A warm welcome to Summertime!
It is almost as if on cue, Summer has officially arrived… not only in the sense of the annual calender occurrence, but in weather as well—finally! Today, I am working in the studio with the windows uncovered and the door wide open, every once in awhile peeking outside to enjoy…
And yesterday, I happened to spot a few delicate monarch butterflies fluttering around the large mock orange tree in the back, and tried to snap a few pictures. They were too quick, and fled before I could make it with the phone, but I will try again—their bright yellow wings paired against the tree was truly a lovely site. And it was the very act of seeing them flurry around the blossoms, and myself, running out barefoot, that made me stop for a moment and realize that Summer is officially here—all of the little details added up; the lovely things that come along with the season, and make up "Summer" in our lives and minds… carefree birds, insects and animals… full and draping trees, and lush flowers blossoming, the warm, sunny days—it all came to light. And so, with warmth, we welcome Summer—here to stay and enjoy for an entire season!
