Tomorrow may be the Solstice
but summer's heat arrived with a vengeance today.
After work I stopped by the Allentown Rose Garden.
Tree Swallows live in the birdhouses placed atop each pergola.
You know it's hot when the birds start panting.
I love the smell of heat soaked roses...
The warmth gives such depth to the scent.
Not like the hothouse blooms I buy at the store.
As I was leaving I passed a young man carrying his
guitar case over to a bench by the pond.
What a lovely way to end the day.
If only I could have stayed to listen.
More heat tomorrow.
