Lovely! I think you've captured the best of summer in those shots. I notice there are none of any commuters on a crowded bus, but we won't think about those things today.

YEA!! Purple Flowers, Baseball, and Fireworks!!

Summer can't get any better than that!!

Wow...how did you manage that fireworks shot, or for that matter, the blurred backgrounds with the flowers...I LOVE it. I'm doing baseball and fireworks on the same night in two weeks...although we are stuck indoors for it...sigh...
