summer colours

Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied by definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways. ~Oscar Wilde

Every year it surprises me when school supplies pop up in shops and the realization of how quickly Summer can fly by hits. Thankfully there are still many more evenings left of lingering sunlight, lemonade to be sipped, seeing friends/loved ones, and ocean visits. Happy Mid-Summer to each of you.
