Ready for an Endless Summer

I can't help but look forward to summer and all the wonderful things it has to offer.  So, coming soon to a backyard, beach or park near you: Summer!

Let's start with tomatoes!  I love fresh tomatoes from the garden.  We had a garden when I was little.  Every morning before it got hot, usually around 7:00, my mom and I would tend to the garden and then pick some fresh vegetables.  Tomatoes were my favorite.  


 

We'd slice one up to serve at breakfast or make open-faced sandwiches for lunch.

Now on to summer flowers.  Oh how I love a garden!

Black-eyed Susans

 

A climbing rose bush. 
We had a Seven Sisters rose bush in our yard.
  So beautiful!

 


Dandelions.  Who can resist making a wish?

 

Daisies!

 


Summer activities....

Whether it's classic literature or a trashy beach read, how wonderful to find a spot in the grass and get lost in the world within a good book.


 

going to the county fair 

 
  
a summer picnic

  
finding a comfy spot and looking for pictures in the clouds
 

or being beneath a tree and gazing up at the leaves and shapes of the branches

 

An outdoor dinner party lit by lanterns.
Good food, good friends, a great evening. 
Sangria anyone?

 


Summer clothes...

jean shorts

  

sundress and sandals




An endless summer.




Are you ready for summer?
