Sisterhood Stories – The taste of summer

This post calls for music, so press play and read on…

What does summer taste like to you?  If you close your eyes and imagine yourself bathed in sunshine, a warm breeze messing your hair, and with your feet in water, what would be the best thing to go with it? I think of cherries.  And strawberries, warm from the sun, freshly picked in the garden.  I think of rosé too.  Or mojito.  Yes, mint and lime… Everything seems to taste better in the sunlight.  The more summer goes on, it’s taste changes.  There’s ripe tomatoes, corn on the cob and basil.  Blueberries and blackberries. My mind gets carried away with all the thoughts of fresh food I can enjoy in the summer.  I’ve always preferred fresh dishes over roasts, soups or stews, the more autumnal or wintery dishes.  What food is your favorite, and what does the season taste like to you?  Do tell.

    Beautiful. Thank you for this bit inspiration. I love that you posed a question of what summer tastes like to the reader…it evokes thoughtfulness. It tastes like pineapple & coconuts to me and smells like warm salty beach air with a hint of suntan lotion.

    Any fresh fruits or salads, really. Maybe paired with a BBQ? But a bowl of mixed fresh berries is just the best: Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and the odd blackberry – YUM!

    One of my favourite pieces of music and so so so appropriate for the day dreaming you’ve just encouraged me to do. Adore those pics as well xx
