The taste of summer

The merry berry connection: Blueberry yogurt cream
"I found my thrill, on Blueberry Hill..." I'm pretty sure this song isn't about blueberries, but every time I hear it, all that comes to mind is a huge amount of those berries waiting to kiss my taste buds. And no, I didn´t get the season wrong! It´s just, that the longing for summer is my constant companion…I dream of it even if I´m wide awake. I´m already making plans for this summer and just the idea of it lightens my mood in the darkest hours. So here, I present you with my personal taste of summer. And what is your favourite taste of summer? Share your toughts!
