Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
This photo is the first of my roses to bloom this year. It stood brightly in the morning sun for all to see. With summer around the corner, there will be lots more like this to adorn my yard.
We have one more week of school here in our area and I can't wait to have some lazy days hanging out at the pool with family, friends and a good book by my side . The pool opened last weekend and it gave me a glimps of what is yet to come. I wait for the easy schedule of summer each year and love it. How fortunate I am to have this time to spend with my kids enjoying the outdoors and once again forming a bond which will stay with them year after year.
