According to the weatherman today is the meteorological beginning of Summer. It's certainly a gorgeous day - blue skies, mild temperatures with a nice breeze out of the northwest, and low humidity. I went looking for the signs of the season on my way to the grocery store this morning, and I found them along the Dykeman Walking Trail in the Dykeman Spring Nature Park. Yup, it's here!

Multiflora Roses along the trail. These are a sure sign that it's June. And the scent is heavenly!
Blackberry blossoms along the trail. Looks like there's going to be a bountiful harvest come July.
I don't know what this flowering tree is, but it dominates one stretch of the trail
And here's a little welcome to Summer, the medieval round "Sumer Is Icumen In", performed here by the Hilliard Ensemble. Enjoy!

  1. ended up pushing 90 here today, but a storm tonight cooled it down. I enjoyed listening to the round. You always post interesting music...lovely photos of the blooms as well.

  2. Yes we have had similar announcements about the beginning of "meteorological summer" - something I had never heard of until recently. Meteorological or not - it ain't a coming in around here.

  3. Taxi cabs can get you to a place so you don't have to pay for parking and worry about all kinds of parking tickets, drinking violations, and other problems that might come along the way. The only thing is, that they are not always just driving down the street at any time that you might just walk out there and try to hail it. They are not obligated to check for you.
