Long-time followers of this feature may be experiencing a bit of déjà vu right now.
"We've already seen where Candace does her blogging for Beth Fish Reads, haven't we?"
Indeed you have! Candace is very generously allowing us to see the summer edition of her blogging space. (Snow was a feature in her original Scene of the Blog. Brrrr!)
One of the common things you see around various blogs are seasonal questions: does the amount of your reading change with the seasons, does what you read change with the seasons.... Well, blogging can change with the seasons, too-- especially if you have the capability of being a mobile blogger.
Candace is a mobile blogger, and her blog is one of my favorites. If you haven 't visited Beth Fish Reads, pleasepleaseplease take the time to go over for a visit. Don't forget to say hello!
Let's take a look at where Candace blogs during the summer months, shall we? Don't forget that you can click on each photo to view it full size.
In the summer I like to blog on the deck, if the temperature is cool enough. My first choice is the wicker love seat, but at some times during the day it's too sunny there, so...
...I move to the table and take advantage of the umbrella's shade. I took these photos before I had all my annuals potted up. The deck rails are usually the home to summer flowers and some herbs.
I also included a photo of the view out to my wildflower meadow. It's been a hot and dry summer, so I don't have the profusion of blooms I normally do. The plants are happy just to be alive.
Mr. BFR and I spend most summer evenings out here reading, talking, or just relaxing.
The Midwesterner in me loves the green, the tall trees, and that deck with the comfy furniture on it. As a child, many a long summer's evening was spent chasing fireflies while adults sat on comfy garden furniture out on decks and porches. I can still hear the quiet murmur of their voices.
Before I ever owned a computer, I would sit outside at a similar umbrella-shaded table and write all sorts of things on yellow legal pads. It's easy for me to picture the deck's rails covered with colorful flowers.
And that wildflower meadow! Me... the person who much prefers wildflowers over cultivated gardens any day! I do have one confession to make: it looks like there is an old clothes line out there. I had to hang laundry out on its clone every week. In the beginning, the crossbars on ours were empty pieces of pipe... until the day the wasps took up residence within and I got stung when I began hanging sheets out on the line. Ouch!
Thanks so very much for this summer edition of your blogging space, Candace. It brought back so many memories for me. (And I would imagine that I'm not the only one!)
