It really is Spring!

debinsc

This is true:
phloxHowever, .. it will happen!  Here in the southern USA, it already has. :)

So today I’ve added my favorite day to the home page countdown: Summer Solstice! Those of you who know me or my blog know that I L-O-V-E summer!

So,…what’s this solstice thing? According to the Farmer’s Almanac:


The word SOLSTICE is from the Latin solstitium, from sol (sun) and stitium (to stop), reflecting the fact that the Sun appears to stop at this time (and again at the winter solstice).


This year it happens on June 21st, at 651AM EDT. The timing of the solstice depends on when the Sun reaches its farthest point north of the equator. By then, I should have lots of these little guys in the garden.

Art Prints

In temperate regions, we notice that the Sun is higher in the sky throughout the day, and its rays strike Earth at a more direct angle, causing the efficient warming we call summer.

This summer solstice is the day with the most hours of sunlight during the whole year.


Don’t you love that?

The reliable Farmer’s Almanac has a list of 10 Ways to Celebrate Summer

And if you decide to throw a party on the big day- and I think you should – I hope you’ll take a look at my Solstice greeting and invitation cards on Zazzle!

The Iceman must Go-eth!

debinsc

For my friends in northern climes who are literally buried in ice and snow and my southern friends experiencing this unusual cold, and rare wintry precip,    take heart – 36 days til the Spring Equinox! 

I know – 36 seems like A LOT of days right now, so meanwhile, I continue to try to spread light and color for all my fellow S.A.D. sufferers.

Here is today’s offering, and for a look back at some from last winter, here are links to 3 oldies-but-goodies:

Poppy Season

debinsc

I love the shapes and textures in Poppy blossoms.  The white ones are particularly intriguing to me. Here are a few, lit up by morning sun.

Churchyard Lily in Blue

Another carving, found in the same cemetery as yesterday’s little angel.  This is a work in progress, lots of cutting and coloring, but I like it so far.Stone Lily carving, colored manually.

Churchyard Angels

debinsc

One of my favorite things to do is explore old cemeteries, as I did for a while yesterday afternoon here in my hometown.  I found this little angel on an 18th C. headstone.  Isn’t she sweet?Churchyard Angel

I found a few other lovely examples but have yet to prep them for display. Watch this space. :)
