SUMMER SUN SOMETHING'S BEGUN BUT UH-OH THOSE SUMMER NIGHTS

Summer was so long when I was a kid. I'm pretty sure they've shortened it. And they've definitely made it colder.

THEY'VE got a lot to answer for.

Althooouuugh, they may have shortened the LENGTH of it, but the days! Wow, are THEY long! And this! Sunshine makes me so happy, especially after a couple of weeks of unseasonably cold and grey weather. This was the sky a few minutes ago, at 8:30 p.m. in the evening.

Then I walked around and took some more photos of things green and growing and things lilac and lovely.

It's hard to think about bedtime when it's that sunny out. We put the kids to bed at the customary time, pulling their black shades down to block the brightness. After I went out to snap the sky, I snuck in to see if they were sleeping.

Because I am chronically early and a big dork and wished them yesterday: HAPPY BIRTHDAY ON YOUR ACTUAL BIRTHDAY, BIRTHDAY WISHES to gentle_dream! (she's so nice, I wished them twice!)
