Summer Solstice

Enjoying the longest day of the year, and shortest night. This year on the 20th, but just as likely on the 21st. And depending on who you talk to, the start of summer.

For us here in the Northeastern US, it’s been hot. And about to get hotter. I enjoy heatwaves. My garden loves the heat. So I have been and will be soaking it in.

Also, we have the luck of a Full Moon in the sky – officially at 9:07 PM tomorrow on the 21st. Be that as it may, this Strawberry Moon is big and bright in the sky tonight.
