Have fun before the bittersweet end of summer, when school, work and the family departing back home for the routine and occasional phone calls cloud the skies and the garden becomes something to glance out at between TV shows. With the summer grass, cool pools and lapping waves still lulling us into a delicious stupor, we look at snapshots of others enjoying life under the sun’s replenishing rays.

And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
—F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
