My love of summer is no secret to anyone. It may be hot, sticky, dry, whatever. I still love it!
Mostly, I love summer because the flowers are in bloom.
All summer long, one after the other, they bloom, and bloom, and bloom.
Now it may not have been the best summer I've ever seen in my garden. There have been casualties.
But no matter what, there has been something blooming all during this long, hot summer.
There are plenty of other things that I like about summer time. The birds, bees, bugs, and butterflies that visit during the summer are always welcome here.
Believe it or not, there are non-garden related things that I like about summer. Probably the best part to me is simply being warm. I'm one of those people that are often cold. I feel like I spend the whole winter just trying to get warm. No such problem this summer, I've been plenty warm the whole time!
I also like the long days, fresh summer produce, bare feet, vacation
trips, beaches, and all the other wonderful things that make up the best
season of all. Oh, and the flowers. Did I mention the flowers?
