Spring and Summer thoughts

Look at what I found reaching for the sky this afternoon. There were about 6 of them on the side of our house. What a thrill. Just look at that little bit of sunshine. There's even a bee inside, if you look closely.  And...we had a mosquito fly in the opened door today. Yep, a mosquito already. I know I am rushing things but speaking about bees and mosquitoes has me thinking about fireflies. It is such a treat to watch them dance in the night. Aaah summertime is just around the corner. Watermelon, freshly picked corn on the cob, walking on the cool grass, swinging, listening to the evening symphony brought to us by all of the insects. Frogs, the jingle the ice cream man's truck plays, the smell of sunscreen, fresh juicy fruits, lemonade, iced tea, barbecues, flying kites, beach trip, daydreaming...

  3. It sounds like you are doing some lovely daydreaming. Those are all things we look forward to when we spend out summers in the States. Here it is just dry and dusty and too hot to venture out doors. We have mosquitoes now and one was buzzing around me all nite. Amazing the sound those little boogers can make in the silence. I did a lot of swatting and not much sleeping. Hope you are having a warm and wonderful weekend. :) Tammy

  10. When you see the daffodils, things just seem to speed up from there and before you know it, it's summer!

    I looked out the back window today and saw one little bright yellow bloom at the very back of the yard. I'll have to go back and check it out tomorrow.
