My Favorite Summer Things

I love summer. Let me share a few of the reasons why:

  • Flowers–Some of my favorites are roses, lilies, daisies, and hydrangeas.
  • Heat–It’s funny, because I don’t handle it well. But I love when it is hot enough to make boat rides and chilly lake water feel refreshing.

  • The umbrella table on my deck. I love to sit under its shade, sip on iced tea, and read a mystery novel.
  • The colors of deep green trees and grass contrasted against a deep blue sky that is dotted with white clouds. I even considered how to design a drapery fabric in these colors so I could see them all year-round.
  • Sounds–The insects chirping on a late summer evening and birds chirping early in the morning. Even the sound of lawn mowers makes me happy!
  • Fresh garden produce–You just can’t get a good tomato any other time of year. And I love fresh green beans, squashes, sweet corn, okra, cucumbers and peppers.


  • Wearing flip-flops.
  • Daylight lasting into the late evening.

I could go on and on. I know the summer months are coming to an end, schools will start in a few weeks, and fall will bring its own delights. But for now, I’m relishing the remnants of  summertime.

What are your favorite things about summer? What is your favorite season?
