How to Spend Time In The Summer: An Illustrated Primer

Knitting socks...

Enjoying cups of tea with a friend...

Cutting flowers to bring into the house....

Reading under the trees....

.... or under a sunshade.

 There was rain, and excrutiating heat, but there was also birdsong, bright sun, soft wooly clouds overhead, acrobatic squirrels, an everchanging bounty of flowers, the sound of crickets at night and cicadas at midday, the dappled shade from maple and ornamental fruit trees, the splash of the birdbath, the crunch of clamshells underfoot, and the whimsical journey of trailing vines.
(Including one that keeps trying to wend its way through the back doorway.)
Hoping everyone has had a relaxing, beautiful summer
full of time to breathe and be restful. 
Looking forward to reading what you've all been up to...
