Summer!

 
Just in time for the summer solstice, I think we've finally made it to real summer here in Michigan. It's been a gorgeous week with temps in the 70s, low humidity and gentle breezes. It's supposed to rain some this weekend, and that would be good. The rain is a critical part of the green-ness.

This is Idlewild Lake in the morning light.

My back roads are looking more like tunnels- so cool and inviting.

And of course, the first cutting of hay is ripening in rows, waiting for the balers.

I'm off for a night of work at the paper. I would love summer if it were always like this week!

Someone[s] put in a lot of work to make that beautiful lake so approachable. Very refreshing.

There is something about hay waiting to be baled, the smell (wonderful) and us wanting to dive into it. :)

The lake, with its lovely reflections, is, indeed, so spectacular. Sounds like ideal summer days right now.

India is in the throes of monsoon and terrible disasters and death to the north.
