Welcome June!!

We've flipped over a new page on the calendar! June is here! And in Arkansas, it brought super hot. muggy weather!! We broke a heat record yesterday!! I'm already dreading the summer. I'll try not to gripe, but I do not like summer!!
My June door hanging has butterflies on it!! I have Lantana in the yard and the butterflies really seem to like them!!
The four-letter word for June is "sail."  It's a perfect month to hit the beach or the lake and play in the water!
This is a summer sampler I made several years ago. Blue is my favorite color and it's a great color for June.

June Quotation

Then let us, one and all, be contented with our lot;
The June is here this morning, and the sun is shining hot;
Oh! let us fill our hearts up with the glory of the day,
And banish ev'ry doubt and care and sorrow far away.
