The summer night is like a perfection of thought.  Wallace Stevens
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful
than the risk it took to blossom.
Anais Nin
In summer, the song sings itself.  William Carlos Williams
Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.  Russel Baker

What a beautiful marina Sylvia and gorgeous view from high up there! The blue Hydrangeas are gorgeous, I don't have much luck with them at all, I think it just gets too hot here~

NixBlog said...

Beautiful shots, Sylvia. The hydrangeas are magnificent, but the last shot is my favourite.
Enjoy your week!

Oh yes -- I can do with some of that now my trees are still naked and grey - even though I like that too.
Thank your for allowing the meme to run. My contribution is here

Yep, I'm looking forward to warmer weather too... but summer is sometimes a tad too hot. It's probably nicer in Seattle. :)

I love the blue flowers that look like a summersky. But, of course, I forgot the name.

Love the top view of the harbor! Love hydrangea - once I had a blue one, but I'm not good in keeping them!

Beautiful scenes like these make it obvious why you want summer to return. Your summer sunset photo is fantastic.

I have just read Stephen Ambrose's Undaunted Courage about Lewis and Clark and their first look of the vast West. You bring it to life with your images.

Blue flowers, always my fav.!

Rajesh said...

Beautiful scenic places and gorgeous golden sky.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Summer time and the living will be... well if not easy, at least beautiful.

The macro of the hydrangea is absolutely perfect!!! I'll be back in the Pacific Northwest by summer (if all goes well) -- so I won't have to be jealous (as I was of your Spring shots!)

Team G Square said...

Wonderful pictures .....

Andrea said...

Those are so meaningful photos, and i love most the last one. The first i always see in my window. But even if we have whole year summer in this country, haha, it is still lovely to see in photos, as if we are not living it the whole time!

Ebie said...

I love the blue hydrangea! I am still looking forward to more rain for my quest of wildflowers.

Ah, your sunset is really awesome!

Kay said...

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
