early summer's eve

We've had supper, chicken with Greek seasoning, asparagus, boiled potatoes, Naan bread, and feta cheese and tzatziki sauce on the side, (not too shabby for a Wednesday night!), and the air is still warm with a bit of a breeze. There are birds chirping, especially the finches. I can hear the bass from someone's sound system in the distance. I can also hear the bumblebees. Our tree is flowering and the bees are in their fat, fuzzy glory.

Find the bumblebee


Oh, there it is

The perennials  are starting to bloom here and there. As the creeping phlox fades, the irises show off, standing upright for now.



I had company for a while, as his fluffy lordship accompanied me.


My husband made me a decaf coffee and I'm waiting for it to cool down a bit. Everything smells heavenly. I'm working my way through the latest Elizabeth George novel and my other yard work can wait. I love June.

  2. Thank you Martha. I love Greek food, but we don't really have any authentic Greek restaurants around here. These photos were just taken on an iPhone, but are so much better than the Samsung tablet. -Jenn

  3. Your meal sounds delicious. As to June - here it is cold with a strong North wind blowing and no sign of the sun - so far nothing to love about it sadly.

  4. That's a nice looking iris. I'm still waiting for mine to bloom. What's the title of your book? She writes historical fiction, doesn't she?

    1. Hi Hen! This book is called A Banquet of Consequences. George writes murder mysteries with the main characters being Lynley and Havers from Scotland Yard. She has written some historical fiction, but it's her mysteries that I read. -Jenn

  5. Beautiful blooms, lovely kitty!

    Up here in northern Minnesota, we're waiting for it to warm up a bit. We're having an exceptionally coooool May and June.
