Summer introductions.


Today, I smell peonies growing in my front yard, the scent filling my office. The Earth has already opened its arms to the solstice and I am following suit.

Many across the country have already experienced summer’s heat … and fire or floods … but she’s only recently revealed herself to us here in the Pacific Northwest, shyly exhaling soft, warm air over all the living things. Big sigh. Not to say that things haven’t been growing around here; it’s a moist Lord-of-the-Rings sort of landscape lush with pine and green. A shade garden, I think they call it.

What I know is, it’s warmer outside than it is in here, so that’s where I’m heading. To celebrate the sun.

And … to find scented geraniums at the garden shop. I’ve got the truck today!
