It's getting up into the 90th here in Vegas and that's one sign of summer approaching. I also noticed more people out on there patios, and in the parking lots working on there cars. Another sign of summer are the bugs coming out. Lots of bees alreadyand I already had some water bugs in my tub. What are the signs of summer in your neck of the woods?

The first signs of summer approaching for me in New Mexico is the tree thats that are all blooming already, the loud chirping of the bird, the rabbits running around along with the road runners. Also being able to leave the doors open to let air in because the house is getting warm. We wait to we can't take the heat to put the air on. Its just to save on the bill. I think I could live most of the summer without it because once it goes on I will be cold and everyone else will be comfortable. I actually will go outside to warm up.

That sounds beautiful. I've been to New Mexico once but it was in January and it was freezing. I know what you mean by the power bill though. I have my thermostat set on 81 and it's already kicking on.

The heating bill is worse then the cooler but I will still wait as long as I can before putting it on.

I am having kind of a peaceful day, I made German potato salad and in a while we have it with some hot dogs. Didn't have the money this weekend to go anywhere so I've been going for a couple of walks around the neighborhood enjoying the weather

Oh if only things could be so black and white with regards to summer in England!! Our summer can last a week or several months, blink and you might miss it!! This year ( yet again) 'they' are predicting a wonderful summer - we shalkl see. Really this is still spring for us now, but it has been really pleasant and people have their barbecues out and their parasols up. The spring flowers are just going now but there are bluebells everywhere and all the birds are very busy building their nests. My garden is beginning to look bright and colourful , I a happy as this is the first year that I have had blossom on my pear trees so I am looking forward to some pears in the autumn. Hopefully we'll be getting some really nice weather and getting the chance to top up our rust into a tan!!

Sounds really nice. I've been to England when I was 16 and it rained the whole week. But the Fish and Chips and the Pubs were so good and fun. I hope you have a beautiful summer

Sign of summer here in the Philippines is when you see a lot of people coming out in flesh. It could be in a beach, pool, resorts, but anywhere in the country. even if im at home.., i would love to be in flesh because its really really getting hot in here during summer. And sad thing is, a lot of people got a heat stroke because of this super hot summer. So be careful and protect yourselves from too much heat.

Thanks for caring, and I'm usually inside unless we go to the lake and then I try to not be in the sun for to long. At least we have air conditioner but it gets really expensive on your power bill in the summer month.

Hi Missybear, WE are in the middle of the terrible heat of summer. In our country when summer is approaching, ants are coming out together with some insects...they are collecting and saving foods for the rainy days. crickets are creating sounds and noise and even snakes are coming out of their "haven".

Hi Missybear! I don't actually realized what is the signs of summer here in our place. As far I know it's getting hot everyday; I want to drink more liquid now and then as if my throat is drying up. There's no rain, the place is so dry. That's all, it is so good to know that you have this signs. I had never thought about that. Maybe I'll try to look around if we have the same signs. Summer is about to end. happy mylotting!

The weather here in Idaho has been crazy. We had snow earlier this week (I know it is May) and now it is only 60 degrees outside. Usually when spring and summer hit we see a lot of robins. We also smell a lot of skunks.
