Spring & Summer Inspiration for Your Posts

Tulips outline the walkway to Oklahoma City’s Crystal Bridge Myriad Botanical Gardens 

Every photo or written insight you have ever submitted or thought about submitting to Agent Insight looks different in the spring and summer seasons. If you have shown or discussed a feature earlier in the year, revisit it now.  Tom Compise, RE/MAX at Home in Edmond, OK, posted an earlier photo of the city’s elegant Crystal Bridge structure. Now, he’s adding one from a different angle featuring the lush tulips blooming outside.  It’s a great way to enrich his original post and show off some spring beauty.

The next four months should inspire dozens of ideas for your posts. This is a spectacular time of year to show off the beauty of your area and the myriad of diverse activities available. 

Make a list of all the possibilities for great spring and summer coverage of your market area. Here’s a kick-start:

  • Blooming trees, shrubs, and flowers in your neighborhoods, parks and storefronts
  • Baby animals, bird houses and feeders, ducks on a pond
  • Vacation destinations in your area
  •  Summer sports. including  baseball, soccer,  hiking, biking, golf, tennis, boating, waterskiing, swimming, and fishing.
  • Holidays:  Memorial Day, Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, Flag Day,  Father’s Day, Independence Day, Labor Day
  • Food venues like picnics, restaurants with outdoor dining, grilling at a neighborhood block party, farmers markets
  • Outdoor theaters and concerts, movies in the park, drive in theaters
  •  Parks, dog parks, walking paths
  • Festivals
  • Flea markets

We’ve received many great seasonal photos over the years. Here are just a few with the credits listed at the end of the article.

Good Morning, Long Beach!
