June was a glorious month.
Baby birds were chirping, grass was crisp and green, and flowers began to burst with luscious colors. The air is warm with radiating sunshine and the aroma of nature's annual revival.
With summer comes a wonderful feeling of freshness.
Some of these include fresh food, scents, scenery, and artwork!
Here we have highlighted three official symbols of June with magnificent artwork to match.
We hope these inspire you as you venture into this season!
