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.

A climbing rose bush.
We had a Seven Sisters rose bush in our yard.
Dandelions. Who can resist making a wish?
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.

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.
sundress and sandals
An endless summer.
Are you ready for summer?
