Summer Leaves Makes Me Feel Fine


“Summer leaves makes me feel fine
Blowin’ through the jasmine in my mind…”

Yup, it sounds like Seals and Crofts’ song titled “Summer Breeze”… But with a twist. Instead of “breeze”, it’s “leaves” as we don’t have a breeze during summer in the Philippines.

Our summer here nowadays is quite brutal… It’s totally windless with high and oppressive humidity which makes our summer feel hotter!  The months of March to May are usually the least comfortable periods here in the Philippines.

But the things that delight me which makes our summer here bearable are the trees, shrubs, the flowers, and the fruits. After shredding their old leaves, the green becomes greener, the yellow becomes golden, and the flowers bloom. The best of it all, the seasonal summer fruits…! Yes, summer is brutal but the fun and colors it brings are more than enough to make our summer truly something to look forward to!
