On July – Why I love my favorite month
I just wanted to take a moment to pay homage to July.
I love July… My normally freezing feet love July. I love the hot sun, the thunder storms, the occasional teeming rain.
I love being able to grab a handful of raspberries and pop ‘em in my mouth while gardening.
I love sitting back and enjoying the flowers I’ve planted.
I love the discount the nurseries offer because planting season is dwindling, even though there’s probably eight weeks left until we’ll see frost.
I love the fireflies that look as though paparazzi have invaded the neighborhood.
I love seeing the hummingbird moths (snowberry clearwing) that love my garden… coolest. bug. ever.
I love that the kids stay up late and there’s no homework, book reports or projects due.
I love fireworks and celebrating our independence.
I love all the street festivals, garden walks and farmers’ markets.
I love having morning coffee while “walking the yard” with hubs.
I love finding deer seeking shade under a tree in the yard.
I love cutting the grass a little less, and letting it grow a little longer.
I love having a cold beverage on the front porch.
I love that I won’t have to think about kids’ physicals, school forms or back-to-school until next month.
Back to school…eesh…just spoiled the mood.
Kindly share below if you’re so inclined. 🙂
