100 words: Summer

It’s hot, it’s very hot but I don’t mind it; I love summer and I enjoy wearing light dresses and flip-flops.

I’m sitting on the terrace with a book in my hands but I'm not reading it. I’m watching the green garden and the colourful flowers bathing in the sun. A red and orange butterfly is flying over the flowers until it finds the most beautiful one and lands on it for a minute.

I love the smell of summer, the sweet smell carried around by the soft breeze.

I love everything about summer and summer nights are my favourite.

  1. I also love summer but it can get too hot! Never the less we live in a thick stone building and it never gets too hot inside the house. I agree summer nights are wonderful, I do all my gardening in the evening. Diane

  3. I felt like I was right there with you. Nice writing. And I so love summer and summer nights.

  4. Love this. I was actually thinking about doing a similar 100 word post tonight about summer night storms.

    Maybe. :)

  5. Summer nights are great if you have air condioning and can sleep if you are hot and sticky and just can not sleep because of the heat then it is not so goom.............

  6. I'm glad that you can now enjoy the summer days and nights for a while without having to revise. I shall try to ensure that the rain which is falling over here doesn't find its way over there for a while. :-)

  7. I love summer. Sometimes it can get a little too hot but summer is my favorite time of year. Everything seems so alive in summer!
