First Day of Summer

Welcomed With Heavy Rain

Today is the official first day of summer but the weather doesn’t seem to want to cooperate.  Morning started much cooler than summer should start with, then the rain arrived, pouring down and accompanied by strong winds.  Over all, it’s pretty wet and cool with sunshine peeking out here and there.

Tomatoes looked very unhappy being blown left and right and soaking wet.  Other plants and flowers perked up every time the sun came out.  They look so pretty with the water droplets hanging from their leaves and petals.

First Day Of Summer

Yes, Looks Very Much Like Summer

Today is the official first day of summer and the garden looks very much like summer.  The weather is also perfect..cool, sunny, with a little breeze.  Juvenile birds tag along with their parents and wait to be fed on branches near by.  The chicks from the second family of Tree Swallows learn to fly by gliding around the garden.

Over all it’s a great day to welcome summer.
