::: Summer :::



In summer, the song sings itself.

~William Carlos Williams

Today is the first day of Summer.......

Mia sings "Summer is about wearing dresses" as she twirls around me in hers.

Welcome Summer dresses and welcome Summer and all the things we love about you.......

Running wildly and barefoot through poinciana petals in the garden....

Our first sunflowers of the season......

The smell of stone fruit, eating mango's and sucking mango seeds in the shade......

And of course anticipating more, much more, of the beach.....


Happy first day of the season.....be it Summer or Winter for you!

Happy Summer to you! After looking at the photos I feel like I've been dipped in a bit of sunshine. And I too love the petal picture and also the joyful drawing.
