Summer solstice

Tree against brick wall

I took this picture yesterday evening, just before sunset on the first full day of summer.

I love summer! I rejoice when the calendar finally confirms what the weather has been hinting at for weeks. I bask in the warmth.

I also savor the light. I enjoy every minute of this almost longest day of the year. But I also am a little disappointed, just a little, because tomorrow the day will be shorter. Not by much—at our longitude, it's just a few seconds a day this first week. A little more each day next week. Until by September, each day is over two hours shorter than yesterday.

But enough of that! I'm going to enjoy every minute I get!
