Here comes summer

Our long, mild spring has finally made the leap into summer, with a few suitable scorchers. Funny, somehow I thought we might hang out on the mild side for the whole season!
Here's what's happening in my yard right now:  In the front bed, the monarda and the lilies are duking it out to see who will be the tallest.

In the backyard, the blueberries are having a fabulous season. Too bad the blue jays think so too. They don't seem to care if the berries are ripe or not. For awhile I was getting berries from one of my plants that the birds seemed to be ignoring. Now, they're just stripping the bushes of everything. But they are so pretty, I can't get too upset.
Don't think I can't see you in there!
