German term or phrase: Sommerflirt
"Sommerflirt mit der Natur"

Does anybody know what "sommerflirt" means?

Ive tried in different dictionaries but I've no idea.
This is taken from a travel magazine and this is the heading which then goes on to describe a scenic location.

Many thanks for your help:)

falling in Summer love with nature


Explanation:
It's very poetic, so there are many posibilities:
Summer fling with nature, Enjoying the nature in the Summer...

neutral  Kerstin Green: Flirting is not equivalent to falling in love and definitely not to a fling!

agree  Thomas Pfann: I actually like the "falling in love" idea (not so much the "summer love", though) - it might work well as a direct invitation to the reader to "Fall in love with nature this summer".

agree  Lancashireman: Indeed. The word 'flirt' just sounds wrong for this context. // Alas poor America. Only one holiday per year? Or is it because the word Christmas has been banned?

neutral  Nicole Schnell: To Americans this means: A romance during the Christmas Holidays. Quite the opposite of summer... I do love your choice: romance
