~Hollyhocks getting ready to bloom...
"On this June day the buds in my garden
are almost as enchanting as the open flowers,
Things in bud bring, in the heat of June, the
recollection of the loveliest days of the year..."
~It is the month of June,
The month of leaves & roses,
When pleasant sights salute the eyes,
And pleasant scents the noses.
~Nathaniel Parker (The Month Of June)
~Pink Hollyhocks, Purple Petunia's,
Bambie, & Butterflies...
~Dirty hands, Iced tea,
garden fragrances thick in the air,
And a blanket of color before me?
Who could ask for more.
