Summer is here!
This is my summer centerpiece which I understand may not be obvious to anybody but me. I know people tend to think of summer in bright colors. But the epitome of summer to me, the part that makes me love summer especially, is the sunny summer mornings on the beach, when the light is a crystal clear and almost invisible blue, the sand is bright white and the water is blue blue. Not the hazy yellow light, off-white sand and almost green-blue water of the afternoons. Don't get me wrong, I'll take a summer afternoon over any other afternoon of the year but there's just something especially perfect about the mornings. And this centerpiece to me says not cold and dark as I suspect it may to most, but bright and crisp and clean like a hot summer morning on the beach.
