Shades of Blue: Part 6 Summer Skies and Garden Flowers

Football is on the television, fresh rain is clearing the last of the forest fire smoke and I’m reaching for a fleece vest while looking back through my pictures for another summer gallery.

Today’s choices are all about summer skies, summer flowers, summer nights and summer salads. Β Plenty of flowers and time by the water with fresh salads and cool drinks make my happy place complete. Β πŸ™‚ Β What are your favorite ingredients for a happy summer place?

  1. Avocado! We love that here in Australia. Can never seem to get enough of that green stuff. Goes well by itself or with other foods. That cool drink looks so inviting. Making me wish summer would hurry up and come here 😊

    1. Avocado is a favorite of ours too, Mabel. πŸ™‚ I hope your summer arrives soon! We are having our first evening of rain in 2 months and it sounds so nice…

  2. That avacado photo is pretty cool – such a clean slice !
    And read the above comments so agree with the book – and possibly a notebook to doodle or write – πŸ˜‰
    Love the blues

    1. We live by the water, Nicola but sadly not on the islands. They’re my favorite place to vacation but a walk along our beaches here are a fine substitute. πŸ™‚

  3. Lovely way to start my day, Lisa. My ingredients? Plenty of travel, our place in Wyoming (photos today again on the blog), always books (but that’s not seasonal), walks in the park, flowers. I think that’s enough to be going on with. Happy Monday!


  4. We’ve only had two days of rain and your photos already make me nostalgic for summer! It’s still officially summer, but it seems like the middle of winter. In summer, I just need a cold drink and a shady spot where I can lounge and admire the view of gardens or water!

    1. I know I wanted rain yesterday, D’Arcy but now I miss our warm summer nights! I think it was all the smoke that finally pushed me to think longingly of rain and wind. Fresh air is good. πŸ™‚ And so is a shady spot with a cold drink and a pretty view. πŸ™‚
