Summer Lovin’ – The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

After my last post, where I declared the ten things I hate most about Summer, this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is Summer Lovin’ so this is where I can now make it up to the delightful season, that is ‘Summer’.

  1. Ha ha ha really loving the video clip from Grease – I have to say that was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw the challenge! 🙂

    1. Hi Maria, these were taken just before we got hit with heat and humidity, but thankfully now, that has all given way to some sunshine and a cool breeze. Toby and me are so delighted that the proper British summer seems to have come back to our shores.

      1. We had a cold snap a while back and even had frost several mornings – imagine that! Our winters are not as cold as they used to be when I was a kid. Having lovely sunny days lately. 🙂 Today is a balmy 22C and this is mid-winter!

      2. Wow, that’s as warm as it has been here in parts of the UK, Maria. Mind you, I’d never complain about the cooler weather. Cold frosty mornings with a clear blue sky are just so beautiful. I really enjoy them a lot.

      3. Well you would just love a Queensland winter then. Little rain, cool nights and sunny days – can’t complain at all. It can get windy in August though. I don’t like wind.

        May, June and July are great cooler months here. 😄

    1. I’m loving the new photo Pavanneh. I’ve not been able to stop playing the Grease CD since I got it out for the photo challenge. I love the scene in the movie when they do ‘Beauty School Dropout’. Do you have a favourite scene or song from the movie?

  3. I love your summery photos. So bright and colourful, certainly gives a positive feel about the season. It’s winter in Melbourne, Australia, and I would trade it for summer weather right now! 😀 You can always stay cool in the summer by staying indoors or eating ice-cream if you don’t like it that much 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Mabel. I do tend to stay indoors when its too hot over here, but only when we have the humidity as well. I don’t know why they still don’t build houses with air conditioning over here in the UK. That would solve the issue good and proper. I’m not saying that I absolutely hate summer (who may have read my post ’10 things I most hate about…summer!), just more to do when it gets too hot and humid. I guess until air con does become a standard feature in our housing over here, I’ll have to say in and eat lots of Ice Cream during the summer, just like you suggested.

      1. That isn’t great to hear at all, that houses in the UK don’t come with air-conditioning. Apartments, if they didn’t come with air-conditioning that would still be understandable. But houses? That’s sad. Maybe try having a fan on in your house during the summer, that might help too.

      2. Yep, its all true. I think because the summer temperature has never got over 37 degrees celsius, house builders think there is no need for air con in any houses or apartments in the UK. I’d happily have paid to have had it installed, but it never seems to be an option on new builds. The trouble with fans is that they just blow all the hot air around the room, so I’ll stick to what you said before and eat lots of ice cream 🙂
