Lushness of verdant valleys
Sizzling summer dreams

    Awesome imagery, but I’ve just about had enough of sizzlin’ summer! Here in PA, we’ve been melting under the heat and humidity. I’m ready for my favorite season…autumn. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh, if only our summer were sizzling and verdant! We’ve just got the sizzle – although we just had a few minutes’ shower and I swear I can hear the grass rejoicing!

      Our summer is sizzling in temperatures — although we were thrilled for last night’s reprieve with a rain storm and drop in temperatures. 😀 Our grass jumped up and “danced”!
