Savoring Summer

Photobucket

It's here! The days are long, skies are blue and lots of Eis for me and you. Abundant rose bushes line every garden on our daily stroll to the park...the coraly orange ones always calling my name.

Everyone was outside yesterday..laying out on blankets in the park, reading, drawing and sippin' beer at the outdoor caf├ęs and on park benches.

Never to be left out, we grabbed some burgers (not the same as home) and parked our buns in the sun too.

Curious as to how much longer our days are here than back home in Texas, I did some quick research. Yesterday, dawn was at 4:26am and dusk 9:28 pm here in Graz. That's a 17-hour day. It's two hours more than Houston with 15 hours (dawn: 5:54 am; dusk: 8:47 pm). You can feel it.

Yep, the dog days of summer are here.
