Spring....Summer

I live in a country where we can feel the seasons. This past weekend was so nice, sunny and warm! In a few days it felt as if we went from the cold weather of winter to the warm sunny days of summer! What happened to spring? It was a perfect weekend to spend on our boat.



My daughters picked the first flowers of spring. The flowers made me so happy.


It's always fun to play with a little boat behind ours....




Everywhere there were “pulletjes”..that's what we call little ducks...we could not stop looking at them!



For me, a special sign of summer are the freckles on my daughters faces, soooo cute!

Lovely report from Holland spring! I wonder if the tulips are blooming now? I've bought the magazine with the doll, but my hands are aching so I am a bit careful these days.

What fun! I always hated my own freckles, till I read in a book once that every freckle was a kiss from a different friend... if you have lots of freckles, you have lots of loving friends. :P

Wat een leuke weblog heb je!! Heb 'm gelijk bij mijn favorieten gezet. Zelf houd ik ook erg van mini's, alleen op dit moment wordt mijn tijd opgeslokt door het borduurvirus..

Lovely weather- we are experiencing the same here in California. Hey Lucy, I was reading some of your older posts and I saw the compass quilt that was two thirds done, what is going on with that, did you ever finish it? It is so beautiful. Someday I will try to make one.

Love the pictures Lucy, those freckles are precious.
We are having lots of spring storms here in Texas so I am ready for summer.

Love the cute freckles! My son used to get them, too. He looked like a little Irish boy.

What a very sweet post. I loved the "pulletjes" photo. We have two sets of them here on the little lake I live on. So sweet.

My best to you. *karendianne.
