June breezes in

June floats in on a gardenia-scented breeze, on violin strings, a fluttering veil, a handful of bird seed tossed for good luck. It's a diploma earned, a tassel turned, a sea of graduates turning to give a standing ovation to their teachers. It's goodbye and hello, hello and goodbye, a deep breath, a long sigh. Time to sign up for the summer reading club at the library, get the camp trunk down from the attic, pitch a tent in the backyard and get scared silly telling ghost stories. How far would you drive for a drive-in movie? This is the month of huge pink hydrangeas, watching a thunderstorm from the screen porch and a flat of strawberries made into jam for a sweet taste of June all year long.
