“All in all, it was a never-to-be-forgotten summer — one of those summers which come seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going — one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends & delightful doing, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world.”
-L.M. Montgomery, Anne's House of Dreams
“I almost wish we were butterflies and liv'd but three summer days - three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.”
“Summer's lease hath all too short a date.”
“It was June, & the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.”
-Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy-Tacy & Tib
Dream on, sweet summertime!
