PERENNIALS & PATRIOTS!

Iced tea month, it is! Just discovered this fact as I was checking out some blogging themes. The theme is a perfect fit for the day as we are in the midst of another heat wave.

June has been a month of waiting and wondering with a lot of life changes happening with relatives and friends.

One constant, however, has been the blossoming garden. Perennials are just bursting forth while the container garden is thriving as well. The shasta daisies are a summer favourite while the coreopsis, newer for me, is delightful to see as it blooms for a few weeks.

2012 SHASTA  DAISIES

These flowers are a daily tonic to see!

Enjoy the celebrations on both sides of the border in the upcoming week–Happy Canada Day July 1! Happy 4th, as well!  Best, all!

LAVENDER & LAUNCHES

The gardens are thriving!

Lavender is fragrant and plentiful, bordering the perennial garden.

With morning dew or an evening shower the scent is amazing

as it wafts throughout the house on a breeze.

Summer has arrived! Looking for a summer read or two?

You might want to check out Whole Latte Life , available in various formats at Amazon.com, a great first-novel about friends and relationships, life in general.

Recently, one of my poems has been included in a recently launched anthology. If animals perk your interest, you might want to read this collection entitled, Animal Companions, Animal Doctors, Animal People, also available at Amazon.
