Looking Back on June and July
We were so busy in June that I didn't get a chance to post my usual month-end roundup of photos. Covid lockdown was coming to an end and my family and friends finishing their vaccinations, so that meant celebrations and the return of being social in person - what a joy! We hosted a "sibling reunion" for my brothers and sisters-in-law, then went to our cabin in Montana for a week off. When we got back we had so many flowers we decided to upgrade our subscription bouquets to a larger size, and we donated flowers to Flowers of Comfort, an organization that makes bouquets for hospices and hospitals.
The garden was joyful too - snapdragons everywhere, then strawflowers and scabiosa. Zinnias were growing tall, getting ready to bloom later in July. Shasta daisies hit their peak in June, and I've never seen them so tall - nearly five feet.
