Summer is a brownish-green and yellow snake who wears a green cloak. Her Spirit Flower sits just below the hood of the cloak, where her chest would be. The tip of her tail comes through a sleeve on the cloak to act as a hand.
A true child of the earth, Summer grew up on a midwestern farm, in a very strict household. Her job as an agronomic engineer led her to work with large farming corporations, where she developed breast cancer due to their heavy use of chemicals. Her sickness prompted her to leave her town behind, to heal. That is how she met Rose, the love of her life, and Stella's aunt.
During her recovery, Summer developed an interest in biodynamic farming. Her journey toward better health also led her to embrace her more spiritual side. It is at that point in her life that she vowed to live every day in the glow of what she called the universal love. With Rose, she built a blooming garden in a remote area for just the two of them. Many happy days were spent in this house they made for themselves, until Rose passed away.
Summer's last decade was filled with struggles. The loss of Rose left her adrift, and without her by her side, she found it hard to take care of herself. Then, when her cancer came back, it was for good. She died with Stella by her side.
Summer was the person who inspired Stella to become a nurse.
