My Favorite Sign of Summer

We have many signs of summer in this region of the country, longer daylight hours: less rain, noisy, bobnoxious kids home from school, and bright yellow Goldfinches at the feeders.

But this is my all-time favorite Sign of Summer:

And it’s right here on Bainbridge Island (although there are other, delicious places for U-Pick berries in the area, too).

When I see that sign, I know it invariably leads to this:

A bit of red heavenly goodness. Okay, maybe more than just a bit.


What are your favorite things to do with these little bits of heaven? Do you have some other favorite sign of summer?
