That Time of Year

As the years go by the seasons seem to come around quicker. For me, winter is barely gone when the summer heats up and brings all the things we expect from the season, such as:

One of my favorite summer bloomers, the purple cone flower.


We are picking black berries every day.

Ripe tomatoes, potatoes, green beans, squash, and okra make summer meals a delight and bring to mind family meals of years gone by. Accent those meals with the heat and humidity, the sound of cicadas in the trees, and fire flies at dusk and a person gets a feel of one's place in the universe and a feeling of belonging to that place.

beautiful blog and captures the feeling of summer. Our blackberries aren't on yet but I do look forward to when they are.
