The first shot is one I took today at Shelley Lake where Bill and I went for a morning walk. The rest are from my garden. We have speed dialed from a chilly spring to hot summer days in the space of a week.I'm sure the weather will continue to go back and forth some but it is amazing just how fast it got very hot. Even the cardinal couple in my backyard were kissing in the shade of the trees to stay cool.Most of my roses won't bloom until June but the old fashioned climbing ones are already in full bloom.
As I've mentioned before on my blog, I may not live in a rose covered cottage but I do have a rose covered storage building.I'll admit that I'm not looking forward to the summer heat, but it has been a wonderful spring and these early warm to hot days are quite pleasant.
My early azaleas are pretty much done blooming, but this azalea wall which is always the last to bloom is still in its full glory.To visit other participants please go to the home of Weekend Snapshot, and/or the home of Nature Notes.
