More or less. We've had two or three 80 degree days this month. It's a good start!
On the summer solstice, we had a lovely sunshiney day, warm but not too much, the mountain wind was quiet, the sky was bright azure blue. We lingered on the deck after dinner through the long sunset, watching the farmer rake his hay across the road and smelling the promise of more summer.
The rhodies are blooming though a bit later than usual.
Also, the irises- my most favorite called Repartee-
-and my second favorite Into the Night.
Floxglove have volunteered to be white this year instead of pink or yellow.
And I just love this Jupiter's beard! It's blooming near the honeysuckle in an unplanned coordination of color.
I'm ready for many more evenings like this.
