“I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June…I feel that it would take me a long time to get tired of it, if it were all as charming as today.”
— L. M. Montgomery
There’s a good reason Anne’s sunny personality has won the hearts of so many readers for over 100 years now. And who can disagree with her about June? I’m guessing that even in the southern hemisphere it’s an agreeable time, more temperate than the months that follow.
We can only wonder with Anne what a perpetual June might be like. I suppose the closest we’ve come to it was during the years we lived in Hawaii, but even there, we learned to recognize that there were seasonal changes to enjoy.
For Anne (and for us here in Virginia) June is definitely worth celebrating– and you still have a couple of days more to do it. I hope you can take a few minutes today to savor whatever the climate might be bringing your way. Whether your June is bringing you carpets of green grass, sunshine, flowers, wind, rain, or something else I haven’t mentioned, I hope today is the charming kind of day that you’d not tire of for a long time.
