Trio of Summer Delights
Here are 3 things I love about summer.
1. Visiting Neighbors.
We have a front courtyard patio beneath the shade of a giant live oak tree. We like to sit there in the gloaming—that's a great word my grandfather would use about the time right after sunset and before night falls.
Neighbors drop by and stay a while. We offer hospitality in a glass of wine or a tall iced tea. It's low-key, casual, and friendly—three things many people don't get enough of in today's rat race.
2. Summer rain.
Like the old song about summer rain tapping on my window, there's something intoxicating about lying in bed while a gentle rain lulls you and waters your yard. Rainwater always seems more nourishing to plants than the water from the sprinkers.
3. Flip flops, sundresses, and cork sandals.
I do love to wear breezy sundresses. They seem cooler in hot weather than shorts and tee shirts. I choose flip flops if I'm just hanging loose or cork sandals if I want to look a bit "dressier" and taller. Since I'm on the petite side, anything that adds a couple of inches to my heart—comfortably—have a home in my closeet.
