Summer is....

a time...
to spend outdoors as much as possible.
Get that bike out, go on a long ride through the countryside...
through fields with the heavy scent of very ripe strawberries wafting through the air..
Or walk amongst the green and look out for wild flowers and poppies..
or watch a family of ducks swimming across the ponds.
Or better still, grab that swimsuit and splish splash in the pool or the Main..:-)

a time...
to GRILL...
gorge on german wurst, salad and brötchen..
at the same time have a good time with loved ones.

a time.....
to sow and reap, enjoy the fruit of labor coupled with warmth and sunshine....
be it on a small patch of land, a teeny tiny balcony or sprawling fields.

a time...
for festivals...
both big and small, beer or wine...
you have it all.
Get out the barrels, beat the drums, blow the trumpets, get the ball rolling..
you can down it all..:-)

a time...
to enjoy the german towns and villages in all their color and splendor..
With the geraniums spilling out of every window, and the summer weather changing moods ..
With bier gartens and Eis parlors open....

GOSH, this is my favorite season of all!!!
