June is here and now the growing season is moving along nicely. No more fits and starts. The days are warm and plants are fairy bursting from the ground! I start each early morning with coffee on the front porch, surveying the garden, serenaded by birds. Yesterday, I caught sight of a handsome fox racing across the yard and into the treeline. What a treat!
Deutzia’s soft fragrance wafts over the garden on the spring breeze. Baby wrens are fledging hesitantly at their mother’s urging from a birdhouse onto the nearest tree branch. They teeter-totter to gain their balance, chirping wildly the whole while. Showers last night intensified every color, illuminating each leaf and flower. Late spring in the garden is a magical time.
Come along on a quick tour. I’ll share with you some of the beauty I began the day with!
