Spring!

My partner’s father was just visiting from Brazil for a few weeks, so we got to play tour guide a little bit and enjoy the nice spring weather in the process. I take pretty much the exact same springtime photos every year, but what can I do? They make me happy. I thought I’d share a few of them with you:

blooming cheery tree

blooming magnolia

orange tulips

bird on a tree branch
I wish this one was mine, but alas. Credit to M’s father.

Picnic!

A toad enjoying the sunshine.

Apparently the only way I feel comfortable posting pictures of myself is if they're small and not enlargeable.

I hope the weather’s nice wherever you are; if not, I hope you can at least curl up with a good book over the long weekend. To those of you who celebrate it, have a great Easter weekend. See you next week!

  1. Happy Spring! It almost feels like summer here, but it is supposed to cool off a little. Pictures like that make me happy too.

  2. Beaaaautiful pictures. The blossom trees are so pretty right now. And you're better off away from the random snow and hail weather we've been having.

  4. Such beautiful pictures! And I know what you mean about self-pictures. Personally, I like cell phone pics because they're fuzzier! :--)

  5. Lovely pictures! I think that if I ever get to live in a country that has four seasons, spring would probably be my favorite. It's summer over here and really hot (nothing new there) but it's a long weekend as well so yay, getting a lot of reading done. Happy Easter. :)

  6. I think you look beautiful! And so is all that nature - everything is just bursting with color and vibrance. I especially love the bird and the toad!

  7. It felt like spring for about a week over here, but now it's back to cold weather. I'm sure you're glad to be back in Portugal hearing about that :) Beautiful pictures. And also, you shouldn't feel uncomfortable posting pictures of yourself, but I do understand.

    And can I see: fruit salad on a picknick sounds perfect.

  8. Gorgeous photos...I love the cherry blossoms! (At least, I think that's what they were.. ^_^) Spring is in full bloom that's for certain. The weather can't seem to make up its mind over my way but that's alright, we'll take what we can get. Have a great weekend...and happy reading!

  12. Beautiful photographs! I wish I could see YOU better, as I think I would adore your outfit.

    Strange, but I just noticed yesterday that I only like pictures of myself when I take them in a mirror. I guess I only like myself in reverse? Does that even make sense? C'est ma vie. *sigh*

  22. Yayyy, spring! All the flowers! The Japanese magnolias have always been my favorites of the spring flowers, but the cherry blossoms are absolutely gorgeous.
