I don’t really hate autumn. I do enjoy sleeping underneath my warm blanket, wearing knitted scarves, drinking hot chocolate, and eating boerenkool. But once the last red and yellow leaves fall from the trees, I start counting the weeks until spring. Because spring means summer is coming.

Since autumn is now right on our doorstep, I thought I would pay some homage to spring 2014. I never got to post these photos, mainly because I never really had any motive for taking them in the first place. As I feel kind of low-spirited about the end of summer, I thought now would be the perfect time to post these photos! They were taken on different days in the month of April at places around both Amsterdam and Breda.

P.S.: Earlier this year, I posted about the start of spring in my post about the cherry blossom season.

  1. The photos are wonderful, Roselinde. Wish we could look forward to that again. Autumn is upon us here. Temps are now in the 50/60s (F) daytime and 40s at night, rainy, windy, cloudy days, and the leaves are turning and starting to fall. I know summer can’t last forever, but it’s just too soon for such a sudden change.
    Is it the same where you are? Personally, I love summer, and could have it all year long. 🙂

    1. Thank you! Yeah, it’s pretty much the same over here, though the temperatures are still very mild (60/70s), which is nice! But the gloomy, cloudy weather is a real mood downer! I think because we had such an early spring over here the leaves started falling off early too…Summer is my favourite season too! 🙂
