Yesterday, we hit the first day of summer and that meant the Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere occurred. This is where the sun is at it's highest peak in the sky as seen from the north pole.
And what does that mean for us? The longest period of day light. For us here, that meant we had about 16 hours of daylight. So nice...and today? We start to head the other way and loosing about 2 seconds of daylight and this loss will get faster over the next several months.
But we don't have to worry about that right now. It's all about enjoying the summer and getting out and doing the things that you love to do outside.
What says summer more than birds and flowers. So that is what I am sharing today. Actually this will be a Make and Take for my open house this weekend.
