The first week of summer after a month of heavy rains in OR – totally opposite of the recent years’ early fires. I looked up history June rainfall for our end of Willamette Valley (Averages and June 22 month to date); we’re actually lower than the averages by about a 0.1 inch, but if you ask anyone around town, they’ll say this is the wettest in ages … near term relativity?
Regardless … after the rain, the sun and with both, the flowers (all within walking distance from front door) – thanks to many of my neighbors for growing great flowers! — for better resolution, open the pics w/ a click. Did you find the bee?
