We have just a few days until summer "officially" starts on June 20, but it sure feels like it now, doesn't it? Sweltering afternoons, thunderstorms, new flowers blooming every week, and so much green in the landscape. I figured it was about time for another one of my "season appreciation" posts. ;) Here are some favorite quotes that perfectly illustrate this vibrant time of year.
"All in all, it was a never-to-be-forgotten summer -- one of those summers which come seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going -- one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends and delightful doing, come as near to perfection as anything can come in the world." ~L.M. Montgomery
"The summer night is like a perfection of thought." ~Wallace Stevens
"It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside." ~Maud Hart Lovelace
"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time." ~John Lubbock
"And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer." ~F. Scott Fitzgerald
