Ode to Summer ~ Link Up Love

“I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June.”
L. M. Montgomery

Summer has a signature that is all her own. Today we spotlight this season with the following posts shared from the 6th edition of The Art of Home-Making Mondays. I hope you are inspired to try some of these ideas!

Under an English Sky shares all things June (though a little late, I think the inspiration still applies!). Perhaps you will be left with the desire to embrace those details which makes this month special such as church calendar days, kitchen and craft creations, nature and garden projects, you name it!

I love this round up by the Gypsy Herbal! She shares 100+ Cold Drinks You Can Make for Hot Days. This is full of the tastiest looking concoctions and all which appear to be healthy! What a treasure for those hot, summer days! The "frothy raw chocolate milk" got my attention. What about you? 

For many of you, the children are on summer break. I love this list shared by Mom's Morning Coffee which gives you 10 Fun Activities That You Can Do with Your Kids That Double as Exercise. It keep your little ones active and playing, keeps you healthy and strong, and best of all, keeps everyone away from all those flashing screens!

The Homestead Lady shares ideas for preparing a children's vegetable garden. I think this is a wonderful idea to plant the seeds of gardening in the next generation (as well as another way to remove them from the temptation of television).

Is it too hot to play outside today? Sunshine by Channon shares two new ways to enjoy paper dolls (and not just for girls!). I love this idea and think it would be a great indoor activity to do during those heat-waves!

"Bright shines the summer sun,
Soft is the summer air;
Gayly the wood-birds sing,
Flowers are blooming fair.
