Show summer some love

Yard Party

Of all the seasons celebrated in West Michigan, we locals wait all year to show summer some love.

Summer’s long, sun-filled hours quickly melt memories of gray days that pepper the rest of the year.

As the days lengthen, let’s spill out of doors to our own backyards or our neighbor’s. There’s picnics to be packed and sunsets and evening skies to marvel.

Why give summer so much love?  In our neck of the woods, it may be the shortest of the four seasons. Summer provides a sunny umbrella for being active outdoors, grilling a burger and re-experiencing the joy of gardening.
