My favourite thing is beach days and barbecues! My least favourite is sunburn when I get caught on cloudy days

Summer flowers are a favourite. Hot muggy weather is not.

My favourite thing is the longer days. I cant stand going around in the dark - however I get really frustrated with all the bugs and flies everywhere! the heat means germs and grossness

Best thing is having bbq's with family and friends. Worst thing is hayfever.

+ sun, sea, and sand... balmy evenings outside.

- humidity...... living in Cornwall with too many cars on the road.

The best thing about the Summer is the light mornings making longer more adventurous walks possible with our German Shepherd and light evenings mean we can do more with the grandchildren.
But the worst thing is the heat, since being seriously ill 2 years ago the heat for me now is a nightmare and to work in it is even worse.
