The days are getting longer in Australia, and it's decidedly warmer, we even went swimming on the weekend! There's no denying it, summer is on its way.
In preparation for the big event, I thought I'd compose an ode to summer.
1. THE BEACH
The powdery warm sand, the crisp foaming waves washing over your painted toes; it's a sensory excursion that makes summer better.
2. SUMMER DRESSES
Soft fabric billowing around your thighs as the warm breeze caresses your legs.
Sun dresses are one of the best summer outfits.
3. PAVEMENTS HOT ENOUGH TO FRY EGGS
It's not summer unless your car bonnet is hot enough to host a barbecue,
4. ICE CREAM
Ok, so you can eat ice cream year round, but summer makes it's icy goodness so much better.
5. FRESH GARDEN PRODUCE
Generally speaking, I have a black thumb, but this spring I've managed to keep the tomatoes, lettuce, parsley and strawberries alive. Delicious summer produce is one of the best parts of summer.
6. SUMMER FRUITS
Bring on the mangoes, cherries, apricots, peaches, grapes and nectarines. YAY!
7. SUMMER ROMANCE
If you're unattached then summer is the time to meet someone special.
However if you're in a relationship or in the family way,
then summer is the time to break out a good book and thing of what could have been...
