I sense summer

Perhaps I'm a little premature, or just somewhat hopeful thinking about summer already, given that spring doesn't officially even start till Thursday.

But this past week of sunshine and lighter evenings have made me a believer. In the change of seasons. And the circle of life coming around full-circle once more.

It's no secret that summer is my favourite season. I mean what's not to love?

We have been favoured with a milder than usual winter, if you don't count that freakish snow visit the other week. That could be why I've found it easier than normal not to wish the past few months away like I normally would.

But I think the credit for this winter being more bearable also has a lot has to do with the weekly dose of sensational summer photos displayed on Alicia and Kristi's weekly Crazy Days of Summer link-ups. I haven't been able to participate these past few weeks but as this is the very last week, I decided not to wait any longer to get my summer senses tingling with anticipation.

So awaken oh my soul. Let every sense come alive with:


Dreaming in fields


The blooms of our national Christmas tree (pohutukawa)


Excursions in pyjamas to watch Christmas lights


Wildflowers in summer haze


Picnics in parks


Sandy covered bodies


Learning to ride


Strawberries and cream


Jandals and sandals


Rolling in warm grass


Barefoot walks bathed in setting sun


So Summer, 
don't be a stranger, 
Come right in. 
You are very welcome here.

I'm trying not to be jealous, given that our summer is coming to an end, and it really wasn't much of a summer!

Still, that's Scotland for you!

I'm looking forward to autumn coming. At least the weather never disappoints in autumn and winter. They always deliver what they promise over here!

Enjoy your warmer days ahead.

Absolutely beautiful! I too share your optimism and sense of summer. I am filled with excitement that my folks are coming over to share the joys with us too!

I LOVE your beautifully chosen collection of photographs! Thank you! A delight to look at and to think of.
