Digression: Flowery moments

While we were away, midsummer had turned to late summer. The sun's rays are tender and the humidity lingers in the air all day. The scents are different, more intense, now.

It has been raining often for the past few weeks, but there have been some sunny moments, fortunately...

... and some happy moments, too. Someone you know has been celebrating her birthday. :)

Have a lovely new week!
