Summer Skies

Technically it’s not quite summer yet, so I suppose it’s appropriate that we have an overcast sky today and a forecast for rain over the next seven days. The Iris sure look fabulous, however. As does Rosa glauca and our Weigela ‘wine and roses.’

I managed to catch a cold about a week ago; I’m sure it was at Grand Old Day, out amongst the seething roaring mass of people, sun, and weekend exhaustion. Ah well- I suppose I needed an extra challenge during the last two weeks of preparation for my 12k race on June 14. I fit in a swim as well as an interval workout before the coughing started, so we’ll see.

We are very excited about our vacation, which starts in five days.
