The First Day of Summer

The first day of summer ought to look like this:


Families parked under pink beach umbrellas




 A daughter enjoying the water at the shoreline



Grandchildren having a friendly tussle because there is no television,
smart phone or gaming device within three miles.


But unfortunately that lovely day was in April.

Today the skies were 
grey and the storm clouds drizzled on and off all day.  Even the sunset was at a disappointing 8:29 PM and it was completely dark by 8:45 on this, the longest day of the year.  No lingering twilight after sunset like they enjoy in the northern states.

Even though it wasn't a picture perfect day...those drippy rains today, this first day of summer, greened up our "lawn" and watered thirsty plants.  

May I wish you a very happy summer!  

I want to thank Beverly for
featuring me this week
Come and take a look!

Congrats for your feature over at How Sweet the Sound, for her Pink Saturday link party. I did enjoy the flamingo that post and photos.

It may have rained and been gloomy, but your grass and flowers got a good soaking, that's a plus.

Have a fabulous weekend.
