Today is the official first day of summer! (Really, though, I think that with temperatures that have been in the 90s°F, summer has been in full force for a while now!) It was a lovely day in my area — sunny, breezy, temperatures in the 70s°F. I spent the afternoon picking strawberries and doing other outdoor stuff. The already cut hay in the fields surrounding my home got flipped early in the afternoon and then baled in the evening. Here is the view from my bedroom window, morning and then evening:

I’m so glad it is summer! There is green everywhere and it is beautiful.
