Enjoying the Heat



The last six months of weather have been extremely unusual on our island. We’ve gone from more snow last winter than we had seen in decades to the wettest spring on record…

But, oh! The summer! Sunshine, sunshine, sunshine…with over 80 degrees daily! It has filled our wet, darkened souls with light and laughter. The joy of remembering the feel of heat on your back when taking a morning stroll, the warm feel of your dog’s fur as you give him an afternoon stroke in the sunlight, lazy afternoons preening yourself in dappling sun on a chaise…


Those months of dank have been worth these three full weeks of bone drying heat.


The biggest preoccupation is keeping the flowers (and birds!) well watered so they may enjoy the warmth, too! Join Mary's Mosaic Monday to see more! :0)
