Summer Solstice

Today is the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year. In honor of the day, I took a relaxing walk around our beautiful village, enjoying in the warm sun and summer breezes, and admiring the summer blooms.

I have been struggling with my health of late, and I am finally starting to feel better. Time outdoors, enjoying the advent of summer and my improved health, seemed like the perfect way to spend the evening.

During my stroll, I captured some images of the abundance of summer in our village.

I am looking forward to many more rambling walks, now that summer is officially underway.
