...Otherwise Known as the Summer Solstice
Actually yesterday, Friday, June 21, was the official summer solstice...the longest day of the year. And, as if we needed an official marking of the day...the beginning of summer.
A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. James Dent
Houston has had heat advisories for the last two days. This afternoon...Friday...it is 92 degrees out but feels as if it is 103.
The moon is at her full, and riding high, Floods the calm fields with light. The airs that hover in the summer sky Are all asleep tonight. William Cullen Bryant
There is, we think, a bluebird nest in the birdbox we put up just a few weeks ago and Larry and I are concerned about the eggs or babies. We have supplied plenty of water in the back yard along with all sorts of bird-delights so we’re keeping our fingers crossed.
Long stormy spring-time, wet contentious April, winter chilling the lap of very May; but at length, the season of summer does come. Thomas Carlyle
Summer makes me think of ice cream cones, running through sprinklers and sitting outside at night and watching the night sky.
Have a summerlicious weekend!
