Summertime

-
The "experts" say that summer begins tomorrow. They're wrong. Summer begins when fireflies light up the night, the scent of honeysuckle fills the air and, most importantly, the dag-gone mosquitos and deer-flies start biting! That was at least three weeks ago. © 2014

It's when the tourists move in.

Although, at 37 degrees this morning, it's not off to a good start. Supposed to reach low 70s later. We shall see.

Sounds like the same time school let out.

Grace and peace.

Valid observations all, my friends, I guess we notice what most affects us personally.

No lightning bugs here yet. They are late this year... Plenty of skeeters, though!

Isn't that the way of it, Cm?
