      We forget that Australia has the opposite season to North America and Europe. Keep taking pictures. I love your recent work

  5. Happy Summer and Happy Adventures to you, Helen. Summer arrived with rain, more rain and more rain in Seattle. Oh well that's what keeps it the Emerald City I guess. xo J.

  7. We've has a glorious spring and a glorious start to summer, but today, the rains have come...which is fine as all of nature needs a good soak, and I have to stay inside to work on art...difficult when it's shining out!
    Happy summer!

  8. My dearest Helen, I adore this picture of you. It's very you! I'm so glad to hear that you are having a glorious summer. I know your dance card is quite full these days (who would be surprised to that? Everyone wants to dance with you) but I just want to say how grateful I am to have your delightful visits to my blog despite the hectic dancing schedule. You always bring a ray of sunshine to wherever you travel. Best wishes, ASD x

    1. Dearest ASD,
      You are most kind in what you say and I shall graciously and delightfully accept such a huge compliment from one so great.
      Your blog always delights my soul and you transport me to beautiful Scotland, a place I have been only in my mind. One day soon I shall see all the beauty your describe.

      Have a glorious weekend

  11. You are a classy lady; love the look of white and cream.

    And what song is happier than Martha and the Vandellas' Dancing in the Street? They are one of my favorite "girl groups" from 50s music.

  14. Hello, Lady in White! You look lovely, Helen! It's hot and beautiful, here in Italy! I went to pick up my sister from the villa... the sea is right across the street and I could smell seaweed... so wonderful!

    Off to plant some geranoums in window boxes for the upstairs balconies. LOVE SUMMER!

      Thanks for stopping by and in particular whilst in Italy, where I know you love and treasure every moment.
      Your life there sounds idyllic and I have visions of you walking the streets you strolled upon when a child. Keep smiling

  15. I hope to be dancing in the street in the next few days. We have driven 800 miles and crossed the English Channel in our campervan, to be here at La-Tranche-sur-Mer in the sunshine. I hope to sketch the yachts and wind surfers and try out some "motion paintings" soon. I have the easel, the paints and the canvas with me.
    Hope you continue to have a great summer.
    Cheers Gillian
