I know it’s still officially spring and that peonies, irises & weigela are technically spring blooming plants, but I always think of June as the promise of summer to come. The blooms are bigger, brighter and more intense than the early spring blossoms. I’m enjoying finishing up my summer planters, adding even more colour to the garden. The vegetable garden is almost fully planted, except for a few late season crops. Finally, the spring chores are nearing the end and there is more time to relax and just enjoy what nature brings. My favourite activity this time of year has to be sitting out on the patio, drinking a cup of coffee in the cool morning or even afternoon sun.
So while we’ve just begun, here’s a little taste – with the promise of more.
