Last Days of Spring

Monday, June 26, 2017

It's been really hot here. So hot, in fact, that a wildfire has been raging for almost 10 days near my hometown and has burned over 40,000 acres of beautiful mountain forests. Despite the tragicness of the fire, it's still been beautiful here. I live about 200 miles from my hometown, in northern Utah.

Recently, I wandered over to the local carnival that happens every June, and perused the booths and people watched.

June in Utah is beautiful. The weather heats up, and our blue skies stay sunlit from 5:00 am to a little after 9:00 pm. Despite how hot and dry it gets here, we still get to have fairly decent gardens, as long as we water regularly. It doesn't rain much here, but flowers still seem happy to be here. 

The hidden rose garden in my town, that I wrote about here, was looking lovely again when I paid it a visit after the carnival.

I also found myself walking next to a wall of honeysuckle on my way back to my car. I can never resist a photo of a wall of flowers.

Welcome to summer, everyone. This is the season of abundance, warm weather, and lots of fun. I intend to make the most of it.
