Summer days and weather

This picture is the one of the family's crapabble tree, I uploaded it here because it illustrates today's topic. Nothing looks more like starting summer than a tree in full bloom. So anyway, touch wood, it seems that summer is finally here. it is warm, sometimes even hot, always sunny, except in the evening when it rains. The weather is absolutely splendid. Yesterday at work, during one of my short breaks, I was saying this to a colleague, that the weather was splendid and then, being unable to say more on the subject he said: "Well, since we cannot complain anymore about the weather, we better find other topics of conversation." Because it illustrates how rare summer seems to be sometimes, how unlikely it is, I think it deserves to be a great unknown line. We do obsess a lot about it here. But hey, we have a summer. I am an autumnal person, but it is nice to have a summer to appreciate too. There were years when it never showed up.

Crabapple trees in bloom add a touch of beauty to one's property!

@Jaz-Well, it is not always hot, sometimes it feels like early autumn, as the air gets quite cool.
@Nellie-It is beautiful and it smells nice.
@Gwen-It has, although here it is sometimes a shy summer.
