It is summer and today felt like it here in the Pacific Northwest.
Savoring Summer Memories
At the Water Park
Playing dress up from the costume chest
Slip and Slide at Papa and Grandma's
All of the grandchildren's shoes lined up by the door.
Simple changes to make the room lighter and brighter.
Summer curtains and bird pillow.
The sunshine in the window helps to show it is summer.

I have read this many times and still enjoy the articles
"We've learned to do a lot with a little."
Jo Ann Gardner
I think we have been influenced by gardeners and gardens like the one in the article above.
I like to think that a lot can be done with a little in most everything we do.
We savor the time we are able to spend relaxing in our backyard garden in the summer.
The Summer Sun Shone Round Me
The summer sun shone round me,
The folded valley lay
In a stream of sun and odour,
That sultry summer day.
The tall trees stood in the sunlight
As still as still could be,
But the deep grass sighed and rustled
And bowed and beckoned me.
The deep grass moved and whispered
And bowed and brushed my face.
It whispered in the sunshine:
"The winter comes apace."
by Robert Louis Stevenson
Savor the minutes God gives you this summer.
They are a gift.
