    Pupkin Soup and Cherry Bread coverNights are short; days are long. The sun rises early and the northern hemisphere turns towards the light. The temperature rises, clothes are shed and we wiggle our bare toes in our sandals, which have returned from their exile at the back of the wardrobe. The world grows lighter, everything hums with life and everywhere you look things are crawling, growing. The forest is dense and lush and full of wonderful shade; the sea is blue as though someone’s painted it, and the grass becomes a plush rug. In other words: it’s summer!
