Summer

June 21st the Summer solstice begins the warm months in the northern hemisphere.

For traditional people, the summer is a time of growth and the beginning of harvests that will provide food through the winter.

For city folk, summer is a time for flowers, iced tea and beach trips.

Greek goddess Horae represents the summer. The goddesses of nature guide the seasons. They are also the keepers of time. Summer is the warming to bring the seed to full growth. The growth to harvest is celebrated by farmers.

summer means a lot of floating in the pool to me. And hot hot hot in Texas. Not 100 yet, but temps are lurking. Enjoy your summer!
