Summer Despite the Temperatures

Hydrangea Blooming
June 8, 2017
Technically, it is still the Spring season until June 21st. That is when the calendar officially heralds the beginning of the best season of the year. But, we all know, at least in the United States and in the Northern Hemisphere, that the unofficial beginning of Summer was a couple weeks ago with the Memorial Day holiday.

That written, the summertime flowers are beginning to bloom and despite the cool weather with 50 degree mornings and high 70 degree afternoons, the season is progressing. Yesterday the morning low was 48 degrees and the afternoon high was 73 degrees. Definitely Spring-like conditions and not conducive to swimming in my pool. Today should be a bit more Summer-like with the high reaching about 83 degrees. This morning, however, the temperature was only 58 degrees as I was working around the pool.

Today should be a needed change of pace because I am playing in a golf tournament. 

I guess my weekend is beginning a day early.
