Summer Days are Here! - Giveaway to come

I got tired of swatching Fall (?!!?!) Chanel cream blushes and wanted to dwell on the new summer!  The season, not the products!  It has been a spectacular day yesterday and today and I am grateful and savoring it.

Yesterday, I had a rare evening in Manhattan with my family (as opposed to rushing back home after work).  We have a friend visiting us from Korea and we spent some time strolling and enjoying the sights and sounds.
Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village
This morning, I spend a few minutes in my backyard swatching, but got totally distracted by all the birds devouring the now ripe cherries from the enormous cherry tree.  In the span of a minute, I observed a catbird, several blue jays, a robin, a chipmunk, and a deer.
Unfortunate for me, the branches are super high and I can only stare and salivate at the pretty cherries.  (I admit I may have eaten a few that had dropped on the ground.  :/)
So far.
Northern hemisphere friends, how are you enjoying the start to glorious summer?  Winter-bound friends, how are you preparing for cold days?

I have a totally amazing giveaway planned.  I dropped a hint on Twitter the other day.  It's going to be a Cruel (very very Cruel) giveaway.  Can you guess what it can be?  ;-)

  2. Your own cherry tree! I only have a lemon one- they would make a good pair.
    Its cold for us Africans - not as cold as NY winters but cold for us- its making swatching and photo's a chilly business. Enjoy your warm weather- I think I've walked through that square!

    1. :) It's a great walking city and awesome walking through the Village and West Village.

      I'd love a lemon or lime tree! *dreams of the adult beverages one can shake up with that* Too cold here for that.

  3. What kind of cherry tree is that? here in the PNW, we are approaching our cherry season, not yet, but soon. We spent our day outside today gardening. A bit too late, I know, but better late than never :-)

    1. I haven't a clue what kind the tree is. Hmm. There is also another tree in the front that makes disgusting pale little cherries. This big one makes big fat red cherries that are pretty edible. Lucky birds.

      Does baby Lorp enjoy the outdoors?

    2. He loves the outdoor! He loves the bugs (he said "HI!!" to a rollypolly) and the squirrels and all the junky stuff he can find & put in his mouth. Gotta love toddlerhood :-D

    3. Cute toddler boy! :) Boy, they try to put everything in their mouths. I remember my girls going to the beach and eating all the sand! The aftermath was quite disgusting!

  4. Aww, I miss New York very much. Beautiful pictures, Belly, and I don't blame you for eating the cherries!
