Somewhere along the way, spring eluded me.  It was winter.  Then it was very very early spring.  Then suddenly it was full blown summer.  If I recall correctly, spring was nice this year, wasn't it?  Cooler than normal with lots of rain?  I think that's right.

We were very late getting our tomatoes and yellow squash planted.  We have harvested some veggies but now that it's July, they are all starting to die back because of the heat.  We completely missed planting marigolds and sunflowers and cotton, all of which I had intended to plant.

The birds have feathered their nests, gone through their courting rituals, laid their eggs and the new baby birds have already learned to fly.  Yup.  I pretty much missed all that.

OK.  So summer it is!
