June Gloom overtook the region, carrying over from May Gray. I’m not one to complain about this weather phenomenon in SoCal, because well do I know the furnace that awaits in August and September. I’ve indulged in brisk walks and I’ve dared to have hot tea. Besides, the gray skies make the flowers glow.
The month canters ahead, full of activity. Many things are unfolding rapidly, more rapidly than the blooms it would seem. I do pause to look at the flowers, though, as I dash hither and yon.
And I always stop at a Little Free Library. This one caught my eye recently:
Can we talk about the landscaping first? You can’t see the rest of this lady’s yard, but let me tell you, it’s a complete dream. She’s a plant sorceress. And look at what she’s done with the Little Free Library case! Adding decorative branches!
Aren’t these things delightful? I think my neighborhood has four Little Free Libraries that I know of. They’re popping up everywhere, like June flowers. And the best part is, they’re little treasure chests, you never know what’s in them. And it feels grand not only to find a read, but to return and put another one in for someone else. Our family loves everything about this. Books in bloom!
