Summer is Coming

  1. Mersad has challenged us to show that Summer is Approaching so I've got some outdoor scenes today, starting with these bright lilies in pink and orange

2. We've had nice weather other than more rain than usual. Already I've started to take the great outdoors for granted! Ah, but this weather won't last so let's take another walk!

3. The next scene is from Freezeland Road near Howellsville, VA.

Skywatch Friday
4. Kids know how to enjoy warm weather! This basketball court is in Strasburg's Town Park.

5. And finally, here's what happens when it's too wet to cut the grass: it grows! This empty house is next to a bridge construction zone; I don't know if it's going to be torn down or not. I did see a man trying to cut the grass but he gave up. I heard that his machine couldn't cut it.


  1. Hi Linda, enjoyed the photos very much. Looks like you have been enjoying this lovely weather. Have a great weekend :)

  2. What amazing shots, talking about this lovely season, Darling Linda, thank you for sharing !

    Sending blessings on your weekend,
    with my dearest love

    XOXO Dany

  3. What a lovely green forest, inviting to stroll around...
    I often think about abandoned houses, all their stories, wqhat coult bee there and what will be with the building in future -

  4. ...it looks like it's here!

  5. Hello, beautiful summer images. I love the flowers.
    Happy Saturday! Wishing you a happy weekend!

  6. Beautiful images- and quite dramatic skies too!

  7. Pretty summer photos. That tall grass can get out of hand in a very short amount of time during this season.

  8. Lovely series of photographs, lovely to see all the colour in your first one.

    All the best Jan
