The Laburnum's almost sneezed itself into flowering. A bit more warmth and sunshine and it'll be covered in yellow danglies and bees. Push, you miserable little shrub!

Sodomites have stolen so much from society from the word "gay" to the rainbow. What a lot of people aren't aware of, however, is they stole a month that used to be dedicated to heterosexual marriages to be their gay pride month. According to historical documents I've read, from ancient times the month of June was associated with weddings. There are multiple reasons for this. Firstly, the name June comes from the name of the Roman goddess Juno whose realm included love, marriage and childbirth. Secondly, the weather of the month of June is pleasant and allows wagons of guests to travel easily to a wedding. Thirdly, a woman who marries in June is likely to have her first child in early spring and will have plenty of time to rest, recover, and bond with her new baby before the next fall harvest. Fourthly, back when Europe became mostly Christian the tradition of June brides continued because June is always after Lent and does not involve any traditional fasting; this ensured that a wedding feast could be held. Lastly, as time went on, people continued to have June weddings because flowers became more traditional at weddings and that is the month fresh flowers were most commonly available. I feel like we should reclaim June as heterosexual pride month due to its long association with heterosexual marriages. Video: June Bride from the musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.
