Longing for Summer

Waiting eagerly for summer to come. The image above is what our backyard looked like last summer. Lush, inviting, green and so summery. This is what country living is like. No traffic noise, no neighbours looking down at us, no shopping carts in the alley (no alleys, at all, actually). In the summer, we spend almost all of our meals outside and sit there for hours until the sun goes down. Our backyard has been neglected since summer ended last year. Soon, if the weather holds up, we’ll be out there again watching our herbs, vegetables and fruits grow and just enjoying the hot summer days…
