A spring in my step on a Sunlit Sunday

20th March 

I am feeling better, are you?  We may still have grey skies and there is still a chill in the air, but I can feel it lessening.  The days are drawing out both in the morning when I am now awakened by the cacophony of birds outside my window; and by the evening light lasting just that bit more.  Ah yes, I can smell Spring and Hope in the air and I love it.

It has probably helped that last week I was away as a travelling companion to pappa and we were in slightly warmer climes helping my well being and allowing me to have a little early dose of the very much needed vitamin D.

Genoa at dusk

Mediterranean markets totally outdo the UK ones

Such wonderful displays

Colourful and appealing to the eye and stomach

One of the best things about being away is coming home too and I was greeted albeit by cold weather but the sun popped out and shone through the window into the kitchen, what could be more sunlit than that?

In my kitchen this week

♥   Hope the sun is shining on you wherever you are   ♥


  1. Fantastic display of colorful fruits! The light has increased in huge steps, no need of electrich lighting in the morning... Isn't it nice!

  2. Such a wonderful array of fruits, displayed so beautifully. Mouth watering!

  3. Last week here was actually gloomy, cloudy, dreary, dusty but the past several days have been much better. Definitely puts a spring in your step when the weather is just right. Best wishes, Tammy

  4. Spring is such a beautiful season, enjoy.

  5. No sun for us today, but I enjoyed yours.

  6. Wonderful displays - we have had sunshine a few days ago - cloudy again today - but I got my new flowers planted yesterday.

  7. The sunbeam on the vase of daffodils is beautifully captured.
    It's good to go away, but it's wonderful to come home, refreshed and ready for real life!

  8. Fantastic market produce, beautiful colours. x

  9. Hi,
    Such exciting market! I enlarged your photo to enjoy them and found that some are new to me. Your kitchen looks cozy.
    Have a good new week!

  10. Beautiful photographs Selma. I'm just having a catch up and wondered where you had been. It looks like you've had an amazing time. That ship was huge!!!! I've never seen anything quite like it. I've set up my email now and will be blogging in the next few days. X

  11. That produce looks amazing. Nothing like a market for fresh food!

  12. The market does look wonderful and I'm glad you enjoyed your getaway to warmer climes. I do like your welcoming bouquet of daffodils in the sunshine!
