The Sweetness of Summer

Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Hawaiian Ice at the county fair.

Bouquets made of sweet-smelling clover.

Lazy afternoons pedaling around in the cozy coupe.

These are truly some examples of the freshness of childhood and the sweetness of summer!


  1. So fun, Those snowcones look delicious. They are definitely a great memory of summer.

  2. Hi Valerie--
    Oh! to be that age again.

    a great time! Was this the Johnson
    County Fair?
