Summer Fun!

Larry has several guitar students. Most of them have longer fingers than this one. This one has nice long nails, though. :>} We spent the weekend doing lots of summery things. We got the pool ready. First we had to fish out the slimy leaves and pump the yucky water that accumulated in the cover over the winter.
A good time for reflection.

I don't know if I've ever seen such a perfect water lily. We heard lots of frogs and saw some splashing, but they kept out of sight. Water lilies make great cover for them.

A miniature summerhouse at Larry's parents' house.

A closer look. I do love miniatures.

Even though summer doesn't officially start for a few weeks, around here Memorial Day is considered the unofficial start of summer. My favorite time of year!

What a relaxing and wonderful way to prepare for all the fun to come in the Sunny Summertime....We had a pool when the kids were at home in NJ..and how I miss it here in NC.
Where a quick dip would do it :o)..\Ginny

Good to see your pool again. I cant believe how time flies, I remember you showing us last summer.

I love your cat and I bet the cat loves guitar strings I know ours would.

The water lily is beautiful, Diana! I'm glad to hear you are getting the pool ready. I know how much you enjoy getting to go for a swim there. I love summer too. Although spring is my favorite time, summer is a very close second.
