Rain in June Petrichor https://gardensweedsandwords.com/gwwblog/gardeninspo365-day124-petrichor Flooding Oberon's speech, A Midsummer Night's Dream, ACT II SCENE I... Enter Puck. Oberon: Hast though the flower there? Welcome, wanderer. Puck: Ay, there it is. Oberon: I pray thee, give it me. I know a bank where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlip and the nodding violet grows, Quite overcanopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk roses, and with eglantine.

But plenty of long, lazy summer evenings to go.
