I love summer. I love the heat, the sun, the green grass, the flowers, the wind in the leaves. I love summer.
And, I especially love our backyard in the summer. This year, we had some surprises. The bird seed that the birds knocked out in winter started growing and we now have a small sunflower garden. It is located in a beautiful spot below our deep purple clematis flowers. It has become my favorite spot in our yard.
And, for night time, I wove 400 mini lights for added enjoyment. We love sitting out in the evening, enjoying a glass of wine, chatting with our neighbors here.
I am sad to say that my clematis flowers are falling and today is cool and cloudy. I fear that my summer heat will have to wait until next year. It is just out of reach, and yet, I miss it already.
