summer delights

Summer has arrived. Not just a time of year, or freedom from school. But a time of sitting in the grass with a book; star spangled skies, water spraying in the front yard, and laughter floating on the breeze rich with the scent of warm hay and honeysuckle. A time for freedom, and imagination to take over, and inspire the thoughts of every one--summer is a glorious season; rich with imagination, and beauty, hard work and pleasure. Summer has come. Blue skies, birds singing, eighty degree temperatures and sunburned faces are the main scenery. 

And you know what? I'm ready. Ready to dip my toes in a stream... or climb a mountain with the dogs trailing along... or visit the park swings, letting my toes touch the sky... 

What are your summer delights? 



  1. I love watching bats and catching fireflies with my neighbors.

  2. I love that line "visit the park swings and let your toes touch the sky" That is a great description...it does feel like that. To visit your friend's pool and get caught up in games, come home with a tan, hoping capture the summer clouds and sunsets, watching siblings chase after fireflies, relax and read all I want and enjoy the nature and family God has given me. Icees and VBS on the side *wink* I love he first, second, eighth and tenth pictures :) Sierra

    I used to very much enjoy winter, but I believe summer has won as my favorite season. :)
