Happy Summer Solstice! Or Estival Solstice. Or Midsummer! It’s officially Summer now. And if you’re anywhere in the southern part of the United States, you know that it’s sweltering hot. The woman at the grocery store said that the green beans in Florida have been burnt to a crisp and Georgia’s aren’t far behind. I lived in the ATL for over a decade and my friends there have complained it’s in the triple digits this week. I do not miss the heat or humidity of the South. I’m technically still in the South here in Tennessee, but it’s nothing like south Georgia where I grew up. Hot, muggy, and gnats.
I’ve been helping my MIL with her garden on some of the worse days. We water twice a day to get the garden alive. To celebrate Summer Solstice I decided to snap some photographs just for the practice and to enjoy the beauty of the garden everyone has worked so hard on.
I tried to go celebrate the beautiful day with the puppies outside, but even in the shade, the heat just really is overbearing and daunting. I’m biased because I cannot sweat. Yet I cannot deny the puppies were ready to get indoors right away and Millie hogged the AC vent as soon as she was able to access it. I love hanging out in the hammock, but it’ll definitely need to wait until the weather has cooled off more.
An amazing sunset at Stonehenge was shared on Facebook yesterday.
I hope everyone enjoys their Summer Solstice and the official start of the Summer Season! Stay cool, stay safe, and have fun.
