It hit 90 yesterday and will again today so I think that means that summer has arrived. I love it. It is time for bike rides, long runs, and walks with the puppies. This week we have yellow calla lilies blooming in the garden, day lilies, and the sunflower seeds we planted two weeks ago are about three inches out of the ground! The front yard has gardenias, one last hoorah from an azalea bush, red roses, and tiger lilies are just starting to pop open. My pots of geraniums on the deck are doing well and giving me lots of color as are the mixed flowers on the front porch steps. It was a long cold winter and I am enjoying these flowers even more than I usually do.
