"I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June."
- L. M. Montgomery
If we lived in a world where it was always June it would be like living where
every day was Christmas - so much excitement that we'd soon be worn out from it.
Like too much candy, it would lose its sweetness.
But we don't live where it's always June and in fact, June is speeding by much too fast!
Keeping up with what's blooming is hard work, especially when the blooms come and
go each day as the daylilies do.
I wrote about the hydrangeas in bloom in my last post, but when I downloaded photos tonight
I found this image that I couldn't resist sharing.
The bee balm has been blooming for a week or so and was so beautiful when the blooms were fresh.
They're a little worn looking now, but the bees don't care.
One of my favorites, and one that will bloom all summer, is the coreopsis.
The Sunny Border Blue Speedwell and the Becky Towe Phlox just began to bloom this week.
They, too, should bloom through the summer.
Two elegant calla lily blooms remind me of my daughter's wedding, when she carried them in her bouquet.
There are more photos of more blooms, but maybe that would be like too much candy.
I'll save some for later. But I want to close with this photo of a volunteer sunflower.
Doesn't it look like it's getting ready to take off and fly away into the sun?
Head on over to May Dreams Gardens to see what's blooming in other gardens on
