It's Summer!

It's the first official day of summer and the longest day of the year! How exciting! Too bad it's so overcast today. We probably won't notice how long it takes the sun to set.

This time of year, lawns start to get brown spots, but the trees are lush and green with mature leaves. Lots of flowers are out too. Speaking of flowers, check out this link to an article about some highly unusual orchids. They look like animals! My personal favorite was the Holy Ghost Orchid.

6 Amazing Orchids

This post is still rather short, so enjoy these photos of our birth flowers. (Some of us are born in months that have multiple birth flowers, so we chose the one we liked best in these cases.)


April's birth flower is the daisy. 

Daisies symbolize innocence, loyal love, and gratitude


May's birth flower is the lily of the valley. 

Lilies of the valley symbolize happiness, humility, and sweetness.


June's birth flower is the rose.

Roses symbolize love, beauty, and appreciation.


August's birth flower is the gladiolus.

Gladioli symbolize sincerity, strength, and infatuation.

October's birth flower is the marigold.

Marigolds symbolize grief, hopefulness, and grace.
