Summer Solstice

We were working so we did not get to celebrate the Summer Solstice today. Which is okay.
Tomorrow we will celebrate the sun by harvesting St. John's Wort from a very special place. We'll try to harvest it mid-day, as that is the best time to collect this sun-worshiping plant. It is open and in full energy at that time.

We will eat some celebratory summer food, have a fire in the backyard, spend time in the garden, and eat our dinner outdoors. I hope to draw and color lots of suns to decorate the house, make hibiscus-lemon sun tea, and make a flower/plant wreath to adorn our door or heads. Most importantly I will take a moment and thank the sun for all that it does for us and welcome with joy and anticipation the summer months to come.
Happy Summer Solstice!
