Summer Solstice - first day of Summer

Today, the 21st June is the Summer Solstice, the longest day - the first day of summer. It was welcomed in by a gentle rainfall that washed over everything freshening up the garden (including the cat that insisted on continually going out in it only to return and twirl her soggy fur round and round my legs until I gently dried her with a towel - I can't tell you how many times she repeated this exercise!).

I had looked around the strawberry patch on Friday and the first of the fruits were well on their way to ripening. They all had white tips but will hopefully be ready for eating on Sunday. The strawberries are earlier than ever this year . . .

Little note: from this day the nights will now get longer (the nights draw in and the days get shorter).

I had my first strawberry from the garden a couple of days ago, and it was delicious.

So basically since the longest day was yesterday, it's all downhill from here. Unless we move to Argentina where it is winter now and will be heading towards summer. ; )
