  1. Wow, this is turning into a great series of challenges. The photos you chose to represent summer are wonderful, filled with warmth and light, as you would expect summer would be. The birds are really enjoying themselves it seems. These photos really express summer perfectly.

  15. Watermelon is always so refreshing when chilled and is a staple for me at this time of the year when I chop up a huge slice and include it in a salad with feta cheese, dried cranberries, various seeds, salad leaves and anything else that comes to hand!
    Beautiful photographs to represent Summer.
    Always a joy.
