Summertime Chillin’

Summertime, Summertime 

Time for Grillin’ 

Time for Chillin’ 

And cold beer swillin’ 

Anybody up for a cookout?

Watching the sun 

Setting over the hill 

Smelling sweet aromas 

Wafting from the grill 


Listening to the water 

singing its song 

no worries, no cares 

As it babbles along 


Temperature soars 

skin glistens 

Wind whispers 

To whoever listens 


Chilling by the pond 

Breeze blowing through the vines 

Sipping on a glass of wine 

Your hand in mine

    And what a PICTURE PERFECT summer image you’ve painted!

    I could actually smell, when you said…

    “Smelling sweet aromas

    Wafting from the grill”

    Ok, and please tell me these photos were taken in your backyard? It’s BEAUTIFUL!

    If they were, I’ll be over in a jiffy with a bottle of red wine – HA!

    Great post, my dear friend!

    I WISH!!! These were taken in Virginia last weekend at my cousin’s house (her guesthouse actually). She has an absolutely beautiful spot very close to the Skyline Drive. I think if I lived there I’d be a hermit. I’d never leave!

  3. I adore the photo journals

    How cool is this? Thanks Peg!

    Peg – wow! Where is this? I love this.

    Beautiful photos. I love them.

    And then your poem, just adds to it. And yes, these images paint a perfect picture of summer.

    A perfect wrap-up of summer. I love your photo’s! I live in Virginia, I may have to visit your cousin!

  9. HisBell says:

    Ohhh… love love this! Gorgeous photos and beautiful writing. (And of course partial to the wine!)

  10. Susie says:

    Hi Peg..I love the pictures and I love the poetry to go with. You have described such a relaxing an beautiful setting! I am back to my blog and I hope if you have time you will stop by!!! It is nice to be back among friends.

  11. Wow, this would make a great song!

  12. Mama Kat says:

    Cookout? Yes please.

    And tell me those pictures are not from your own property…because I will be forever jealous.

  13. that girl says:

    love the cookout photo!

  14. Love the photos. Sometimes wish I had a back yard so I could grill as well.

    Thanks for sharing,

      Thanks for stopping by! Always nice to see you! I have a backyard and grill (although not as nice as this one) but now since we have no kids at home we hardly ever use it!

  15. Heather says:

    Tell your cousin I want to come and visit her! Man that was just gorgeous and looks so peaceful and relaxing! I want me some of that! Sigh…

    • pegbur7 says:

      I know. Hubby and I want to go back. He wants to chll in the soaker tub! LOL If I lived there I definitely might become a hermit. I’d have no reason to leave.

    That patio is to die for. Temps are cooler here now at night. I’m looking forward to the patio fire ring and a glass of wine!
