Umbrella stand 

 This unbrella stand is certainly not needed in our Sydney weather – it’s 40 degrees right now – and summer is yet to arrive. 

But it looks great with unusual design solution – and why not use umbrellas anyway. To shield from stron sunlight. Check it out  the e-commerce site @ClippingsDesign.

Summer isn’t just about sun, warmth & hot long nights, at least not lately. We have had a fair share of rain in Sydney. In other states, much more unfortunately.¬†That which causes joy for some can cause problems for others. With joy in this case, I can readily admit that I like the kind of rain that we have in Sydney. It’s not cold in any way, but when the rain falls, it falls a lot. Much rain, you could say.¬†Sometimes, it falls for a short while, so that the air feels refreshed. Other times, it seems to be going on for ever.¬†Not that it bothers me. There is no bad weather if you know how to dress, it all depends on the clothing you wear.

I bought a neat umbrella the other day, in suit-plaid-patterns – in different shades of gray. It took a while to find a stylish model with wooden handles & hefty design that can withstand resistance. AND that does not fall apart as soon as it begins to blow a bit.¬†We have a number of countless black umbrellas lying in a basket in the hall for all visiting friends & acquaintances – who often want to take a walk in the pouring rain … when it rains, that is.¬†They are not of the best quality, so we have to replace them every season.¬†The umbrella syndrome, is either that it’s forgotten somewhere or that¬†it breaks somehow.¬†It is what it is … an umbrella!

By the way, it’s beautiful weather today – perfect & around 28 degrees. No umbrellas here today!
