A Little Dose Of Summer

Happy Wednesday everyone! Hope you are all doing well! I thought that we could all use a little dose of Summer. Just in case some of us have those “Snowy, Winter Blues”.

We are still buried in snowdrifts so high that you have to creep out very carefully at the intersections. Can’t even see over some of them. And the snow piles in the parking lots are HUGE!

I hope you enjoy these warm, Summery images!

Here is our front porch in the Summer. Look at all the green and the fresh flowers. Ahhhhhh…….

Can’t wait until I can sit here with my cold ice tea!

Now we are going to take a little virtual trip to Hawaii. These are photos that my nephew and his wife took there! Can you say paradise~

And what says Summer fun like playing in the sprinkler with your clothes on!

If it is cold where you are I hope these photos warmed you up a bit! If it is warm where you are…enjoy the warmth and get out into that beautiful weather!

Until next time. Take care. ~Sarah~


  1. I always love seeing your home Sarah and it looked so pretty last summer. Bbut since I really truly hate the heat so much, I'll enjoy my winter views for a few weeks longer. The brook out back looks so pretty running through the snow. The red berries show up so nicely too! I'll let the rest of you drool over the tropical weather while I am wrapping up in my warm robe, fluffy slippers and sippuing my hot spiced chai tea!! :-)

  2. Oh...if only I could crawl through the computer to those warm places. Thanks for sharing some sunshine and warmth. Have a great day.

  3. Sarah, your home is beautiful in the summer. I would love to be in my gardens right now. I have so many flowers. I love all flowers and yours I do see in the pot are beautiful!

  12. Sarah I enjoyed your Summer pictures thank you so much for sharing them!!! The pictures with the kids under the sprinkler brought back some great memories for me!!! Growing up in South Carolina Summers are so HOT as kids we LOVED getting under the sprinkler while we was out playing and our clothes would dry in no time at all because of the heat!! Oh what wonderful memories!!!


  13. Hi Sarah...........well that was a nice dose of pretties to look at. It never fails.........although I love the changing of the seasons, I am usually ready to move on to the next one before Mother Nature is ready to cooperate!

  14. Thanks for sharing the pretty summertime photos. I LOVE that bunny! I kinda like your snowy pics too though, since we miss out on that in Texas.

    Have a lovely day!

  15. I would love to go to Hawaii someday! Those pictures look so perfect right now! :) I don't know if I'm in the mood for hot, muggy, summer days, but I can't wait for spring!
