Why do I like the Summer Season so much? Well, do not get me wrong, I do like every season of the year. However, the Summer does have some things that make me a very happy person.
I Love to See the Sea in the Summer Season
In the Summer Season, my little family goes to the sea and relax on the beach. Simply because it is way too cold in the other months. Sometimes when the Spring is good to us, we can already enjoy the sea but for me the actual swimming usually starts in the Summer. I live near large lakes which I like as well, a lot.
The lake, I used to live by, the Wörthersee, is full of incredible blue and clear water. Funny thing that in Austria they call it ‘See’ so hence my expression: I Love to See the Sea in the Summer Season.
Flowering in Summer
I admire flowers. The beauty about the Summer Season is that you can find them everywhere. From a nice walk through the neighbourhoods or picking them yourselves in the field. I enjoy. It makes everything look so colorful and beauty makes me happy.
And last but certainly not least: food and drinks
The barbecue creates good inspiration for many lovely dishes. Both meat and vegetables go very well on the grill. With the nice smell coming from the grill I enjoy to sit on terrace or garden, drink a glass of wine and let my boyfriend flip over the ribs and sausages.
What we prepare for next seasons
The Summer brings many fresh fruits in bigger quantities. In the Spring it already starts with the strawberries. The rhubarb, apricots, cherries, all the berries and plums are following. You can enjoy them already now by making delicious ice cream, popsicles and sorbets. The more, the better. It makes impressive dessert, and moreover, it is amazingly refreshing.
All the fruits and vegetables are more than perfect. Let’s make some scrumptious preserves: conserve and pickle what markets offer to us. Oh my, there are so many combinations and techniques to play with: marmalades, jams, chutneys, confits, drinks and pickles of any kind.
The best thing is that if you make enough of them, and you can withstand the temptation to eat them straight away, you can enjoy them later on, even in the Winter Season.
In conclusion, I think that you understand now why I do enjoy this season for its special things. Feel free to shoot me what The Summer means for you, all your suggestions and inspirations for this beautiful season.
Pick, eat and love,
