June 2016 Highlights

“The castle grounds were gleaming in the sunlight as though freshly painted; the cloudless sky smiled at itself in the smoothly sparkling lake, the satin-green lawns rippled occasionally in a gentle breeze: JUNE had arrived.” ― J.K. ROWLING, in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2003)
