From Summer Break to August Break

Finally, summer has arrived and I decided to enjoy it as much as possible and have a little "online summer break".

I thought some of you were doing the same, but coming here today I discovered that my Feedly feed didn't work quite as it should. I'll work on that - until then I apologize for not visiting...

Due to the crazy weather some flowers didn't bloom as expected, but you can always count on cosmos to show up, can't you? I was so happy to discover this beauty on one of my photo walks:

Speaking of breaks - today, Susannah Conway's August Break starts again. It's always such a nice atmosphere and considering it was during August Break 2010, I met some of you, I'm happy to participate again. You can read about all the "rules" here.

This year, Susannah also gave a list of prompts, and although I often have difficulties with taking pictures for prompts, I managed to do it today. So here is a photo of my breakfast - I love to start the day with fresh fruit, especially in summer:

Hi Rosie, Yummy breakfast, if they are peaches my favourite. The cosmos are just starting to bloom in my garden, another year of photo opportunities.

Hello Rosie, happy August. I hope it is a good one for you. Love the white flower shot. :)

Is seems so long ago when we first started the August break! Love the light coming through your cosmos. I read your note on my blog, if you get to Sydney you must come and stay!

Lisa Gordon said...

This cosmos is beautiful, Rosie! And it's white!!! My favorite.

As I have been visiting blogs today, I have been seeing a lot of breakfasts. I am not at all a breakfast eater, but I am surely being inspired to give it another try! :-)

Have a wonderful evening, my friend. xo.

That's a healthy breakfast!! And in a circle. Your double covered. I haven't been bloggin much so you didn't miss me. I miss you though.
I'm going to try to hit this AB if I can. Maybe the whole not talking much will help. It's way quicker. Happy day Rosie.

I forgot where August Break was located! I'm already two days behind...and I'll be away from my computer for a week in the middle of the month when our youngest son gets married. I guess I'll miss August Break this year. ;-( Love your breakfast image!

Love the cosmo! I have lots of pink ones blooming right now. This is the first year that I've planted those and oh my, I can't get over how tall they get. Hope you're having a wonderful August :)
