are never alone. God is always there, watching us and taking care of our needs. Of course, I as a painter I am used to a solitary life. If I wouldn't, only superficial things would come out of my brush.Have a comfortable and healthy week, Jesh

Our Hopeful Home said...

What lovely photos -- especially during these trying times. We've been at home since March 13th with a 20 year old, 18 year old and 16 year old. Oh, and a dog, too:) Luckily we have a huge yard and nice forest preserves to walk in. But that's been my only travel in weeks. But that's ok if it will help, as I think it will. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm, friend. Stay well. xo Kathleen
