Summer’s nearly here!

Here we are, mid-year in June. What a sweet month is is, filled with long sunny days, fragrant of roses, acacia and elderflowers, buzzing with bees. Makes you think about holiday trips and some exciting adventures ahead! It is only two weeks until Summer Solstice when we can enjoy the longest day of the year and summer will be in full swing by then. Time to appreciate this season’s abundance and bask in the glorious sun rays.

Lavender buds are starting opening up and I can’t wait to pick some of them and make lavender macerated oil. I have made rose petals oil but will write a separate post about roses and share some pictures as well. In the “Floral book of birthdays” June as month is entirely dedicated to roses. Lucky those born in June, my 2 nephews including!
