This is the first big butterfly I've seen this year. And my first rose has now bloomed. What a lovely month is June in West Virginia. Oh, and I saw my first fireflies two nights ago.
And the photo below is from my (Jennie) yard yesterday. Yes, June is a lovely month in Oregon too. Everything is SO green, and this June the rhododendron's are running into the roses and peonies and the iris into the day lilies, and I'm outside in delight. This must be why bride's have traditionally chosen this beautiful month to marry in.
"And what is so rare as a day in June? Then, if ever, come perfect days.
Whether we look, or whether we listen,
We hear life murmur, or see it glisten."
James Russell Lowell
