Summer is the time to stay outdoors until the sun goes down or until 9:30 p.m. or whichever comes first. This makes for very long days and short nights. Since I love being outdoors -gardening, looking at the flowers, watching the wildlife and the insects and drinking the evening scents wafting on the breeze – this is fine with me. I am not good at photography, but I try to capture the essence of what makes up my world. These are some of the summer projects at my house.
