I’ve been loving the gorgeous summer photos I’ve been discovering at Flickr. I like to close my eyes and pretend I’m right there in the photo, enjoying a delightful summer meal, eating fresh fruit, painting with light, happy colors … I’ve been snapping some summer photos of my own, looking to freeze time a bit, so I can pull the photos out when fall fades into winter, and I’m longing for long summer days and evenings, plump berries, open windows, cut grass smell and just the way it feels to be smack dab in the middle of summer.
*This thick slice of Amish fruit pie is from our local market (the raspberry is my favorite). The pies make a delicious dessert but an even more delicious mid-morning snack, especially when enjoyed in the soft gray tones of morning light with a good book. (And speaking of good books, have you ever read anything by Elizabeth Berg? She is a favorite of mine this summer. She writes such beautiful, true and poetic novels about ordinary lives.)

*I never tire of looking at and appreciating the beauty of summer flowers.
What has captured your heart this summer?
