Summertime in Upstate New York

Ah, it's summertime in Upstate New York. Flowers bloom. Bees buzz. The aroma of grilling wafts on sultry, warm breezes. Fireflies flicker and the grass is oh-so green. Days are hot, nights are pleasant.

Yes, all's well in my corner of the world. And if all those signs aren't enough to convince you it's summertime here, maybe these will:

Harsh winters, salt spreaders and snowplows affect warm
weather driving conditions, too.

Take that corner carefully.
The drop, now guardrail-free, is a big one.

Reduce your speed here. I don't know what's going on
but it looks important, doesn't it?

I don't know about you, but honestly, I hardly
mind the road work. It's necessary, so why fight it?
Instead, I lift my gaze from time to time.
Isn't the view gorgeous?

Have a nice weekend!

Kathy, then you understand the summertime roads here. I didn't know you're from Watertown. It really is a small world. :)

Thanks for stopping in this gorgeous Friday morning! Hope you have a great weekend.

Lovely pictures, I remember how beautiful upstate New York is.
Everyone heads for New York City and many have no idea what beauties lie beyond. Having lived in New Rochelle and gone upstate too, I do remember very well.
