Welcoming summer

Three weeks ago the peonies were on their way out... and no sooner were they gone than the bright orange of day lilies began to bloom and color the month of July.

This claro pitcher has seemed to take up semi-permanent residence on my kitchen table. I quite like the simplicity of what Meghan did with her lilies this year, but it would not have worked for me in this pitcher, it takes a lot of flowers to fill it!

One of my favorite parts about all seasons that are *not* winter are the ever-changing colors and textures we are presented with in plant form. So, welcome summer, I hope you stay awhile :)
