Summertime with the smell of dry hay

Summertime, time, time
Child, the living’s easy
Fish are jumping out
And the cotton, Lord
Cotton’s high, Lord so high….
 
Summer always reminds me of the smell of dry hay, as I grew up in the Polish countryside, where summer is always the time of harvest.
Another association with summer are festivals. And here comes to my mind my favorite song of Janis Joplin, with the title: SUMMERTIME … And you, what do you associate SUMMER with? 🙂
