I do believe summer has arrived, albeit hesitantly, quietly, and certainly without the seemingly endless sunny warm days (today for instance, the clouds and cool weather are back). We have however had some sun, and the thermometer has reached 70 on a couple of occasions.
I was in the gardens yesterday working on the extensive weeding task that seems to have gotten away from me. I clearly hadn't been in the garden pasture for a while as the weather hasn't been all that inviting... However, when I was weeding around the red raspberry canes, I glanced up and saw this!
I then turned around and would you believe - there are peas! Honestly, this is the first year that they have come without me noticing.
The two little boys had a wonderful time picking the red raspberries and eating them immediately, still warm from the sun. The golden raspberries are nearly ready as well so I see a tart or two in our future...
Some of my favorite flowers are also blooming, which makes me so happy as my favorite time of year is early summer when the prettiest flowers bloom in the sun and gentle warmth. Now if only allergy season didn't accompany all of this beauty...
Have a wonderful rest of your week my friends,
