While I enjoy all the seasons I have to say that my favorite seasons are spring and summer. I kind of dread the transition from summer to fall. Lots of people I know think I am crazy because fall is their favorite season. Once we get into a season I enjoy it, but the anticipation of spring and summer is much greater for me than thinking about fall and winter.
Summer means flowers, being outdoors with family and friends, eating outside in our backyard or on restaurant patios, dandelion wine, raspberries, farmers markets, long walks, long days, warmth, festivals, outdoor music, fresh produce, long road trips, kayaking, bicycling, waving at neighbors, spontaneous conversations outdoors, sandals, shorts, sundresses, time in my backyard hammock, cleaning the garage,……fun!
What is your favorite season? What does it mean to you?
We should enjoy every season – especially your favorite seasons.
Life is precious, capture its beauty. I am lucky to have a loving family, and wonderful friends. Like everyone, I have good days and bad days, happy days and sad days, patient days and crabby days, beautiful days and ugly days, etc. I try to “hold the bright side up” as much as I can because it makes me feel better, and I think it helps others feel better too. I am so far from perfect, but I try to be kind and respectful. I truly believe that life is precious and that there are so many extraordinary ordinary people and moments in life. I want to share and celebrate the “extraordinary ordinary” through my writing and photography.

Nice photos of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, which I suppose is what used to be called Quetico-Superior. I went on canoe trips there with friends several times in the 1950s.
