Summer, Childhood's Paradise

Image: Dorothy Wallace

Then followed that beautiful season, SUMMER...

Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light
And the landscape lay as if new created
In all the freshness of childhood.
Henry Wordsworth Longfellow

Hoola hoops, bike rides, push up orange ice cream bars, kickball, tether ball, books, hammock, lake breezes, picnics, fans, telephone talk, purple thrift, fresh mown grass, garden, fireflies, sweet tea, naps, playing tag, running through fields, lemonade, Mama's sewing machine, crop tops, line dried sheets AHHH...... 

Such were the sounds and sights of a vintage childhood!
