I've never liked summer very much because it's so dang HOT, (I'm more of a spring/fall person), but after I listed out what summer means to me, I've realized that I actually do enjoy it...quite a bit, humidity and all.








See what summer means to these lovely ladies...

Summer is my season. I enjoy the heck out of it no matter the humidity. I'm going to have to remember to do a similar list of what I like about winter. Generally, it's not much. Thanks for sharing your summer fun.

A great description of all things summer. :) Those clouds are amazing! A great capture! We don't get clouds that big and puffy often.

The colors are so pretty and vibrant in your first two photos - gorgeous. It has been too hot this summer in MN, hasn't it? I'm with you - I'm more of a fall time girl, too. :)
