The first half of May has been wonderful. As far as I remember, we didn’t have any rain until today. The other day when I went to photograph the blooming cherries of my previous post (here) I was completely dazzled by the greenery bursting to life all around.
At six pm – that is four hours before sunset – a lacy veil shimmering in many shades of green was hanging over the parks and bordering the river.
I could have easily forgotten all about dinner if hubby hadn’t called suggesting we meet in the courtyard of the former school building that now houses a restaurant and microbrewery. We sat with our aperitifs at a table in the shade under the delicate fresh foliage and the perfectly blue sky with cotton ball clouds. Isn’t it only fair we have these long summer days and light nights to compensate for the weary winter season?
