Reflections of Summer

Summer Trees - Mocha

Long days filled with sunshine, warm balmy evenings, bright flowers, the sea, time to dream …  While each season brings its own pleasures, I love summer.

So before it gives way to the crisp, frosty mornings , falling leaves and cosy throws, let’s celebrate the beauty of this season with some images and summer quotes.

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
