~ Sunshine ~ In A Vase On Monday er…Tuesday! ~

My hydrangea blossoms are now in their light green/white/pale blue stage, and raspberries are ripening quickly.  Today’s vase (in my favorite heavy crystal one that holds heavy-headed stems well) is a mix of day lilies and penstemon.

At nine o’clock this evening we will experience the Summer Solstice so today is the last day of spring and tomorrow, the first day of summer in the northern hemisphere. Early summer is almost always lovely in the Pacific Northwest!

Thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for highlighting the beauty of cut stems.

    Such lovely flowers, Lindy. The penstemon are new to me. Love the little buds with the full blossoms. The coloring is a joy to my eyes. ❤

    Thank you, Olga. It was a cloudy morning, so the light wasn’t all that good and I had to correct more than I like to. Still they herald the end of spring and the start of summer — enjoy!
