"A gardener exhibits great faith when planting a seed"

Here Comes Summer.........
Today, June 21, 2010, dawns Summer Solstice. The longest day of the year. Here in Edmonton, Alberta Canada it is still relatively light out at 10:30 pm and morning breaks around 4 am. The robins chirp their cheerful song, the song you hear only in the morning and evening it seems. The irises are blooming and peonies nod beneath the weight of heavy scent-laden flowers. Snowball bushes are blooming away and the lilacs are about finished here. I sit by the pond. listening to the gentle fall of water as it cascades over the rocks and down the stream before softly falling to the pond. Relaxing, enjoying the soft breeze as it rustles by.
I look forward to this day because it is the longest but sigh with regret because from here they get shorter. C'est La Vie. Welcome to summer!
