“What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.” ~ Joseph Addison
Hot off the press is the Weekend Photo Challenge from weeklyprompts.com – Heatwave – another one chosen by GC.
If you have attempted to take part in the photo challenge the original published link was incorrect, this is the correct one.
My response to the challenge is something of a mix and match approach.
Heatwaves here in England are a good deal milder than they are in Canada where this week temperatures soared into the thirties.
Nevertheless, our summer has begun and bringing with it, the warmth of the sun, lifting our spirits, inspiring our smiles and instigating a cheerful hello to those we meet.

Defying Convention – A couple of days ago, when enjoying a picnic within the grounds of a castle with two of my daughters, two older ladies, both wearing very short shorts walked passed us. The sight of them took us by surprise because over here, ladies wearing shorts in public is not a regular occurrence, and certainly not in my neck of the woods, gentlemen, informally yes, but most ladies tend to save this type of attire for occasions such as holidays in the sun (vacations) or relaxing at home in the garden.
