Sunny, Sunny, Sunny Weather…

I have been itching to do a ‘Thursday Challenge’. And today’s topic – “GOLDEN” (Fields, Sun, Flowers, Hair, Gold,…) seemed perfect!

You see, we have been having the most gorgeous weather possible! Warm days, gorgeously sunny, happy days! Can’t believe our luck, to be honest. It is quite likely that I will be cursing the weather next week, but for now, we are soaking it in. People are out in summer wear, children in shorts,clotheslines sagging under the weight of clothes and barbeques out – to celebrate the unexpected sunny spell. I had never thought I would enjoy the sight of clothes drying on the clothesline so much. For me, it is a bonus to compensate for the summer that I missed this year!

To add to all the happiness that sunny weather brings, another sunflower bloomed in my garden! Remember how happy I was with the first one? Well, I can’t contain my excitement now, because I can see loads of buds sprouting out too! Icing on cake, don’t you think?

See those little buds waiting to bloom?

The first one – soaring high, turning her face towards the sun!

The other sunny flowers in my house – store bought ones, not the fruits of my labour, unfortunately.

All it needs is a summer cake to be baked. Orange cake sounds perfect, doesn’t it?
