Happy Summer Solstice!

Today marks the summer solstice  (in the Northern Hemisphere) which not only marks the 1st day of summer it also signifies the longest day of the year.   Sol + stice derives from a combination of Latin words meaning "sun" + "to stand still." As the days lengthen, the sun rises higher and higher until it seems to stand still in the sky.  As I mentioned in my post yesterday Summer is by far my favorite season and it is these long days with warm evenings that never seem to end that make a long winter and what seemed to be an extended spring all worthwhile. 
So here is to Summer, may the sun be warm on your face and the water cool on your toes.
