Memories of Summer Blooms

I know I’ve mentioned this before but I’m going to say it again – summer is my favourite season.  Its warm, sunshiny days, not having to wear six layers of clothing.  Swimming, sailing and surfing, soaking up the vitamin D – what’s not to love.  Evening barbeques and fresh salads on the patio.  Long, cool summer drinks with loads of fruit and ice – again…what’s not to love.

With autumn just arriving I thought I’d post some of my favourite flower photos from summer 2012.

Gardenias and Hydrangeas at the Bio Marche on Boulevard des Batignolles

English Roses – in London and Paris

The Colour of Summer

and finally, roadside blooms in Auvergne …
