Last summer my friend became despondent.
Day after day of heat and no rain took its toll on her.
She wanted to fold up her gardens and put them away until Autumn. I understood.
Yet there were some aspects of summer I loved.
Once I began thinking about all my loves of summer
I realized I easily could name 95 loves, one for each day of the summer season. I made a list. I bought a journal.
Today, on Summer Solstice, I shall begin sharing with you
the 95 different aspects I love about Summer.
I love sunflowers.
To celebrate Summer 2012,
I have planted a sunflower garden.
I am growing lots of different sunflowers.
I decorate with sunflowers in August but this year
I am decorating with sunflowers all summer!
I hope to have sunflowers for my vases
and to dry for winter use.
Happy Summer Solstice.
Happy falling in love with Summer.
