Now it’s on to summer


It’s behind us now, this recent June, the month when the days are longest, the summer hopes are highest and the gardens are at their loveliest. The summer solstice slipped by and today is Canada Day, marking 148 years since confederation. Here in Manitoba, the sun is shining, albeit through a bit of a haze courtesy of the forest fires in Saskatchewan. The plants in my garden have all recovered and look as though they had never suffered any setback from an erratic spring.

How did that late snowfall turn into this blaze of colour that is my garden today? How did the time between this post and my last go so quickly? Time has an all new dimension in these latter years – the hours whiz by like minutes, the days like mere hours. And they are so full. I hear the phrase, “I’m busier than I’ve ever been,” over and over again from people who, like me, are on the “freedom 95 plan”. Not that we are straining for freedom. It is a privilege to be able to put all that learning to work for a good purpose.

The picture gallery below will bring you up to date . . . I have to go an sit in the garden and learn more about how to use social media to increase our subscription reach for my three garden magazines. Learning? Well that’s part of the fun, not to mention the time stealer, too!
