Summer Soltice by gardenfolk

Summer Soltice

The sun is shining ever so bright
On the longest day of the year
Illuminating the world with its brilliant light
Dispelling all traces of fear

What a glorious day
To honor the sun
Knowing that all is connected
Knowing that all is one. ...Angel Love
Beautiful, the colours are just stunning

How sunny wonderful this is!!! The colors and your background rainbow are just delightful! Here I sit on a rather overcast day but fingers crossed that the sun may appear later! Meanwhile I'll take yours to warm me!

@365anne @gigiflower @ziggy77 @cjphoto @radiogirl @jesperani @craftymeg @seattlite @365projectorgangelabrown Thank you one and all for your kind comments. I chose this flower for the summer colors, yellow tips on the petals and round shape for the sun on the first day of summer.

@365projectorgjenfurj @hermann Thank you for your comments. I forget that it isn't the same season for everyone, everywhere in the world. I will need to travel to Australia, New Zealand and that part of the world one of these days.:)
