Still June

I have been so late with my post that I am still in June here in the blog. Anyway, it is Summer time and I am keeping myself and the kids extra busy. I thought it was worth to post those pictures of one our day trips back in June.

First, we made a stop at Harbes  Family Farm for a quick bite and where the kids played for a lit bit in the playground.

And then at Patty’s, Berries and Bunches to buy some fresh berries and enjoy their delicious ice cream.

The farms  are located right across from each other on the North Fork of Long Island.

Before, heading back home, dinner at Love Kitchen Lane, where we found delicious food and a  kid friendly atmosphere.

It was in the Fall the first time I was at Lavender by the Bay. I promised myself that I would come back to see the lavender. And I did. It was breathtaking!

I was there, to be exact, June 27th. No words to describe the beautiful of the field! I wanna go back every year.

Lavender scent brings me back beautiful memories from my childhood. Lavender used to be my mother favorite perfume. And mine too.

Even the chairs are purple. So relaxing, just seating there and appreciate the beauty around you.

Of course, before we left, we stopped by the cute little shop and a brought home fresh lavender and a few beauty goodies.

I just saw today on Lavender by the Bay Instagram that the lavender are all gone. Now, just green fields, but there will be a English lavender bloom in late Summer/earlier Fall.

Hello, Summer flowers

DSC_0036

Summer arrived a few days ago and with it a lot of fun!

I am still ver busy with the house, but, I  have to admit, I am putting the organization a little to the side in order to enjoy the outdoor as much as I can with the kids.

We had been to the beach and the beach club, movies and just playing outside.

The backyard is beautiful! Everything flowering. Hydrangeas everywhere. Different colors too!

Peonies, to my surprise, in my backyard. I almost died when I saw it! I love them. They are among one of my favorite flowers.

I haven’t taken as much pictures as I used too. I have been a little lazy. I am not bringing  my camera with me when I go out as I used to. I don’t know why. And then, of course, I see beauty in front of me and no camera.

DSC_0075

Yes, a lot of flowers here. Anyway, it is Summer and that is what we are supposed to see!

Hello June! You arrived so fast that I didn’t even see May went by. I was so busy and I am still busy that was not much time to play with my camera or even to stop by here.

DSC_0005

Anyway, Summer is already here. And I am happy for it! Our first trip to the beach was this past Sunday. No pictures, though, I forgot to charge my camera battery. Shame on me!

DSC_0652

We moved. Still a lot to do here, but we are getting there.

The pictures here are from ending of April. I didn’t even have time to enjoy the blossoms. I hope I am back on track.

There are so many reasons I love the month of April. But, I think it is the Spring flowers that we start seeing everywhere.  Forget about the fact that it is my birthday month. Actually, today, I am getting older.

Still so busy, but I don’t want to miss those beautiful Spring flowers here. So here and there, I try to snap pictures.

My camera decides to act eerie and these pictures didn’t come out so great. Good enough though, to show the beauty  of Spring! But, it is driving me crazy, as I have no time to go check what is going in on with it.
