But despite the almost painful brightness of the sun and the unrelenting heat, there is nevertheless so much beauty. I especially love the early mornings, just before sunrise. The scents of summer are perfumed with a humid sweetness; milkweed blossoms in the road ditch, freshly mown hay across the road, and the green grass scent of our yard which hasn't yet dried to depressing brown.
I hope it rains soon, and I'll sure be glad for the cooler temperatures of Autumn. But right now I am actually enjoying summer.
|Colors are vivid in summer. The old fashioned rose at bottom grows in a wild corner of our yard and has vined into a scrubby tree in the hedgerow.|
