I love my garden, especially the pond! The Koi are always hungry and swim eagerly to meet me. Our turle Ted is always curious to see what i'm doing. The fireflies illuminate the dark and the bullfrogs sing their beautiful summer song.There is no place that can make me as happy!

Amery said...

Its a time to celebrate all of Gods creations up close and personal. I love laying out at night and counting the stars. Summer to me is a time of decompression!

I love spending as much time outside with my family as possible. Camping, hiking, swimming at the lake, running through the sprinkler, picnics...just love it all! Hopefully we get enough sunny days this summer to fit it all in.

I love summer because the roads are always clear and safe to drive on. It allows us to go visit family and friends without worrying about a snow storm.

KariLynn said...

I love the relaxing pace of summer and having my kids at home all day and just having fun together...

Jennifer Reynard said...

Well, assuming summer will arrive in Calgary..... I always love the fact
that we don't have to don the winter
jacket, boots, mitts and scarf thing every time we go outside. Love the warm late summer evenings and sunsets. Appreciate all the different fragrances from neighbouring flowerbeds.
Especially love practically having no schedule! Come on Summer!!!

Margie said...

Ahhhh Summer! What's not to love? I especially enjoy being able to go to the beach. Tending to the flowers and watching the squirrels and hummingbirds are activities that make Summer so special too.

Neisey said...

I love informal get togethers...BBQs and drinks around a pool...laughing with friends...etc.

Ruby said...

Summer is just plain Freedom. Freedom to go out in the good weather and walk. I appreciate all the sights and sounds that summers bring. Love puttering in the garden and finally see them bloom. The only thing that I am not happy with is the heat and humidity. However, the pros out weigh the cons.

wendy said...

I love being able to be outside and taking lots of pictures to scrapbook. This year I am also looking forward to going to South Dakota for vacation. A new place to explore and take lots of pictures.

I love everything about summer. It's holidays so time to do everything that doesn't get done the rest of the year. I can ride my horse, garden, holiday, and just enjoy a cup of coffee on the deck without running off to work.

The great part of summer is not wearing a winter coat, and I love everything about the summer.
