It’s winter at the moment in Australia. Contrary to popular global belief, you can still freeze your freaking arse off, particularly if you live in Melbourne. Today, we got a tiny taste of summer – top of 14 degrees celsius and sunny, and I’m so goddamn desperate for vitamin D I nearly dusted off the bikini and garden hose sprinkler so I could have myself some bloody cold summer delight.

The thing I miss most about summer, as evidenced by my Pinterest history, is the time you spend outdoors. When I wasn’t frolicking maniacally with the icy garden hose earlier today, I was trawling the interwebs for places I’d like to sit with friends… sipping aromatic cocktails in the early dusk… giggling a little too loudly and a little too long… enchanted by a spontaneous but breezy acoustic set (Oh god, the adjectives came too easily, the pain of winter is real). Here is a top 10 series of images I’ve compiled that depict the outdoor living that my body is craving so.

WARNING if you miss summer, these images could will make you weepy.
