If she had to pick one thing that she loves most about living in the Ohio Valley, Very Mary would definitely choose summer. Sure the humidity is about 4000% and she often feels like she's walking around in a sauna, but all that humidity makes for lushity, greenalicious summers.
Summers so vivid and sweet-smelling that she wants to roll around in the grass and squirm her bare toes through the clover. Summers bringing dozens of flashy butterflies and zooming hummingbirds and thick, hearty wildflowers. Summers so perfect that wee wild strawberries pop up alongside her stairs.
