The rose is one of the official flowers of June.

Life in June often includes gathering with friends and family for weddings, graduations, or visits. The weather is summery, which means packing less and lighter clothing for easy travel. Fun activities are enjoyed indoors and out, and June brings the sunshine and warmth to accommodate the events. The flowers blooming in a variety of colors are a bonus and allow for the creation of welcome bouquets, indoor and outdoor decorations, show-and-tell moments in the garden, and joyful nature walks.

These 30 quotes—one for each day in June—highlight sunshine, flowers, and other aspects of the month that make it special. June gives us many reasons to smile, one of which is Father’s Day—a holiday on which we honor our fathers and father figures. Enjoy the sunshiny, colorful month of June!

I can relate to Lee Child's comment, but a January in NZ is special.

Kyler J Falk from Corona, CA on April 20, 2020:

Number seventeen made me lose it with laughter, I don't know why but it just hit me like a facepalm moment. I mean, if I analyze with a poetic approach, sure, yeah that statement alone is beautiful and deeper than most. When I look at it practically, I am stuck saying to myself, "Thanks captain obvious!"

Thanks for the laugh, and the wonderful read!

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on April 19, 2020:

Bill, thanks for your comment. Let's keep on praying and hoping. If our prayers don't change the situation, they will change the way we see it.

William Kovacic from Pleasant Gap, PA on April 19, 2020:

I especially like # 8, Dora. I'm ready for sunshine and flowers. I wonder if we'll still be in lockdown come June. That would be hard to deal with.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on April 19, 2020:

Rajan, what beautiful phrases in your comment! You make us long for June. Thank you.

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on April 18, 2020:

The month of June for me is associated with the sweet scent of soil wafting from the first monsoon showers falling on the summer parched mother earth and the opening of the new school session after the long summer holidays.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on April 18, 2020:

Success, your comment also sounds like words I'd like to quote. Thank you very much.

Denise W Anderson from Bismarck, North Dakota on April 16, 2020:

When I think of June, I think of growing up on a farm where we always hung our laundry outside to dry. The smell of freshly sun-dried laundry is the smell of June to me.I even buy a laundry soap that is scented as "spring sunshine."

Lora Hollings on April 15, 2020:

I just love your quotes on June! No wonder it is the month that we associate with so much happiness. Most weddings and graduations take place in June. It is a month that many of us finally can take a vacation from our work or classes and enjoy so many outdoor activities such as family picnics, swimming, and biking! And those beautiful lazy summer nights in June when we enjoy talking to our neighbors or friends as we sit on our front porches and drink our lemonade or iced tea and talk about the day's events or our future plans. And those roses! Thank you, Dora, for these beautiful quotes that truly reflect this awesome month.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on April 14, 2020:

June always is a lovely month. You have such wonderful quotes and one for each day of that month. We have very warm weather by June but it is still not the very hot weather that comes in July.

I really like the quotes especially the ones mentioning flowers, like #9 "Wisteria woke me this morning." This is a very good article, Ms. Dora.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on April 14, 2020:

This is so refreshing, Dora. My mom's birthday is in June, so this was of particular interest to me. I love the quote about honeysuckle. I remember tasting its sweet nectar when I was a little girl.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on April 14, 2020:

Thanks, Lorna. I guess that many readers share your wish. Sadly, I know that it cannot be done, because for all the years I have spent in tropical temperatures, the cold still makes me tremble. Still, I miss it sometimes.

You're welcome, Rosina. Really happy that you enjoy the quotes. I'm happy collecting them for my readers.
