The Summer Garden

The last day of June...June has been a swing month, with the weather swingly wildly between winter and summer. June has had gray skies, temperatures in the low 60's (brrr...) and even new snow in the mountains, as well as a couple of triple digit days.

But June has ended in perfection! Clear, skies so blue it hurts, the high temperature a lovely warm dry comfortable 82. To experience this to the fullest, I plopped my chair in the middle of the garden and just observed.

The lemon tree is heavy with fruit, thr bright sun filtering through the branches...


The maple tree is full yet airy...


The agapanthus are coming into bloom, a true sign of summer...



The plumeria is pushing out leaves like crazy...



The oleander is so full of fragrant pink blossoms...


The whole yard smells lusciously of playdough...


The gazing ball reflects it all in the center of things...


Including the one enjoying it all...
