Our days are longer and the roses are trying to bloom, but, as you've heard already, the outside temperature still hasn't reached 75 degrees here yet this year, a fact that delights the radio hosts, judging from their constant reminders. We recently planted a new rose tree which is trying valiantly to bloom and which now has weather-related evidence in the form of "black spot".
Lest you think me a complainer, it's true we did have one nice weekend recently when we jumped in the car and headed to Bellingham. You could even see Mount Baker in the distance!
June also marks many passages, including high school graduation. Our neighbor girl, who was less than two when they moved in, is headed to the University of Montana (and blue sky country) in the fall. I think she may need this, come winter.
So here we are at the Summer Solstice. Can summer be far behind? We are tired of running the furnace and temperatures in the fifties!
