The weekly photo challenge is on the topic of Summer (as stated below). I live in Australia and the Summer Season has well and truly ended with the sharp reality of some cold windy autumn nights. In fact we are on the cusp of Winter. This last week is has been raining .. and raining .. and raining. Plus the wind has been a bit wild at times. Some places have had more rain than they need. Kinda weird, when not that long ago we were struggling with drought in many areas.
Summer. Where you live, summer might be arriving soon, or (if you’re in the southern hemisphere), a fleeting memory. But what signifies summer to you? For me, it’s this picture, taken a few weeks ago in Rome, of me wearing shorts and shoes with no socks on the cobbled streets of Rome. When I’m able to dress like this for more than a week, I know that summer’s really here. Check out Sara’s Rome picture here (dailypost at wordpress).
Summer for me is about colourful flowers in the garden and sharing evening meals outside in the warm evening sun with a couple of candles for atmosphere, and no need for a ‘fat’ coat. (ie. very large, warm, well padded winter coat). Even when raining the day seems softer.
Whereas, winter is warm wood fires and the lights on low!!
