On the Cusp of Summer

Hydrangea in the Yard
Elkridge, MD
June 3, 2021

Memorial Day is the unofficial start of Summer. But, despite it being unofficial, the summer flowers are beginning to bloom. 

For instance the hydrangea in the front yard is blooming. It is an Endless Summer Hydrangea, and I call it the hydrangea that ate Elkridge because it is so large. 

There is evidence of other summer flowers beginning to bloom as the last of the springtime peony blooms fall from the bush

The lawn is fully green and thick in advance of the summertime heat which will thin the blades and may foretell a time when I will not have to mow on a weekly basis.

Note: I edited this item to correct the identification of the flower. Who knows why I originally called it a hyacinth?
