Summer Solstice 2023

Posted on

I usually do posts on Solstices and Equinoxes. 2021 & 2022 were such bad years that I didn’t bother. My first post was in 2018 and, I did one for 2019 & for 2020. I will do a simple post this year. ~Vic

    Not sure why they have to confuse ‘Solstice’ with summer. Just b/c it’s the longest, or shortest day doesn’t clue us into the seasons around here. Maybe they should have a calendar that calls it ‘summer’ whenever the temps go over 85 degrees? Then we can demonstrate how Texas has YoYo season all ‘winter’ long, and ‘summer’ comes whenever the weather makers feel like it!

      Well…Texas is a strange place, weather-wise. I know from experience, too.

      Would you prefer Litha?

        Litha? Have any run-ins with the Texas Weather Modification Association while you were here?

          I was in Texas 2002-2011. Early on, I don’t remember any chemtrailing. By the time 2010 rolled around, I was so ill from chemicals, if there was any weather mods, I didn’t notice. My ex-marine hit rock-bottom, financially (swimming in expensive alcohol) and started to dig. He retired from the military in December 2006 and went into a tail spin. He couldn’t hold down a job and I was too ill to work much. He deserted me in April 2011 and I lost the house. I had to return to NC to survive.

    Awesome flower…I didn’t notice the bee when I looked at it…only that leave or whatever it is curving through it.

      Bee balms are strange looking flowers to me. My bumble’s hiney is kinda blurry. Ha!

      Lots of leaves…taken in a dense pollinator garden.

        I thought it was a snake when I first saw it.
