Summer Solstice

I don’t know about anybody else, but Summers are a BIG deal for me here.

I behave like a squirrel during these three months of Summer, hurrying to do my bit, appearing very busy and stopping for nothing and nobody.

IMG_9093 IMG_9271 But I take my time to  capture in my camera Nature’s dance of happiness. I keep gazing at the blue sky through my sunglasses, get more tan than needed on my Indian skin, sit by the window and soak enough sun so that I don’t have to pop Vitamin D pills for the rest of the year.

There is lots to love about the summer landscape. Apart from obviously family visiting and bringing me gifts and goodies from India.

I am cherishing my golden days of Summer in Toronto and looking forward to getting my next crop of tangerines

Happy Canada Day, everyone!

What wonderful photos Pree. You have captured summer and its full glory wonderfully. Such a contrast from back home where we cringe from the heat and dusk run into air conditioned comfort

You have the Burmese-Mulla/ Burmese Jasmine creeper near your home! Itevokes so much of summer....spilling over old walls and trees and the shades of pink scattered all around.

Beautiful snaps Pree! When my kaku was in Manitoba I remember the huge fuss about summer they would make. :-)
