At Last

Summertime

It
begins for me as soon as 
it's 
safe to plant all the wonderful vegetables
that
taste of summer.

I have waited for the days to grow longer and hotter. 

At last it's time to be outside
to
 go barefoot
and 
 celebrate the sun.

  6. Beautiful photos. Here in Ontario, I need to plant the vegetable garden but it is too wet to prepare the soil. I hope it will be possible next week!

  13. You're sounding very happy, Dottie, and your photos show a true sense of cheerfulness.

    I'm still reveling in springtime. It will be a couple of months before I enjoy a fresh picked tomato, but I spotted some blossoms today. That's a promising sign!

  14. Good Morning Dottie, Your photographs have me longing for warmer days.... to eat freshly picked tomatoes would be such a treat.
    We have to wait a little longer for the warmer weather, so I will enjoy your photographs to remind me of things to come.
    Best Wishes
