The sun has returned to the mountain top. The catawba rhododendron is in full glory on the top of the mountain. The blackberry bushes are starting to bud and the coneflowers are coming along nicely. It won't be long until the mountain is in full bloom again. I am predicting it will be around the first or second week in July. Everything seems to be a couple of weeks ahead of schedule this year. The lows are in the mid 40s with a high yesterday of 64. It is still a little chilly for June. I am ready for some temperatures in the mid 70s. I know it is only a matter of time.
Some one was asking about the traffic we get on the blog. We average around 4500 to 5000 hits a day, with about 500 hits being repeats through out the day. We joke that our readership spikes when we get a good snowfall. I know if I get snow in October I will see about 14000 hits for that day. People love to see pictures of the white stuff. I don't blame them. I love taking pictures of it as well.
Time to go enjoy this sun while it is gracing us with its presence. I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer.
