Catching the Last Waves of a Twin Cities Summer

In the Twin Cities in August, the weather can be hot and the nights balmy, but not always. Weather is unpredictable here but that’s all right because we Minnesotans have been trained to be complacent about the weather. Cone flowers and all varieties of daisies are headlining in the flower beds and sunflowers are standing tall in the fields.

There is a collective and audible sigh of relief from parents with the beginning of the school year in sight. Their kids are contemplating their return to the class rooms as well. Some are reluctant to see the end of summer vacation, while others are excited with anticipation of what is ahead for them in the new school year.

We are in the final weeks of the season, somewhere just beyond midsummer glory and before its swan song. These days are lush and bountiful. We savor them with the knowledge that all too quickly they will come to an end. Let’s make the most of these final weeks as we countdown to fall. Whether you chose to spend the time feeling idle and blessed soaking up the warmth of the sun, or want to turn these last weeks into a full-scale celebration here are some ideas that will help you squeeze every drop of joy out of these last days of summer.

It’s June! In the Twin Cities Summer Is Knocking At the Door

June in the Twin Cities

Ahh June - the portal to Summer! Step into June and the entire glorious season of warmth and sunshine is beneath our feet, stretching out before us. June is weddings, kids out of school, family vacations, cooking on the grill and baseball. June is  bright blossoms exploding with bursts of color from the flower beds and strawberries melting with sweetness on the vine. I love that June is comfortable, warm but not hot and we are beckoned to the golf course, tennis courts, and favorite biking and walking trails.  

Summer in the Twin Cities is all that and more. Summer inspires us to celebrate with great music, art, food, drink, festivals and fairs. After a long winter are we ever ready! So without further fanfare (because I could go on for pages extolling the virtues of June) let’s take a look at what is happening on the sidewalks of Minneapolis-St. Paul this month.
