One Sunday afternoon while we were down in California last month, Ellen and I took a walk down this beautiful abandoned road. An old, forgotten orchard lay underneath the setting sun, and in the distance vineyards spread, carefully pruned.
We were so happy to have a break from working in the vineyard - for the record, my hands were too sore to hold a hairbrush. Yet somehow I managed to hang on to my pruners! :)
Torrential rains all the week before gave way to this dreamy landscape just before sunset, where the sleeping buds of spring were just on the verge of pushing through their harsh winter beds.
The sun felt good. Really good. I haven't worn sandals for...seven months? My bare feet rejoiced!
My wardrobe is full of greens, blues, and pinks - floral colors are my favorites. So when I saw this combination of black broomstick skirt next to a mustard tee in my suitcase, I was dubious. But then I saw my hat and flipflops sitting there, and I couldn't resist:) Black + yellow - way too much fun!
Happy clothes - hamming sisters. A day of rest and sunshine.
Just a perfect afternoon.
