夏天通常还会与成长与成熟联想在一起,尤其是与植物的生命周期更有关连。的确,在那些拥有充分日照的地区,夏天确实是植物生长最快速的季节。对许多农夫来说,夏天是最忙碌的季节,他们必须在大太阳底下辛苦工作着。但是夏天也是农场最喜悦的季节,因为第一批蕃茄、玉米已经可以收割了,而甜美的桃子也已经成熟可以吃了。通常大家会在这时候享用大餐来庆祝。这也是美国人的家庭假期,人们会到海边或山上、湖边旅游,或者是在家中后院烤肉作乐。你最喜欢的夏季活动是什么呢?


The concept of summer has often been associated with growth and maturity, especially when it comes to plant life. And indeed summer is the season of greatest plant growth in areas with healthy summer showers. For many farm workers, summer is a busy season filled with hard work under the hot sun. But summers on the farm also yield the special pleasures of the first ripe tomato, fresh corn on the cob, and sweet juicy peaches picked and eaten right from the tree. Festivals celebrating food are common this time of year. This is usually also a time for family vacations in the U.S., with trips to the seashore or a mountain lake and barbecues in the backyard. What are your favorite summer activities?
