Summer Solstice

Bee on blanket flower, Magdalena, NM, June 2011
What better way to celebrate the summer solstice than in the garden? The bees agree and are buzzing around madly; late in the day I see many plunged head-first deep in the flowers, seemingly asleep or maybe just drunk on the nectar. It is a lovely summer day, sunny and fairly calm, no smoke... bring on some rain and we'll really be in heaven. I bid you all (in the Northern Hemisphere, anyway) a beautiful solstice and a wonderful summer.
