Glorious Summer Days

Summer has finally arrived, and while most people are not liking the heat, I am soaking it up. The flowers are blooming, the sun is hot, pesky bugs are everywhere, Goslings are so numerous you wonder how their parents can tell them apart. I yearn for these things in the dead of winter. I become desperate for them.

I can’t bring myself to complain about summer, not when it is so long in coming, and so short-lived.

With a happy heart, I wandered through the flower garden while the kids chased a squirrel with reckless abandon, their laughter filling the air. I live for days like these. Days when you can put all your cares aside and simply enjoy that which is around you.

 Nature. Summer. Life. 

Weekly Photo Callenge: Flowers

While my parents were visiting, we did some exploring and came across a lot of pretty flowers. One of my favorite patches was up by the visitors center. There was a colorful display of flowers with bees buzzing happily all around them.

This next picture is not nearly as colorful, but Nathan is in love with sea turtles, so I wanted to include this one for him.
