Inspiration Avenue Weekly Challenge

Summer afternoon ~ summer afternoon; 
to me those have always been the 
two most beautiful words in the English language.
~ Henry James


The challenge theme this week is
Summer Sun
(with apologies to our friends in the Southern hemisphere 
who are experiencing the shortest days of the year 
as we celebrate the Summer Solstice on June 21 ~ 
feel free to use Winter Solstice as your topic, 
or revisit some wonderful summer memories!)


Summer Sun needs little explanation, 
and our experiences are all unique. 
What does the warmth of the summer sun mean to you . . .




. . . and how would you express it within your chosen medium?




“A perfect summer day is when 
the sun is shining, 
the breeze is blowing, 
the birds are singing, 
and the lawn mower is broken.
”
~ James Dent


Guidelines are in the sidebar, if you have not participated before.
The "rules" are very minimal, mostly you just need to get creative!
Have fun with the summer sun!
