Welcome to Summer!

Summer started today, yay!  Yep, we checked the calendar and it IS the 21st.  Bonus, it has started out this morning with some sunshine.
Moe says:
 Breakfast first, then I take up my post at the window.  Lots of activity outside in the yard.
I keep both eyes on that tasty looking squirrel....and at times, the tasty looking chipmunk.
Mindy says:
At last, I have the bed all to myself.   I am not in any hurry whatsoever to rush into this first day of summer.   I prefer to savor it.
Cookie says:
I need a few more zzzzzz's before I get up.....unless 'breakfeast' is about to be served!
 Mike says:
Don't call me late for breakfast...... I am just resting my eyes, I can still hear even when you think I am not listening.
Because summer has officially started, things in our garden are growing and blooming, take a look:
 These columbine plants sow themselves all around our yard...sometimes there are light pink ones.

This is our magnolia tree which blooms later than other varities in our neighborhood.  It is called Oyama , a Japanese variety.
If you are in the northern hemisphere, have a great first day of summer otherwise have a great first day of winter!
