TRAVELING TODAY where light bends through Massachusetts mornings
and the welcomes come in roses.
 Where digitalis quickens the pulse of everything,
the Monarda didyma
feeds bees and butterflies...
 and tiger-lilies toil not,
but bless the gardener who does.
 Where 'round each corner...
there's an open invitation for reflectiveness.
The Summer Solstice arrives on Monday June 20th marking the first day of Summer in the northern hemisphere, when the North Pole of the Earth is angled at its greatest toward the Sun. It happens precisely at 6:34 PM EDT. The Full Moon rises just after sunset, tracking low across the southern skies. This is the first Full Moon on the Solstice since 1986, and won’t happen again until 2100.
(No virtual-All actual)
Back on the 27th
