But summer is so much more, everything flourishes. The grass goes at speed overnight even though I mowed it the previous day. The flowers and fruit in the garden make their appearance and make the garden look and smell wonderful. The heat from the sun fills the garden with the sensory delights of Honeysuckle and Lavender. Every part of the Lavender bush is infused with aromatic oil and I take a deep breath as run down the front path ever in a hurry!
Even our hair apparently grows faster in the summer, there appears to be a correlation between the summer heat and hair growth. My hair and nails grow like weeds anyway, always trimming or snipping something!
We can fling the windows open for a fresh summer breeze, I like to have the windows open every morning winter or summer, drives Mr J mad in the winter and he follows me around closing them!
We had a picnic in the park on Sunday afternoon with a pile of friends and babies and children, it was warm and sunny and everyone was dressed in summer dresses and shorts. The children ran around playing only stopping for a drink or a nibble, it was relaxing and chilled, finally the start of summer.
Summer also means dining al fresco. There's something quite lovely about dining in the garden when TC is fast asleep, popping open a bottle of something chilled and unwinding.
Summer ..... the best time of the year. I sometimes sit in the glow of the sun and remember summer's gone by, lost in my memories. I.♥.Summer.
Linking up with The Gallery at Sticky Fingers, this week's theme is Sun, what does it mean to you......
