Hi there, here we are again.......

Summer is almost over, no it is still lingering a bit here in Paris, it is sunny and warm. But soon the shadows will be longer, the sun will not make it over the houses anymore to shine on the balcony for Oscar the cat, and the wineleafs on the big wall which I see from our kitchen window will turn orange, red and brown, before they fall on the garage roof...


OK, ok, you know, I'm a bit ahead of time, this is just some kind of advanced nostalgia, so lets enjoy the souvenirs of a soft evening summer light somewhere in the fields in the middle of Germany..


I have to warm up for blogging with a soft beginning:) , it is good to visit everyone and say hello, to look at the multitude of new visuel inspiration on all your blogs...

Have a golden day
Andrea

Good morning,
For me good afternoon for you. My train ride is all the way to Flagstaff AZ in processed B+W film so soon there will be more verbal images and visual words from the rails. Some even as soft as this wonderful light you have in your image. enjoy pjc

Uih, da isse ja!!! Freude, die Bloggerwelt hat Dich wieder. Soll ich jetzt ganz schmalzig schreiben, daß ich Dich soooooo vermißt habe. OK: "Ich hab DICH vermißt"!!!!!!!!
Herbst, jepp, ich habe schon Herbstzeitlosen gesehen und die Schatten sind so lange, wie die Stoppelfelder kurz werden. Ich will noch keinen Herbst, aber er hat mich nicht danach gefragt.
Liebe Grüße und einen guten Wochenstart wünscht Dir das Wurzerl

Babs, hi,yes we would like to continue to bath in that soft summerevening light....

Genie: Thanks for the welcome and the weather was ok in Germanhy, we had rain too but then this did good to the earth and is made the summer less hot, which suits me well:)

Jess, I'm looking forward to read and see something on your blog about your Paris adventure?

Cris, Hi, oh yes, I'll post some more pictures, also with the garden dwarfs cause the garden dwarf story between Mom and Dad is still ongoing:)

Wuuuuuuurzerl:) Schôn dass ich wieder Deine wunderbaren Gartengeschichten lesen darf, ja lange Schatten, und hier in Paris Leute die im September immer besonders hektisch sind als beginne jetzt das neue Jahr und nicht im Januar:)

Meg, hello hello, so nice to be back yes:) I'll be around soon and looking forward to nice recipes on your blog (I love to read recipes, it is a different thing when it comes to actually DO them:)

Andrea, this photo so dreamy and summertime-like. Welcome back to Paris and to blogland. Missed your kind words and insights. Definitely, take it slow and easy. A little pat pat for Oscar.

Martine said...

Schön, dass du wieder da bist. Da sage ich dir ein warmes wilkommen und hoffe du hattest einen schönen sommer. Ich darf es ja eigentlich nicht sagen aber im geheimen freue ich mich schon auf den herbst. Herbst in Paris ist doch auch schön, oder?

Cestandrea said...

Suki, thanks for the warm welcome, oh how I feel liked here:) I missed your ponderings! Although sometimes when I could I came to read them a bit, without commenting:)

Cestandrea said...

Martine:) danke für den Willkommensgruss, ich bin auch froh, dass ich wieder da bin...und Du darfst es ruhig sagen, der Herbst ist doch auch eine wunderschöne Zeit, und ausserdem mag ichs, wenn es kühl ist, Du auch?

Katrin said...

Hallo liebe Hupsi,

schön, daß Du wieder da bist. Ich hoffe, daß der zweite Teil Deines Sommerurlaubs auch schön war und Du viele Impressionen mitgebracht hast. Die kannst Du jetzt eintuppern und im Winter wieder rausholen. Nun bist Du wieder so weit weg, aber ich schaue manchmal die Bilder von Paris an und dann freue mich.

Ganz lieber Gruß von Katrin

Kim said...

I adore your soft beginning. The photo of the beautiful field in Germany is amazing...what a beautiful, peaceful place! And dear Oscar...I hope you find a patch of sun for yourself!

I have missed you terribly! Welcome back...and give yourself some soft time! :)

Ich schick Dir mal Fotos von der Slowakei und berichte Dir inner mail, wie das war (arrrg!)

Deine Andrea

Cestandrea said...

Kim, thanks so much, and yes, the place I photographed is on a walk I have walked all my life, about a mile from my parent's house, and the light is so very nice there, even in autumn and winter.

Cestandrea said...

Tammy hi:)
Thanks for stopping by, I'll be at your place soon:)

Cestandrea said...

Cathie, yes, Oscar travelled with us, at least for the first part to Germany, he spent 3 weeks in the garden and being spoiled by the whole family:)
