Today is the Summer Solstice in our hemisphere and the sun actually came out to play.
In celebration, I thought I'd take the opportunity to wander about the yard this evening and take a few pictures of some of the items in bloom. All pictures were taken with my little Canon Elph 300HS.

|(Lonicera, aka Honeysuckle)|
|(Generic rose - here when we moved in)|
|(Sunshine through a Cotinus Coggygria, aka Smoke Tree)|
|(Wisteria blooming over the back pergola & swing)|
I then took a few pictures of some garden art that Troubadour refinished for me last week. They were looking a little sad and faded so he brought out several cans of spray paint and went to work.
|(A snail - of course - I love snail art)|
|(A dragonfly - he gets new paint every year)|
And Basil was lazing around on the back porch steps so I couldn't resist taking his picture.
