Sunrise at Stonehenge

Ahhh, yes! The summer solstice arrived this morning in the northern hemisphere at 6:07 A.M. EDT. ‘Tis my favorite time of the year. I love when the days have the longest period of daylight. More time to spend in the gardens.

I imagine many a soul flocked to Stonehenge this morning in celebration. I’m celebrating getting my fingers dirty in the gardens.

Don’t you just love the  bright blooms of this Coreopsis from my garden?

What else am I doing? I’m working on the next book for the Highland Gardens historical time travel series–Just His Fae Kiss. More about the upcoming book in a future post.

How are you celebrating the first day of summer? Please share in the comments.

I hope you have a magical day!

Summer Solstice 2017

Wishing you and yours a magical summer!

 

This year’s summer solstice  was at 12:24 AM EDT in the Northern Hemisphere. I love this time of year–long days of sunlight. I spent the morning tidying the garden. Weeding, trimming shrubs, and deadheading blooms. Such activity makes me feel productive.

This afternoon, I’ll dig into my current WIP (work-in-progress), Just His Fae Kiss, the sixth tale in the Highland Gardens Scottish fantasy time travel romance series. This is Caitrina and Douglas’s story. I’ve created a Pinterest board for Just His Fae Kiss. Follow along as I create the tale.

How do you celebrate the summer solstice?
