Word of the Week – Summery



It seems mad that only 6 weeks ago my word of the week was Spring as we began to see the very first hints of green shoots emerging and now we are on the verge of summer already.  Our temperatures are in the mid 20’s  and the sun is shining, at long last!

I love this time of year, the temperature is hot but not yet stifling and the plants and flowers are growing incredibly quickly.  My back garden is teeming with chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits, birds and the deer even popped by yesterday.


The heating has  been turned off and the air conditioning is on, the kids have less than four weeks left of the school year and the jeans and sweaters have been replaced with capri pants and t-shirts.

Summery conditions have arrived in Toronto this week and we all heave a sigh of relief 😀

    Hooray! It doesn’t seem long ago that you were covered in snow and lamenting about that, and now summer has arrived! We had sun, briefly, so I do hope it’ll be back again here at some point! Thanks for sharing with #WotW

    Those deer are so beautiful! Amazing how quickly the seasons have turned around… Things here are still decidedly changeable – but that’s Devon for you! 🙂
