...And Without Further Ado, Summer.

It was rather abrupt in the end.
Overnight, in fact.
One morning Summer had just turned up at the door, bags deposited, feet up, fanning herself where she reclined in her deck chair, before we had even risen.

Can you imagine the welcome?
And what has made it all the sweeter is that with her came my only sister, her husband, and their darling little daughter, all the way from the US.
So there has been a significant gatherings of Family, of coming together from the all quarters, to eat, drink and be merry, and just catch up with one another.

And so, while blogging is still sporadic, at best, round here, we have been busy, and there are significant changes afoot here at Milkmoon, of which I hope to have more on in the near future.

So for now, I do hope that the sun is shining wherever you are, and I will be back here soon with some drawings, musings, and news.

I know! It's wonderful! Summer's here!

Lovely that she arrived in time for your only sister's visit.

Enjoy your family and the summer. Ours is making some tentative steps in our direction.

My non-robotic word is 'fecundation'. Surely that's a summer word.

How wonderful your sister and her family are visiting, Ciara. That makes life extra special. Loved your photos. Susan

That looks like a great swing. Reminds me of one I had, as a boy.

Sounds interesting....hmmm wonder wonder?
Yes I now just what you mean, one moment we are dripping wet with all the rain, then we are dripping wet with all the heat.

Hope you have a wonderful time with your visitors, enjoy!

I'm not a fan of summer, but the swinging looks awesome. Can't wait for your news.

Beautiful! I had thought that summer had arrived here too, but it seems she's retreated again, and let her little sister spring take over again for a little while. I hope that you have a wonderful visit with your sister and her family.
