Summertime




Summer seems to be passing so quickly for me this year. I was sitting on my side porch in the warm July sun and as I listened to the birds and felt the warmth of the sun on my face, I noticed the flowers were as eager as I was to absorb the sunshine. I wandered around my yard with my camera and tried to capture the smell and warmth and quietness of a Maine July day so I may refer to them in the depths of -20 degree days in January to remind me that winter is not forever.

What a wonderful start. I just got started blogging last week and I am loving it!! So far, I haven't been told to hush, lol. I love the pics...the peonies are lovely. Mine are long gone for this year. The bloom in late spring here in southeast MO. Gonna add you to my bloglist as soon as I finish my posts on OFG.
