As I write this I find myself asking is it really June already? I have a love/hate relationship with this month, love because it’s really here, the promise of so many special days ahead, warm weather, summertime. Hate, because for whatever reason as soon as June hits, time seems to go into overdrive just as I want it to slow down so I can savor every moment from sunrise to sunset. There is amazing change that takes place in the gardens on a daily basis and I find myself lingering to admire it all as I stroll the grounds. Then, for weekend warriors as we are, we live those days filled with activities on the water, cookouts with friends and s’mores around the campfire until exhausted, we collapse, slightly sun burnt, into bed, happy and ready to do it all over again. There is a happy delirium in this season. That child like abandon of living for the moment and the pure joy of chasing fireflies. As we enter June, my wish for you all is to look through the eyes of a child, soak it all in and enjoy. Summer is here, we all deserve this rewarding season. Go out and make your memories! Happy June everyone.
