When one looks out the window in February, at winter’s blanket of white, it is hard to visualize that anything can grow in this country and yet, here we are in early June with green grass and gardens shooting upwards. It is marvelous to watch.
June is the monsoon month in our part of the world, so while we were away enjoying relatively dry weather in Jasper, rain was happening here and we received about 40 mm (1.5 inches) over the past weekend. I was finally able to mow my lawn in the afternoon on June 8, but had to cut it again on June 12, before the next rainy weekend.
The three photo sequences were taken on June 1, June 8 and June 12 in that order.
These last shots are from June 12 and show the yard in its best light. I harvested rhubarb, Romaine and leaf lettuce today.
