Today, I am thankful for a summer in full bloom.
What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.
~ Gertrude Jekyll, On Gardening
After surviving an extended heat wave, my garden is bursting with color. The vibrant hues - hot pink and cool blue here, Tour de France yellow and deep red orange there, shades of regal purple everywhere - create a perfect impressionist painting worthy of Monet.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
