Summer Solstice

It's the first day of Summer!!

Summer afternoon,
Summer afternoon...
the two most beautiful words
in the English language.

~ Henry James


  1. And it's about time! Happy Summer, Lesley!

  2. Hope you guys have better weather - we've had a rainy, cool spring (and first day of summer)!

  3. That looks like so much fun, Les! Enjoy all those happy summer outings and your summer reading!

  4. Literary Feline - Yes, it is! And now it's HOT, HOT, HOT! :)

    Stephanie - We've had lots of rainy, cool days, but this week is going to be really hot. It's currently 93 but more like 106 with the heat index! Yesterday was almost as hot.

    Robin - It was a great day! I need to start planning our next visit out to see that little girl. She's growing up so fast.

  5. Summer! Is there a more wonderful word?!


  6. Debbie - None that I can think of! Well, maybe Saturday. :)

    Oh, I think you quite captured summer with that photograph and poem. I'd love to be in that water!!!

  8. The water was heavenly, Bellezza. I'm so used to the cold Pacific, which rarely gets as warm as the Atlantic before September. Of course, I eventually started worrying about sharks... ;)
