Summer Variety

We all look forward to summer! Barbecues, flowers, friends, and so much more we enjoy. There is so much more variety -- or so it seems. From more plentiful fruits and vegetables to choose, to the sights to see in gardens and off the beaten path where we are more free to roam, we enjoy the opportunity of that variety.

But, there is also variety in the weather. Just when we sigh over 90+ degree days, a sudden storm will blow in. Not all those storms are fun when they include hurricanes, tornadoes, or hail. But, it does add to the amazing variety of summertime.

Members of the Boomers and Beyond Etsy Street Team live all over the world -- and have so many different plants, flowers, and even storms they see. Often those are interpreted in their artwork. Just look at these amazing finds inspired by the variety of summertime!!
