Sunshine, Saved Up Earlier, For Gerry Today
Gerry, I confess that I saved these sunny shots for all of us, starting last Thursday when the weather predictions for the weekend looked dark and foreboding. If we'd had thunderstorms on Saturday instead of bright, blue skies, we would have needed cheering up in a big way, but the weekend was lovely. Now, you're right, summer's official start is rather moody. On our side of Grand Traverse Bay, the air is eerily still, and the marine forecast is talking again of thunderstorms. So here are a few reminders of how beautiful summer can and will be, once the rains pass and the sunshine returns. But rain is summer, too, no?
Isn't it good that the hay was gotten in ahead of the rain? And please take note of those wisteria blossoms! I've waited six years, at least, for that reluctant debutante vine to bloom!
