Summer Sitting, In Colour. . . .

 We added two more colours to our collection of beach chairs -- I trusted to Paul's choosing, knowing I'd love a random effect (he asked for the pink one, was corrected by the floor staff that it was fuschia, hmmm). . . and I do, so summery . . .  (by the way, each of these chairs was transported to the beach by wheelbarrow and boat, as we have no car on the island and they're a bit too heavy for the front of Pater's bike!)

I love the way they look empty, waiting for festivities, but quite happy to shelter more contemplative moments. . . .
And speaking of contemplative, I love the way they look when they're working hard, holding up a momma and babe. . .
Sweetness. . . summer sweetness. . . .
Again, I say, and now you know the refrain . . .
Ah, Summer!

  3. Your chairs look so welcoming and Harriet looks so peaceful. A sleeping baby with almost translucent eyelids is beautiful. It must be a happy time to have the daughters with you.

    1. Yes! Her eyelids are translucent -- it's a magical stage, isn't it?!

  4. I'm looking at my collection, painted to match the gazebo, and they're coming up short....those colours are gorgeous. I can't wait until a mum and babe are 'working out' on one of our chairs.

    1. Aren't they great colours? Thanks! (and I'm sure you'll put those chairs to baby use before too, too long. . . )

  9. Love those colors, so striking against the foliage and ocean. The mother/daughter photos are full of tenderness; how little Harriet is growing. Ah summer, indeed!

  11. I love your colours, and the sleeping babe, I have 2 adirondack chairs - both cherry red, but you have given me an idea...

    1. Well, cherry's a very cheery summer colour as well, but yes, there are rainbows to be had only a paintbrush away . . .

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
