Toltec Jewels has issued this challenge/ blog hop for us to express our interpretation of Summer Elements. It has been a revealing exercise for me and since I've been thinking so much about Canada these days in preparation for my own upcoming Blog Hop I decided to talk about what summer is like here in:
CANADA, THE GREAT WHITE NORTH
"We get summer here too, and it is so beautiful!"
For me ,summer officially begins with blooming of the Sakura cherry blossoms in High Park across from my apartment in Toronto and continues with the stunning views of the gradual greening of the city and always magnificent rainbows visible from my apartment overlooking the park and Lake Ontario! I can count all the sailboats taking advantage of Toronto's beautiful waterfront,sometimes there's over 100! Of course Nelson loves the sun, the breeze and the view of our pool!
It's especially fun on sunny days with the dome open.We has a great day in June.
As wonderful as summer is in Toronto I am looking forward to cottage country in August. I have the privilege of spending a week every summer at a little piece of heaven in the Rideau Lakes region of Ontario. Two of my oldest friends, Sandie and Pat, have included my BFF, Tish , and me in their celebration of summer at their rustic family cottage and we always have a fabulous time. Summer is not complete until we make the road trip to Sand Lake!
Beautiful lights , sounds and views are the summer elements evocative of this sublime experience! I don't have a lot of my own pictures of cottage time because I'm usually too blissed out to bother taking pictures. I've Googled several images all of which represent summer at the lake for me.I hope you enjoy my summer elements and learn a bit about Summer in Canada!
|Loons! Beautiful with a haunting song that echoes over the lake and instantly relaxes me!|
|Mojitos on the deck! They also help with relaxation!|
|Not our deck but the view is identical!|
|The Canadian Shield|
Thank you Rita for this wonderful start to Summer 2013!
