Part 2 of the early summer update......

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege

it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”

-   Marcus Aurelius 

"On this June day the buds in my garden are almost as enchanting as the open flowers.  Things in bud bring, in the heat of a June noontide, the recollection of the loveliest days of the year - those days of May when all is suggested, nothing yet fulfilled."

-  Francis King

Grocery store Roses

Some of the lovely lilies that grow in the garden

Some bright sunshine to carry us through until October

The Hollyhocks are sad this year, blighted and their leaves full of holes.

The garden at the end of June

Another grocery store rose

The poppies that came uninvited but welcomed with open heart

Sweet William that wandered over from the garden, along with the lamb's ears

Bee balm, a bright spot at the back of the bed

A fancy poppy in red tutu

More lilies

A medley of poppies and roses

The Shasta daisies come into their own
