June went by so fast it almost disappeared before I grabbed a piece of it. It came in like a lamb and went out like a rabid lion.
It was a dry month here, moving from a springtime of nonstop rain to 2 months during which I think we had maybe 2 days of rain and a few sprinkles. We are officially having another drought. So far, it’s not as bad as last year, but we are still 6 inches below normal rainfall as we head into the dry months of summer.
May and June are the months of flowers. May was chilly and everything was slow to bloom. Finally during this past week and a half, everything bloomed. There were birds too, though it was harder to get pictures because my window was blocked with the flowers I grow inside the house — my indoor garden.
And Garry and I took each other’s pictures. I took Garry’s pictures because he’s trying to get a bit of work as a movie extra or, with luck, a commercial — and he just likes taking my picture.
My two favorite drawings of the month.
And finally, the river as it flows down from the hills of Worcester to Narraganset Bay in Rhode Island.
About The Changing Seasons
The Changing Seasons is a monthly project where bloggers around the world share their thoughts and feelings about the month just gone. We all approach this slightly differently, though generally with an emphasis on the photos we’ve taken during the month.
For many of us, looking back over these photos provides the structure and narrative of our post, so each month is different. Some focus on documenting the changes in a particular project — such as a garden, an art or craft project, or a photographic diary of a familiar landscape. In the end, it is your changing season, and you should approach it however works for you.
There are no fixed rules around post length or photo number — just a request that you respect your readers’ time and engagement.
