Summer Solstice


bc-summer-nixon-100621.jpgIs it summer already?  Don't you feel slightly cheated that this glorious season has arrived with almost no warning?  Spring was decidedly spring-like and during those 92 days between March 21 and June 21 temperatures rose above 20 degrees on just five days.  Last year, amid much fretting about global warming, we hit 20 degrees on 18 of the first 21 days of June alone.  Friends, we have reason to feel miffed.

But nature makes little adjustments to whatever the weather throws at it.  Fish gotta swim, plants gotta grow and U-pick berry fanatics still gotta head to their Strawberry Fields icon_video.gif
