It’s summer solstice today, but apparently not summer, at least not in Nova Scotia. The most hours of daylight of the year doesn’t actually help if the sun’s not shining.
It’s been cool and rainy for weeks and let’s just say I’d trade this for the heat wave in Arizona any day. Wearing a sweater and slippers – indoors – on the first day of summer just plain feels wrong to me.
But my rhododendrons are blooming, and the For Sale sign in my front yard is flapping, scaring the deer away from my lilies. One or two of them might survive long enough to flower this year. So it’s not all bad.
How is summer where you are?
