Summer, I can smell it coming

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time. ~John Lubbock

Summer is coming
I can smell it in the charcoal

in the fresh tilled soil

and in the wood smoke

I am getting my to-do list done
early this year
(sand and seal outbuildings)

So that we can enjoy this summer.
I can smell it coming

Good for you!!! Summer will be more relaxed when it is done.
Love the feet relaxing in front of the fire. Was he the pic taker also? The playhouse looks fabulous. You do have the picnic table left to do right....otherwise
you need a different finish for it. Can't wait to have our first picnic and fire with you guys. Hope to see you soon.
