mid-June race to summer

There is no question that we are galloping towards summer. Cold nights are coming to an end and lately, days have been hot and dry. It was a tumultuous early spring for my partner and I. We both had health issues that kept us indoors. Meanwhile buds were bursting and grass was growing high. Some areas of the yard needed to be trimmed so we could walk the dogs and navigate around the house and vegetable gardens. When I was finally able to work outside, I had to accept that spring was in the lead.

  1. Your words are true and faithful. Dandelions and other weeds will survive long after the cultivars have dried up and blown away. Down here, (Texas), that’s how we know Sprint has arrived. I’m glad it’s slower where you live.
