Waiting For Summer
While the first day of summer is right around the corner, we in Southern California are patiently putting up with June gloom, a typical late spring, early summer phenomena resulting in overcast, cool days. With any luck, the sun comes out in the afternoon, sometimes not until four o'clock, sometimes not at all. While we all pull on sweaters with our shorts and flip-flops, and wait for the warm weather to occur, the garden goes on with the blooms that are typical for summer, depending more of hours of daylight than temperature for their cue to bloom. Soon, hopefully, soon.
