welcome summer

What better way to welcome summer than with a mass of flowers? Or in my case, fresh tomato salad, a glass of rosé, and a new iPhone. I lingered on the roof last night until the sun finally set on the longest day. There is something magical about midsummer's night ~ or is it just that Shakespeare has forever romanticized it for us? What do you think?

And not to miss: Little Augury is celebrating the season with a fantastic summer reading series. Be sure to check in daily because you never know who is going to stop by with a bit of literary inspiration, or what goodies "little a" will give away!

I celebrate the solstice by burning candles in my front garden. I remember reading that when the astronauts were in the early days of space explorations they could see the solstice bonfires all over Europe.That image has made me smile for decades! Midsummer's night (itself a romantic trip of the tongue) was there to enjoy hundreds of years before Shakespeare. The reason I mark the solstices and the equinoxes with candles is to remember the light, the waxing and waning, for which all nature depends upon for growth.
And a happy Iphone to you!
