...and Summer Unfolds

  "It's not that bad.  I'm not saying I'd like to build a summer home here, but the trees are actually quite lovely." - Princess Bride
Seize the day, and worry not where spring went......or that it barely arrived ......today it's summer!

              Welcome to the Centennial Lakes Park, Edina, Minnesota...
A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds singing and the lawn mower is broken, - James Dent..... and there is music playing at the Maetzold Amphitheater!

Looking across the way I see a pine cone, a very large silver pine cone waiting....
                                 People are always asking about the pine cone.....

                and they wonder why it's here....
                             

The Pine cone is a vessel for the seed of the tree.  It is a Vessel of Life.
It casts the seed of Continuum......

It was a good day.....hope your day was too!

Karen, it is indeed the first day of summer, and the high temp here will be 111. Yesterday it was 110!

Your photos are lovely. The pine cone sculpture is fascinating!
