Seasonal flowers and salty air

Heureux celui qui peut d'une aile vigoureuse
S'élancer vers les champs lumineux et sereins;

Celui dont les pensers, comme des alouettes,
Vers les cieux le matin prennent un libre essor,
— Qui plane sur la vie, et comprend sans effort
Le langage des fleurs et des choses muettes!

 Charles Baudelaire

Happy is the man who can with vigorous wing
Mount to those luminous serene fields!
The man whose thoughts, like larks,
Take liberated flight toward the morning skies
--Who hovers over life and understands without effort
The language of flowers and voiceless things!

With this post, I’m leaving you...
 I ‘ll be back at the end of summer.
Enjoy your holidays whatever you do, wherever you are!
A big hug to all of you

  4. When I see you pictures, I always get the feeling of going on holidays, beautiful. Love the poem of Charles Beaudelaire, most of his poems are sad, but this one certainly not.
    Have a happy summer!

  5. I wish you a lovely summer Olympia! The best!
    Warm hug,
    Psst...beautiful photo´s too!

  6. Oh, what gorgeous lovelies, all of them, smiling at us, as if to say, 'Yay! I'm on holiday, are you?'. The colourful fishing villages, unmistakably Greek in design and dazzle, await your adventures, in and around their sunlit, stucco abodes. Happy Summer, Olympia and thank you for sharing your salty air - it is fabulously fresh!


  7. I hope that you have a wonderful summer and look forward to seeing you again before too long! xx

  9. Heerlijke uitnodigende plaatjes van zon,zee en Griekse sferen!!!
    Een schattige dochter die volgens mij al gereed staat om een fijne vakantie te vieren.

    Lieve groet!!

  16. I've just returned from our 'summer in Greece' a most interesting four weeks that won't soon be forgotten. . .and sometimes fate steps in and changes all those anticipated memories to new ones that you weren't prepared for, but that will always be with you. Hope you have a wonderful time away. Look forward to your return. Happy days and wonderful memories. my best, Jackie
