June-uary?

There is a common saying in Western Washington (U.S. state not Capital), summer doesn’t arrive until July 5th. We refer to June as June-uary.

Once upon a forested front yard.

A moment in a long ago January when winter arrived with a sugary blanket, coating a sweet winter day. Our snow globe confection melted away to gray.

A rose from my garden.

June, when brilliant-colored roses blossom and chase the summer sky’s gray away.
