Ode to Summer

Sweet summer! How do I love thee? Let me count the ways …

I love out-of-control flowerbeds ...

... the promise of tasty treats

... spring chicks turned into happy hens ...

... and the first egg from the new flock.

I love kids who appreciate dirt and mud.

I love tall grass, rolling hills and the wild, blue yonder.

I love fresh-picked sweet corn.

Prospering gardens ...

I love birthday parties ...

And unexpected catastrophes aren't so bad ...

... when paired with a hardworkin' hubby, corn on the cob, watermelon and a cold beer on a hot, sunny day.

Photos from a midsummer evening … brief moments in a vast span of summer days. Take a walk … open your eyes … capture a moment. What does your summer look like?
