This first week of June is witness to the arrival of fierce color in our yard and in the beds along the side of our New England house. The full work slate of the next two weeks can be momentarily forgotten after I pull the car into the garage at the end of the day. I get to stand in the driveway then and look at the rhododendron blooms that mark the back border of the property.
Balm in Gilead.
