For some reason, I don’t feel as though summer is really here until July. June must fill itself up with things I put off from the school year. Then there are June events to fill up the calendar.
Some of the events included the Annual Vista Track Meet, a talk by Luis Fuerte (the cameraman of the PBS show California’s Gold), a Levitt on the Lawn concert at Scripps College (the Dustbowl Revival), and my sister’s graduation from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena.
A volunteer squash plant sprouted in my yard, and we had a bumper year for apricots which we had to rescue from the squirrels. Plums were good this year, too. A dead city tree was removed, and early June was a great time to hike the Wilderness Park Trail before it got too hot.
The wading pool at Memorial Park was open once again after years of drought. The bottom of the pool has new sea creatures painted on it.
A day trip to Pasadena led to the discovery of a few Little Free Libraries.
The Vintage Flip people are working on two buildings along 4th St. between Harvard and Yale.
Pomona College was busy with weddings and National Cello Institute.
