KNEE DEEP IN JUNE




"Tell you what I like the best --
'Long about knee-deep in June,
'Bout the time strawberries melts
On the vine, -- some afternoon
Like to jes' git out and rest,
And not work at nothin' else!"
-  James Witcomb Riley, Knee Deep in June




           
         A June fragrance I love - my 'little gem ' magnolia blossoms.


Ah June you are as capricious as April.  Unusually hot summer temperatures with little rain kept me on my toes as I had to keep my new transplants watered.  

I had to rush to pick the strawberries before the birds got to them.  They were juicy and sweet as usual.

I started planting my veggie garden in May -tomatoes, green peppers, squash, okra, basil, and rosemary.

A June surprise - my 7 year old yucca bloomed for the first time !





June was full of surprises both in the garden and life.  The good news is that my younger sister, son and daughter all plan to re-locate here to North Carolina this year .  I will definitely need a larger dining room table !
