Summer For As Long As We Have It

I just had to do a mini post about the weather here today. It is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!! Summer has definitely arrived in Wiltshire and much of England this weekend (smile) The sky is so blue. It has just lifted my spirits so much. I wasn't depressed or anything, but having the sun after so many grey days recently, has just awakened all of those summer feelings. I feel like going on a picnic or having a barbeque. You know, I used to take sunny days for granted back home in Georgia...no, scratch that. I never took them for granted because I relished them then too. My mother used to say she never saw anyone get so excited by a sunny day. LOL. But I guess that now I have a renewed appreciation for the days when the sun shines on everything like this. I like grey moody days too, but the sun just makes me feel alive (smile)

Our roses have started to burst into bloom now too. Beautiful! Hello Summer for as long as we have you! :-)

Hello Dori,

My, what a beautiful flower!

We're having a HOT day today. I can't believe it. I guess summer is finally making a statement by saying "I hope you didn't forget about me 'cause I'm still hot as ever." :-)

I used to take sunny days for granted, too as I come from almost one-season-land. Yesterday, we had a beatiful sunny Saturday here in Sweden and I felt like having a dip in the pool. I realized sunshine would always make me more alive and happier. :-)

Beautiful rose!

It's boderline hot here in California. I've been anxiously inspecting my tomato plants every morning, waiting for those green tomatoes to turn red! I've got peppers and cilantro growing, too! I can't wait to make fresh salsa!

I came by to welcome you to SITS! We're happy to have you with us!

Oh how pretty your tea rose is! Sunny day can definitely lift up my mood. I don't mind rainy days only if I can stay at home: cuddled up on the couch - reading a good book ;o)
The temps here are just in the sixties so I'm still waiting for my summer to arrive.
Enjoy your wonderful weather, Dori!

Jodi said...

Hi there Dori, long time no see, lol! I hope all is well with you and your family honey. I've missed you. And now I am going to really be busy with this class for church for the next ten weeks, and I think I am going to start serving at my church, just not sure in what area quite yet.

Have a wonderful day sweetie, and God bless.

Jodi
