The BEST season for gardeners

Life is never boring in my world. It's suddenly nearly the middle of June, almost summer, and I haven't posted here at all of late. There are good reasons for this, none of them alarming--I'm simply so busy with work projects that I haven't had time to do the stuff that doesn't pay me. Plus it is the season for playing in the dirt, so when I'm finished my writing, photo and editing work for the day, I head for the garden; sometimes with camera in hand, of course, so I can catch delights like 'Francesca' primula in bloom! 

 Tomorrow I'm doing a talk at Louisiana Pacific's East River Plant during their Composting Facility's open house, and I'm looking forward to that. Afterwards I'll be heading to Oceanview Garden Centre in Chester (in case I need more plants) before returning to my own garden.
 At the moment, the chief scent in my yard is alfalfa hay from the field behind me and lilacs from beside the house, but the lavenders are also starting to bloom, and that makes me very happy. Isn't it just the best time of year?


  1. I love this heady season when things happen so fast in the garden and every day brings new blooms to marvel over. I find myself singing the song "June Is Busting Out All Over" from Carousel, especially the closing line of the chorus that exclaims that all this is happening "...just because it's June, June, June!!!" -Jean

  2. It is a wonderful time of year, when the garden comes to life! Love it, love it, love it!

  3. Hi Jodi, i've not been here for a long time. If i am in your vicinity i am sure there's a lot of subjects for photos. It would be very nice walking in the area.
