Hello All Season’s Bloggers,

The link this week is open from Sunday May 6 through Wednesday May  9  till 7pm, Pacific time.
Many thanks for your lovely  and interesting posts and photos of last week! They give great motivation to start the week and say “Let’s do this!”

Now it’s May,  previously kind of vague and blurry things have become more clear and definite! Am feeling for the ones who are still waiting for a REAL spring, where the sun shines, and blooms  on the trees begin to form!
At the same time, hope for you who are in autumn, you enjoy the season changing and gearing up eventually for winter.

Several festive days in May:  Cinquo de Mayo already passed!
Bank Holiday (UK), Mothers Day (US,  Aust. New Zeal.,  Armed Forces Day (19th), Memorial Day). In my own family, birthday of the oldest of my younger daughter’s family)


This week it’s about small but important things for myself

A flute is fairly small, but can have a great impact on the soul.
In San Diego Old Town we often find some professional Latin players
in the open air to listen to.




Little Eiffel Tower measuring spoons, I found in a store in my area, many years later. One does not know beforehand which travel becomes  a defining moment in our memory.

Or for our children for that matter. Climbing the large Eiffel
tower was so memorable that our son
since then always had some Eiffel Tower statue in his room.
Since he lived in Holland for the past 7 years, has been back 3 times  … to the Eiffel Tower with fiends from the USA

For myself it was more the Mediterranean coast of Greece, Italy,
and France. I have not seen “enough.”
How is that for you? It need not be far away:)




Another small, but great mood-lifter like iced coffee (on the bottom).
Enjoy it while “they” think coffee is good
for you. It might change tomorrow:):)


Your turn to share what caught your eye or gives you joy this season!

  1. I love those measuring spoons!! I would bought those too if I had seen them while in France.

    May is a busy month for us. Both my daughter and I have birthdays this month in addition to Mother’s Day.

    The little measuring spoons are so cute and I like the hanger too. One of my favorite places to visit is the California coast but I must admit I love all coasts pretty much. That’s why I live in Florida. Sun and the ocean.

    We traveled from Florida to our second home in Illinois just in time to see the trees blossom out and the grass turn from brown to green, We especially enjoy making spring cruises and flights to Alaska as it is such a refreshing change from Florida’s clime. Those spoons have turned into family treasures!

    I love flute music – I have a couple of CDs that I listen to when I need a calming influence, or I’m doing something that requires heavy thinking and I just want some background.

    Places I’ve been that have captured my heart? Why, Montana of course!! And the countryside of the UK is a close second.

    Thanks for hosting All Seasons!

  5. I imagine myself in the mountains when I hear the bamboo flute. Maybe this will be the year the Husband and I venture out to the Sierras. It’s like I can almost smell Desolation Wilderness right now….Joyful joy, Jesh!

    I’ll come and join you for a refreshing beverage! Have a wonderful week!

    The Eiffel Tower measuring spoons are adorable. Thank you for another lovely party.

    We’ve had more spring in the past few days than the entire last 5 weeks. My allergies are in hyper mode and one eye that is threatening to close completely – and that’s with antihistamines 🤨

    Love, love, love the measuring spoons … anything with a fleur-de-lis on it! Great find and wonderful treasure!

  9. Beautiful measuring spoons!
    Love the ‘iced coffee’ photo! And I like iced coffee too
    Have a wonderful week!

    The flute is a favourite instrument of mine, Jesh. Bamboo flutes have a timbre that’s sweet and mellow. Lovely to glimpse your Spring, while our days here shorten and the temperatures drop…

  11. NATURE NOTES says:

    PS: Thank you for hosting!

  12. ALCHEMY says:

    Iced coffe is great on a warm day! Tick of approval from me 🙂

  13. A happy post! Love the shot at the bottom (there and in your header)…. that red plant makes me smile. And you made me laugh with your comment on coffee. I will drink it no matter what ‘they’ say! But it is so funny the way health advice seems to change by the day. Just live and be happy and enjoy each day!! That’s my theory anyway.

  14. Thanks too for hosting — I am not sure my earlier comment went through. It seemed to just disappear.

  15. Jeanna says:

    Ha, that’s right, enjoy it while it’s still supposed to be good for you. I like instruments like the pan flute played in the open air as well. There’s a sweet little park in a nearby town with a band shelter and I’ve heard a flute concert there, so calming.

    I have to agree that the little things are an important part of being happy in life! You asked about the flowers in my header: they are a type of dahlia from a local public garden.

    Measuring spoons are beautiful. I like the capture too.
    Thank you for hosting.
