Summer solstice.

             Tomorrow is Summer Solstice,the longest day of the year, for the next few days the sun will rise and set in the same place before the wheel of the year starts to turn again.Then our day light will shorten, the harvest will be at its fullest soon and we will be back to cold dark days of winter by the fire.
    I wish I was going to Stone Henge or Glastonbury to join in the celebrations but that's not going to happen so I will just have my own little celebration here at home.I am going to be up nice and early for when the sun rises and go for a walk in the woods where it will be just me and the wildlife so happy and peaceful.I haven't yet decided what I'm doing for the rest of the day I don't make plans anymore because something always comes up.I want to get out in the garden at some point and just take in what mother nature has given me and appreciate what a lovely piece of land I have to grow my flowers and herbs even though it is only a small garden some people don't have a bit of ground to grow just a little bit of something so I consider myself lucky.
    I have a little elder tree growing in my garden only a very small one but just big enough for the faeries to dance under tonight at midnight as they celebrate midsummer eve,oh you old romantic you are Jill I hear you say,well I have always believed in faeries and I'm not going to stop now.
            Happy Solstice to you all
            Love and blessing
