Summertime, and the livin' is easy...

A few summer blooms for you, friends.





It might be sweltering, but summer is my favorite season here in Georgia. 


I love the symphony of frogs and cicadas and the sweet perfume of gardenias in the morning. I love the flickering fireflies and swooping bats at dusk. Even those wild summer storms--the thunder and lightening and torrential rains that seem to come out of a clear blue sky--hold a certain kind of electric magic for me. It must be the sweetness of summertime in the south.

Living is indeed easier in summer. We feel freer, lighter and ready to conquer some new life target.
Great summer blossoms of Georgia!

Nel, That's for showing us flowers. I love seeing what is growing in others' gardens. Hope you are doing well. Hello to your sweet mother. Blogger had hurt some of our blogs and it's hard to comment at times. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

It does look awfully warm but really beautiful!

Pilar said...

Beautiful photos! I love Summer too even though it is hot in South Carolina as well!

I LONG for the day when WE will be living in GA . . . I have to agree about all you've mentioned although I don't think we've been there in the heat of summer yet. However, a few months of sweltering heat is a fair trade off for 9 months with little or now snow haha!

I love that song...
takes me back to my childhood when I still have my Mom
who is really into music.

Your pics are so beautiful
and Summer is such a beautiful time.
We can go outside
swim on the beach and even have a picnic.
Not a summer goes by without those family
gatherings, since childhood till now
that I have my own family.

Have a great day ♥

I would love a symphony of frogs and cicadas. At least we get a chorus of birds to begin the day. Lovely blooms!

Hi Nel, loving all the pics. I am sitting out on the deck listening to the birds chirp right now. I love that sound. Hoping all is well. Been missing you guys.

Beautiful flowers especially the Hydrangeas xx

Carola Bartz said...

It does sound lovely the way you describe summer. I like it, too, but my favorite season is definitely fall. Not quite an easy living then though...

Ann said...

Hi Sheri,
Thanks for dropping by on my blog
and for informing me that my latest post
don't show up on your sidebar.
However, I do not know how to fix it
all I know is how to post
and then I just rely on blogger to do their
part... thanks anyway.

Have a lovely weekend ♥
