Summer...

Feet in water and Zinnias
On a hot summer afternoon, to claim a well-deserved break !
A moment of coolness, feet in water.

Some Zinnias Antique bath seat of zinc
Summer in french Antique pantaloons and a pair of Birkenstock Papillio

An antique bath seat of zinc, found on my trip to the fair at the Barjac flea market.
I placed some Zinnias with hearts of tiny gold petals; in the evening illuminate some floating candles !

With water, I draw a heart on the zinc

Details of my attire of the day:
Antique pantaloons and a pair of Birkenstock "Papillio"

What a lovely collection of photo images! Your zinc bath is amazing! How I would love to soak my feet in such a bath on a hot summer day!

So refreshing amongst the pink zinnias...
