all of a sudden


The calendar will tell you that the first day of summer comes on June 21st, but all of a sudden I think summer may be here already. Why?

• there are flowers blooming everywhere
• orioles, cardinals, white-crowned sparrows and chickadees wake me up each day when they sing at our backyard feeders
• I have a sunburn
• the windows and doors of the house are all open to let the cool breezes through
• we've been barbequing
• the laundry hamper is filled with shorts and t-shirts

I love the flowers out every where. I think this might be my favorite time of year!

What a pretty little bird. We have one similar here that we call a honey eater. I do like the birds; they enrich the garden I think. I hope you will enjoy your Summer. Early Winter here for us. Brrrr.

We finally got some spring weather here, and I'm in no hurry for a hot and humid summer! Viva la spring!
