Summer Is……

June 20, 2011

Bright



Bountiful


Musical



Simple


The start of summer is almost upon us, and it is such a beautiful time of year. After the grey of winter and the delicate light of spring, summer brings such a warmth and vibrancy to our days.

No matter how your summer begins, I hope that it brings you a season full of long days, warm evenings, great food, vibrant color, and tons of fun.

Beautiful pictures. I love how vibrant the first part of summer can be. The middle of the season always seems so hot and brown, and the memory of the colors from those early days are cherished.

What a stunning post, well done! Our strawberry season is over now, but we made lots of preserves to carry us through 'til next year!

Sara, we love them so much too! I was there shooting for a book that I am contributing to, and I just had a blast. I have only ever raspberry picked there, so this was a treat. I didn't realize that they also have picks for cherries, golden currents and a few others. I think that this will be a summer long journey we take :).
