summer solstice

A joyous summer solstice to you! We’ve just enjoyed the passing from Spring into Summer, marked by the longest day of the year on June 21st. The added sunshine during this time of year is a boon to most of us and we thrive when gifted these extra daylight hours. We spent the day outdoors, strolling the winding paths of two public gardens that we visited, enjoying a variety of wildlife and seasonal flowers.  

Summer to-do list: dip toes in the lake, try a new flavor of ice cream, visit the farmer’s market often, put in some basil plants, throw open the windows as often as our southern heat allows, enjoy a seasonal menu of summer salads and chilled soups....and of course, put on the summertime songs!
