The Best of Summer

“The sky was clear, the sun was bright and warm, and the scent of summer was everywhere”

Julie Garwood

Each season has experiences unique to that time of year. My favourite “summer specials” are

  • The smell of newly mown grass, grilled hamburgers, and roses
  • Enjoying swapping jackets for dresses, sandals and summer hats
  • The sounds of robins splashing in the birdbath, bees in the flowers, and songbirds in the trees
  • The breeze coming in open windows
  • Clear roads and green leaves
  • Enjoying meals outdoors, or just sitting in the garden with a cup of tea
  • The popping of pinecones opening, crickets chirping in the evening
  • The colourful landscape as flowers take turns coming into season
  • The taste of new potatoes, sun-ripened tomatoes and peas in the pod
  • Juicy peaches and cherries
  • The smell of thunderstorms and summer rain
