Why we long for July in March

Perfect flowers, soft rains, warm sun - to start

Dripping with purple

I love the wonder of snow in winter, but sometimes - usually after shoveling - I get tired of it.

Today I was going through summer flowers from my garden, to see if any qualified for Flickr's best flower photo contest. I could suddenly smell the perfumes of July and feel the warmth of that sun on my face. The longing was acute and quite physical.

To keep all of us going until July comes along again, with its heady rush of sensual experiences, I posted some of the summer garden photos that are special for me but that don't qualify for the contest.
