We love to go up in summer and enjoy the seeing the green grass , collect Local fresh flowers in full bloom, and watch the animals come out and play. We love to see local farmer ‘s baby animals getting bigger and full of mischief as they play in pastures. As with many place seeing Summer is full spender , and feel the warm air breeze come into home on a warm nights is pleasant delight. And we love to welcome the thunderstorms that come with summer heat. I love to watch them with families and we feel the rain on our faces.
