Top Ten: Summer Puzzles 2017

Here we are in mid-July, the height of summer season. Is it too hot where you live? Too rainy? Too dry? Here in Pennsylvania, it’s been mid to high 80s with the humidity varying from unbearable to not bad. I love to be outdoors and bike in the summer months. But the evenings are long and a good time to relax with a puzzle, with or without the TV on.

This week’s post gathers together the best of the summer-themed puzzles currently available at Puzzle Warehouse. Let’s revel in the sunshine while we can! 🙂

Here are my picks for the best summer puzzles available at Puzzle Warehouse.

12. “Summer”, D-Toys (1000 pieces)

For lovers of fine art, this classic scene celebrates the fruits of summer.   (Click on the images below to see the puzzle on Puzzle Warehouse.)

7. “Summer Pleasures” by Jim Hansel, Sunsout (1500 pieces)

      Oh I wish I could find that Shades of Summer Ravensburger puzzle in 500 pieces! It’s gorgeous, but I’m just too impatient to tackle the 2000-piece one. Speaking of patience, I LOVE Buffalo Games Wysocki puzzles, but the sky in “Fun-Lovin’ Silly Folks” nearly drove me crazy. I’ve worked harder puzzles, but I guess that day I was in too big a hurry and just wanted to BE DONE! 🙂

    Your going to single handedly be responsible for my wishlist growing out of all proportions to it ever being whittled down, I just about need another iPad to view it on ! Seriously though thanks for the wonderful tips and reviews. You can find me on IG under Jigsaw_Junkie … believe it or not I didn’t get the name idea from you but more from my mother continuously telling me me I’m addicted to buying more puzzles than I can ever get made !
