Especially during a year when many people around the world have had their work schedules and home lives altered by COVID-19, keeping track of the day of the week and holidays becomes weird. This coming Saturday is the summer solstice with the longest daylight hours of the year in the northern hemisphere, followed by Father's Day on Sunday. In celebration of the long hours of sunshine, today's blog celebrates different aspects of nature. "This, that, and the other" from the high mesa. The first is the full moon at sunset, shot on 3 June at 9:04:41 p.m., Mountain Daylight Time.
An orchid that was given to us as a gift some years ago, is endless in its giving. I have featured it several times in this blog, but I can't help photographing it in all its glory every time it blooms.
The other happening is the bloom of the Polish Spirit clematis vines on the north side of our house. They just started late last week and have loads of buds waiting to unfurl themselves.
Thanks so much to Barbara, Wayne, Marilyn, Lisa, Donna, Jean and Sam, TTT, Debra, and Steve for checking in this week. With luck, there will be a seamless transition from this week's blog to next Monday's, but I appreciate your patience if it arrives later in the week.
until next Monday,
