Really, it is Midsummer

Doesn't feel like it, since school starts in about ten days.  But if the first day of summer is June 21, and the first day of autumn in September 21...yes.  I tend to label the long vacation from school as summer, though this year it started in mid-May.

Anyway, after my road trip, I came back to a somewhat weedy but alive garden, thanks to Dan, the grounds manager, who kept it watered when rain didn't do the job:

He also planted some lovely perennials around the statue of St.Louise de Marillac:

Right outside the door, however, in addition to two volunteers:  a Milkweed ( host to Monarchs) and a Cleome, flourishes a mountain of weeds. I've begun to pull them up, but more needs to be done:
