Summer Solstice 2016

Good Morning,

We have crossed the threshold, the days are growing shorter for those of us in this hemisphere. It was a glorious start for summer with the added bonus of a full moon.

High noon on the Summer Solstice. The sun was as high in sky as it will be all year.

The snap peas reach for the sun

I managed to keep this Datura alive in the house over winter. Looking forward to see the bloom. I can't imagine what insects could eat these leaves, it is a very dangerous plant.

The Sea Holly blossom is starting to show some color.

Rose Campion, my favorite "weed". These self seed and appear every year. The color is intense against the grayish foliage.

The sun sets on the longest day of the year

Nightime is illuminated by a full Strawberry Moon

Man, I feel so heavy.... so much angst. I'm happy that I can buy threads that make me feel complete.
