Well . . . Hello Summer!
Actually, we have had such hot temps since early May,
so it has felt like summer for quite some time!
But, after that long, cold winter, who cares!
Bring on the warm temps!
(Hate to wish it away, but my frizzy hair and I could do without
the extreme humidity!)
I scared a few people the other
morning after my early morning run!
Anywho, here's to summer and some of our favorite things!
So happy to see my lovely hydrangea decide to bloom this year!
The bee balm is also blooming!
I always think of it as a precursor to the 4th of July
as it reminds me of a firework!
With that name, I figured it was a flower to either keep
away or lure bees!
You can actually make tea from the leaves
which is a balm for sore throats and headaches!
Bonus -- the oil in the leaves can be used to treat
insect bites and congestion!
it has a lovely big red bloom!
Who knew all these interesting facts??
Dr. Google, that's who!
And now, you do too!
Summer is time for the pool
and chips for Miss M -- that chip-loving girl!
Big bro, Connor (Cboo) also was able to join us one afternoon
at the pool.
Welcome Summer -- we are so happy to
have you back!
