We had a big group over for dinner tonight, and we made fresh lemonade from our tree.

You're right! That is definitely the taste of summer.

My husband makes THE BEST lemonade...and the best lemons I ever tasted didn't come from CA or FL, they come from AZ....and my friend shipped us boxes of them for 5 entire months. Of course, their growing season is over now...so I have to wait until December for more of those. Darn!!!

Such pretty pictures, Marcia!!!!

Hi Marcia,
Happy summer day to you too!
We have been having a heat wave in Modesto CA.
I love Ikea too, the closest on to me is 2 hours away so I have only been twice. Did you eat lunch there, they have the best Swedish Meat Balls..
How wonderful for Jordan! He's such a strong and determined young man. It has been miracle.I think Jordan is an amazing man and his little boy looks so proud of his Dad.
Have a sweet day and big hugs, Elizabeth

Happy summer, Marcia! Hope you're keeping comfortable and cool. We're melting here in Florida ~ ha! That lemonade sure looks refreshing:)

michelle said...

Just perfect Marcia, I couldn't agree with you more. :) I hope you summer is flavored with lemonade and each day is brightly colored as your photos. :)

GWENNY said...

I love those pictures! They rep summer so much! It has been many years since I have been on a ferris wheel. But I think I could find a glass of sweet lemonaid.

JBeaudetStudios said...

I love your post! It's so refreshing! Thanks for stopping my my blog:) The PV painting was around Malaga cove. Gorgeous area isn't it? I was lucky enough to grow up in the South Bay too and am now back here, but only temporarily. Have a great summer Marcia! Jennifer:)

Jenni said...

Hi Marcia! This is such a fun post, and I love the pictures, too! And I DID think you were going to say blue! But you are right that it would be a bright color! {yea for summer!}

How are you doing this week? I hope it has been a good one for you, and that you enjoy a fun weekend! :)


Carole said...

I think you are right maybe why I'm having a hard time wanting to repaint my brightly colored foyer. Not that I have to time now,.....so many projects so little time but I do stare at those walls a lot..

Happy Summer!


Bringing Pretty Back said...

Tanya said...

Hey Marcia,
I have been very lax about getting around to leaving comments...I'll do better.
I absolutely loved this post! Yes...I was expecting Blue! HA! But liked the Bright better!
This post made me love summer even more than I already do!

Crystal said...

Beautiful blog!

Lynn said...

Lovely post for the beginning of summer :) It is raining here today (not at all common for us in California) and doesn't feel like summer. But I will think of your lemonade pictures and they will make me feel bright and sunny.

Brandi said...

love your summer pictures, Marcia. especially the first one with the drink dispensers. Hope you and your family are having a great summer.
