The Sunday Stills challenge this week is to share photos that represent what we most love about summer. I'm not a huge fan of summer; they are very hot here in the desert mountains of Southern California. The early mornings and the evenings are nice, but the rest of the day is useless unless you are a teenage sun worshiper (which I was in my younger days). The beach, in summer, is comfortable and I have many memories of turning on my towel, to get an even tan, listening to the radio, and body surfing the waves. Now, I slather on sunscreen and stick to the shade.
I do love summer fruits and vegetables. There is nothing like a tomato ripened in the sunshine of the garden, plums and peaches from the trees and berries. Basil and dill, tarragon, oregano and rhubarb. Summer is a food fest to me.
