Today

So here we are in June and we're finally getting some of the rain we should have had in April and May. Today is dark, rainy, and very chilly! I closed all the windows first thing this morning and grabbed a flannel shirt from my closet to ward off the cold.

Things are so pretty right now in East Hampton. The lilacs are gone but the azaleas are in bloom and many ornamental trees are beautiful.  This past weekend I got my pots planted on the deck and bought some pretty hanging pots for around the back door. We still have a lot of work to do in the yard to repair damage done by the severe winter-we had to pull some bushes and now have to find replacements. I put one rhododendron in and we will need at least three more of something in addition. It's a never-ending process, landscaping!

June will soon be very busy as the family from out-of-state arrives in another week and we'll be spending lots of time with family through June and July. It's a great time of the year. Today may be a bit dreary, but we need the rain. And good times are ahead of us!
