Summer, summer, summer; I love it so. And not just because I still have 7 more weeks before I have to go back to work! The days are long and seem to pass slowly with no particular place to be. It is warm and green and lush. Some of my favorite things about summer are also starting to appear around me, a bit early I believe.
Zucchini quickly followed and I already have a few over-sized specimen. Meghan and I ate the first zucchini like this:
Breaded and shallow-fried, delicious.
Like many flowers in my yard and gardens, my daylilies seem to make later appearances than others I’ve seen around town. My first opened on July 5th this year.
And now that the butterfly bushes are in full bloom, the butterflies have returned to my yard. Surprisingly, the monarchs were the first I saw this year.
Another of my favorites of the summer season happens this weekend – the annual camping trip. I know that camping is not for everyone, but you can read about what makes this tradition with my group of friends pretty great right here.
Now that the heat wave that has had so much of this county in its grips for a while has started to ease back, I hope you are getting out and enjoying summer too.
