Summer seems very shy this year, but I couldn’t be enjoying it more.


Today,I am hooked on my new photo editor, Picasa 3. Some times Photoshop is just too time consuming for me to even attempt. So, I broke out my Picasa and simply added sweet words. Stop by Hooked on houses and see what others are hooked on.

    Hello dear C!
    Our feelings are the same in blogging. Comments make me keep on going.
    As you may know, Sweden have a very wet start of summer. Yeah! we’ll celebrate the Mid-summer tomorrow 19th of June but unfortunately the weather is hilarious.
    Yes, am whining as am freezing and I want to enjoy the short summer. But when Mother Nature decides, no one can keep her away from what she decided—he he…
    I am enjoying whatever weather come across my way. Life is too short to whine to everything. Just loving as always my pure & simple life.
    Hope you can join my 1st bloggie BDAY surprise on week-end.
    xoxo from the chilly & wetty Stockholm…

    I want to reach out and touch the thistle it is so true to life. Super pictures.  Jane T.

  15. I love that red pop of color. Well, I do love all the beautiful pics you have here, but I am very partial to red at the moment.

    They’re a beautiful shade…hope that’s a sign of great colors ahead for your summer!

    Have a wonderful weekend, Claudia. 

  16. Beautiful captures, and I’d like to try Picasa myself some day.

  17. ooh I’ve been meaning to try out Picasa too! Great pics, I must try it!!

  18. Tamara says:

    I just LOVE your photos! I keep trying to get our growers to try grow those red hot pokers but so far, no one agrees with me. maybe if I show them this picture they’ll change their mind 🙂

  19. susan says:

    I agree…I think we’re skipping spring altogether here in CT!  Great photos!

  20. Porch Days says:

    I use Photoshop Elements. It is simpler than the full blown version but still you can do lots.

  21. Claudia,
    You have an artist’s eye and definitely a much better camera then me lol! Every time I visit your blog I leave with inspiration.


  22. Beautiful pictures.  Here in texas the summer is anything but shy, want to trade?

  23. I will definitely have to check out the Picassa editor! Thanks for sharing such beautiful pictures.

  28. The Mexico Group line up for their Nationwide Anthem for
    the duration of the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup match in
    between South Korea and Mexico at the Dwight Yorke Stadium on September 8, 2010 19.15 However
    several are professing England’s team as the most tough (I refuse to contact a
    team with Balotelli, Suarez and Rooney everything demise-like), Team G definitely
    tends to make a claim. Germany and Portugal will be favourites but Ghana and United states have equally been
    capable of springing surprises as underdogs United states even managed it in
    opposition to Portugal in Suwon in 2002. Wayne Rooney doesn’t sing the national anthem,
    but when he is on song then England are authentic
    World Cup contenders.

    The United States was selected as part of Group C in the
    World Cup, joining Algeria, Slovenia and England. The United
    states of america is favored to get out of this group
    with wins over Slovenia and Algeria, but the match on June twelve in opposition to England will be a great indicator of how significantly
    this American staff can go. On the second working day of the
    tournament, the two groups will square off in Rustenburg in front
    of a lot more than 44,000 fans. This match will determine the front-runner of Team C, and maybe dictate the relaxation of the World Cup for the United States.
