summer bliss

The sun is warm on your face. Breathe and you're met with the scents of soil, herbs, roses. Bees buzz around the lavender. A hummingbird zooms past vying with butterflies for sips from the nasturtiums. A soft breeze ruffles the maple leaves overhead and creates a kaleidoscope of orange-glinted ripples in the pond. Grass tickles your bare feet. You bite into a cherry tomato and savor its warm, delicious tang. Nothing is a sweet as a summer afternoon in the garden.
