In Summer....


Oh summer, how I love you.
Idaho summer mornings can't be beat.
Dewy mornings,
cool breezes,
dappled sunlight through leafy trees,
fresh blue skies
(no pollution in my fair town),
birds singing...
sigh.
Let's just celebrate summer today!


It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside. ~Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy-Tacy and Tib, 1941


Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language. ~Henry James

                             


Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the blue sky, is by no means waste of time. ~John Lubbock, "Recreation,"The Use of Life, 1894

                             


In summer, the song sings itself. ~William Carlos Williams

Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


If it could only be like this always — always summer, always alone, the fruit always ripe... ~Evelyn Waugh


The best part about summer: cool, crisp, 6 am 6 milers through the north end! I love starting my day admiring the beautiful gardens that transform nearly every week ... first it was the tulips, then irises, poppies, peonies, and now a colorful explosion of roses at every corner! 
             ~Athena Barkdull (who just happens to be my son's incredibly awesome significant other..)

                         

I think I need some more blue chairs,
cuz you can never have enough
(said the lady who owns many blue chairs....)
And then I want to create a field of flowers like in the
picture above,
and sit in them.
; )

Sing it Chad and Jeremy!!!!


Happy June days to you,
my little 
bon bons.
May you have a day where you can just sit and
enjoy the bounties of this earth!

Love to you all!!!
xoxo

'Frozen'
Made me giggle and feel happy.

  1. A made-me-feel good blog. I love summer, too. When I first saw the bed hammock, I thought that would be fun to have.....then I thought of all the little birdies that live in my tree and another thought came to mind. No bed hammock for me.
