Summer.........Sum, Sum, Summer.....
Happy “first day of summer” to you all. We had rain in the night and the clouds are still hanging around.
It seems cool today with a damp breeze in the air. There was a half inch rain that took place over night. All rain is welcomed but now our river banks are going to be overflowing. The lake that we live close to was emptied out as much as they could but it now is back to flood stage again.
My purchase at the bargain table last year has proven to be a good rose. I have never owned a rose with this kind of bloom before. I never could tell last summer how it was going to grow but this year I can definitely that it is putting out clusters.
I plan on working in the garden areas today until that heat drives me inside. It is actually a great season for us for growing things. Summer is officially here on the calendar. Our cornfields have stalks that are almost three feet tall already with those farmers that planted early this year. Knee high corn is gone already and shoulder high will be seen by the fourth of July. I am taking a day off from being at the farm and will return tomorrow. I can see that the temperatures in the United States is letting up a little but at this time of the year it is expected. I appreciate everyone stopping in today. Everyone take care and be safe out there.
