Blue little flowers by Donald Sultan

Today is 1st day of May, the weather is beautiful in Athens, I’m ready to leave for a 3-days vacation, I will relax a little bit after a hard working week where I can’t feel my legs and I’m so so happy about all of these!!!!! I’m going to tick the 1st wish on my bucket list, the big project is about to finish (fingers crossed to go well) and I’m going for a small roadtrip that I so wanted the last months (i love driving on the countryside!).

Also, May is the month of flowers and especially today is such a fiest of them! That’s why I have 10 great floral patterns for you! I’m leaving while flowers are flying behind me…(ok you can mock me for my imagination!) Happy 1st of May everyone!

Pink for Spring!

One sunny day is enough to help the spring get inside me! I’m so looking forward for this season every year! It’s not my favorite-summer will always be the king-but I’m always thrilled for this changing of weather, nature and mood of people! So, inspired by spring today, I collected some environments that have this joyful spirit, with one common clue: pink color! What color would be more suitable afterall? Especially for this blog… Decorate with pink to bring the spring in your home!

Flower patterns for Spring

Second day of March and Spring just started! Nature will start to bloom and our mood will be lighter, that’s for sure! For welcoming Spring I gathered some flower patterns. And because I can’t wait they have a tropical flavor as you can see. Have a colorful week, month and Monday!

Spring officially

As today it is officially the first day of spring, some photos of flowers will be the perfect theme for this post. I really like the composition of some photos with flowers or food. A simple table, austere background and the colours make a statement by themselves. Today I will stay focused on flowers though…

spring, is that you..?

These days in Athens the weather is very shiny and warm for February. So that everyone thinks that spring is here but I prefer to be more cautious..I just wait.. to be sure.. and then I will be really happy! But what if Winter has more to give and keep it for the end?? For now, the almond trees have started to blossom everywhere and combined with the sun, makes the scenery very beautiful! Every year the bloom of almond trees is the start of spring, so we wait and see..until then we enjoy the gorgeous little flowers.

Αυτές τις μέρες στην Αθήνα έχει τέτοιο καλό καιρό που είναι να απορείς για Φλεβάρη. Όλοι περιμένουν την άνοιξη και έχουν αναθαρρήσει αλλά εγώ προτιμώ να είμαι λίγο επιφυλακτική ακόμα…απλά περιμένω..να είμαι σίγουρη..και μετά θα μπορώ να είμαι ευτυχισμένη! Γιατί τι θα γίνει αν ο χειμώνας μας την έχει φυλαγμένη?? Προς το παρόν, έχουν ανθίσει οι αμυγδαλιές παντού και σε συνδυασμό με τον ήλιο φτιάχνουν ένα πολύ όμορφο σκηνικό! Κάθε χρόνο οι αμυγδαλιές δηλώνουν την έναρξη της άνοιξης, οπότε περιμένουμε…μέχρι τότε απολαμβάνουμε αυτά τα πανέμορφα μικρά λουλουδάκια.
