The garden in June: In the Bower of Bliss

A June garden is one of the most beautiful, life-affirming places to be-if you sit still long enough, you can almost see (and hear!) the growth. Vines and tendrils reaching towards the light, fruits beginning to form. Roses scent the air, swallows swoop and dive, light rains may still fall. The raspberry bushes are loaded and ripening, the beets have been thinned and are beginning to swell, lavender is blossoming and bees are everywhere. The June garden is endlessly fascinating and very romantic.
