June in Wichita Kansas

We finally got the rains we needed in May. The roses are all blooming like mad. The house has been full of flowers and the gardens are beautiful this year. So far we’ve added seven new roses and the usual vegetables and herbs.

Ditto, my old dog, gave us quite a scare last month when he got sick. It looked for awhile like he might not recover, but, he did and is back to his hyper and mischievous self.

While May brought us the moisture we needed June is bringing with it a month of special holidays, events and occasions.

The entire month of June is Great Outdoors Month! A celebration of the beginning of Summer and outdoor activities.

June is also national rose month, one of our favorites and  fruit and vegetable month.

It’s a time for thinking about safety during National Safety Month and drive safe month.

Potty training awareness month is June as is national iced tea month. One does has something to do with the other.

June 1st is Stand for Children Day. And important day to remember that children are in need of love and care from all of society. It’s also Oscar the Grouches birthday.

The radio was patented on the 2nd in 1896 and the first spacewalk happened in 1985. We came a long way in that 89 years.

Also in 1896 Henry Ford made the first operational car on the 4th.

World environment day is on the 5th and D-Day follows on the 6th.

Frank Loyd Wright was born in 1867 on the 8th of June. Donald Duck the next day in 1934.

A special day for Kansas and the Wizard of OZ is June 10th, 1922, the day Judy Garland was born.

Race unity day falls on the 2nd Sunday in June, another important day to reflect on the fact that we are all equal and children of the same Earth.

Weed your garden day falls on the 16th, but actually happens just about every day.

Flag Day is the 14th.

Fly a kite day on the 16th commemorates Ben Franklin’s famous kite flight in 1752.

Eat your vegetables day is the 17th.

Bald Eagle day, our national symbol, is the 20th.

Although many hold Memorial day to be the first day of Summer the actual day is the 21st of June.

UFO day is the 24th.

The bicycle was patented on the 26th of June in 1819, the same day as Chocolate pudding day and in 1498 the toothbrush was invented. I wonder what they did for clean teeth before that?

Captain Kangaroo and Helen Kellers birthdays both fall on the 27th. Helen Keller in 1880. If you ever start to feel down or like you weren’t given a fair shake in life, think of Helen and all that she accomplished.

The Happy Birthday song was written in 1859 on the 27th, just in time for Helens birthday.

The last day of June is Meteor day and Supermans birthday.
