Summer Time and the Living is Easy, Good & Lazy

Hay Rolls by Meeta K. Wolff

That’s the way we roll in the summer. Enjoying long lazy days, taking in all that nature offers and spending a lot of time outdoors. It’s been a good summer and I’ve just returned from a most exhilarating, stunning and relaxing vacation. A road trip that took us to 3 destinations through 5 countries and I am dying to tell you about it. And I will as soon as I have decompressed and shifted through the hundreds of photos.

While I do that I am sharing the spirit of my summer here in Weimar with you and give you an idea why I love this little city so much. Each season holds some wonderful visual treasure and I have been taking my camera out with me almost daily to capture some of these lovely sights that I encounter everyday.

Kick off your shoes, pour yourself your favorite drink, get comfy and enjoy summer through my camera.

Summer is vivid colors of a quaint house smiling from behind a curtain of lush green trees

Summer is a lasciviously pouting flower dressed in hot pink waiting to be admired

Summer is when even weeds wink in striking uniqueness reminding you that beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Summer is rolls of hay for rolling in the hay, giving the landscape a distinctive symmetry

Summer is for sidewalk daisies blooming in every nook and cranny and smiling at passer-bys with their naive purity

Summer wears nature’s best colors: wheat yellow, sky blue, forest green all dotted with speckles of poppy red or cirsium violet

Summer also means waiting in line for your favorite street food … what that is shall be revealed later this week

  5. With such a busy life I'm so glad you got to relax with your family. I too have hundreds of photos of the rolling countryside but in UK and Switzerland. A peek here http://trekforlebanon.wordpress.com/2012/08/15/walk-bibury-countryside/ The green keeps me going for the rest of the year as a resident of a desert land.

  6. Meeta:

    The picture of the frites window brought back great memories.

    You wouldn't have a recipe for Pomme Frites Salz, would you?

    Have a Joyful Day :~D

  8. I love the photo of all the bales of hay in the golden field! That is an image that makes me feel warm and light and summery. JP and I did spend a few days in beautiful Normandy but your pictures make me want to run away again. Can't wait to hear the details of your exciting trip!

  9. Meeta! What gorgeous photos! You have done your city a great honor capturing its beauty and sharing it here! Over here it is no longer summer (our summer is from March-May), but summer here to me is always the beach, sandy shores, palm trees, blue sky and sea, blazing sun, ice cold beer, and the best mangoes in the world! :) Here are some images from last year: http://80breakfasts.blogspot.com/2011/05/back-from-neverland.html :)
