It's a summer kind of post . . .

 Summer creeps in like a soft footed pretty little maid . . .  pirouetting in on slippers of gold.  Tis the season of wildflower meadows and picnics and berries and cream . . .  

For cloudless skies and starlit nights and sand-in-the-toes walks on a sunlit beach . . .


For ice creams and popsicles and butterflies and bees . . . .  he loves me, he loves me not and daisy crowns . . .


For skipping stones across trickling brooks and sprinkler runs . . . and wading in cold water that reaches to your knees . . .

{ whimsicalities }

For reading books midst insect's hum and picnics beneath the shadows of dark and leafy trees . . .  

 For tall frosty glasses of lemonade and soaring through the sky on invisible wings that carry you higher and higher, warm breezes on your cheeks . . .

For jars filled with fireflies and barefeet and slipping between cold sheets at end of day still smelling of the sun . . .

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” 
~F Scott Fitzgerald

Welcome Summer!  What took you so long!  Please don't be in a hurry to leave!

This was what I did yesterday afternoon.  I spent so much time on it we ended up having egg and chips for our tea!  Not that Todd minded.  He's an egg and chips kind of a guy . . .

Baking in The English Kitchen today . . . Walnut Slices . . . we the missionairies coming over to help Todd in the garden.  I thought they might like a treat.  These are so dangerously good you want to be able to share them, just so you don't scarf them all down by yourself!
