Friday art: Spring rain

Let the sunshine in!

Dear April, although i've got a very nice new umbrella, i'd love to pack it away until autumn and wear my equally new pink ballerinas. Rain is lovely sometimes, but look, we've been waiting so long now, can you PLEASE let the sun shine a little bit? Cheers to a sunny and lovely weekend friends, i so want to have tea with you outside!

  7. My beautiful and COLORFUL FRIEND,

    Even in these pictures, with the different color umbrellas, YOU SHINE IN YOUR LOVE for color. And you, like very few, always REMIND ME OF SPRING, even in the dead of winter.

    THANK YOU FOR VISITING ME; I always feel happy when you do.


  8. Yipeee, right after Anita!!
    Martina, dear, these photos are so terrific, but I am with you. We have been having chilly days and rain...and we are so ready for sunshine too! It will come soon!
    Keep smiling, and the sun will smile with you :)
    Wishing you a beautiful weekend...

  11. These are AMAZING photographs, Martina! WOW!!! And, yes, I hear you about the rain. It was a downpour here at times today, but this weekend, we are supposed to have sun and temps in the 70's!

    The other day I drove past a church that had a sign that read something like this...Whoever is praying for rain, please stop.


    Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  17. Good morning my gorgeous and hard-working friend!

    I so hope that you have had some time to HEAR THE SILENCE and make a moment for yourself to be inspired. I tell you, THE FOUR WINDS, coming from all directions, are sometimes too loud for me. But all will be well, and one thing I have to remember are all the kind souls around me, like you. What a pleasure it is to have you in my life.

    It is GOING TO RAIN TODAY! We need it.....have a beautiful Saturday! Anita

  18. I so agree...a little bit of sun would be wonderful...good for the soul! Happy week to you...and I adore your images today. xox
