The beauty of seasonal living...
The beauty of seasonal living is our topic for the month here at The Art of Living Beautifully. And in my opinion, flowers are one of the loveliest things about the changing seasons ~ Mother Nature is always producing something unique and beautiful. We are still seeing bunches of tulips where I live, so I’m continuing to enjoy their spring beauty. It won’t be long before they’ll be gone for another year.
I have made a few more seasonal adjustments at home, like switching out the books on this little table in the living room. Summers in France is a wonderful book, full of gorgeous photographs and ideas on hosting houseguests. The French seem to do seasonal living better than anyone. Diets and activities and homes change easily with the seasons. Embracing the glories of each season is just a way of life there.
Spring here means tulips and daffodils, warm days, crisp evenings and too much rain. We start eating less soup and casseroles and more fruit and light dishes. The nap blankets around the house change from warm and fuzzy to light and cool. Winter bedding is put away and warm-weather bedding is pulled out ~ with an extra blanket still on the bed for those cool spring nights. Seasonal flowers fill vases, and doors and windows stand open.
I would be interested to hear about some of the changes you make with the seasons. Do you try to live a seasonal lifestyle in any way?
Wishing all of you a lovely week...
