Here, in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge from the folks at The Daily Post at http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/summer-lovin/, are just some of the things that I love about summer. First and foremost, eating ice cream!
Visiting the farmers market. Most towns in the area hold a farmers market during the summer months. The fruit looks very tempting but I nearly always end up buying something from the bakery stall. Mum and I never went anywhere without buying some kind of cake or cookie.
Visiting the Chicago Botanic Garden Kite Festival which this year is being held on August 9th & 10th.
Spending the day at Arlington Park racetrack. A great place to visit, even if you don’t enjoy having a little flutter. I’m not much good at picking out the winners but I love to watch the horses and the people at the track.
Sunflowers! Even the name sounds happy and full of the joys of summer
