Ahhhh ... Summer at last!
Have a great summer!


  1. The winter solstice is tomorrow at our place. Once the shortest day is over we can usually look forward to colder days and rougher weather for a few weeks. Then in September the wind starts blowing for a month or two. And then it is summer, so no complaints.
    I love your postcards.


  2. Doubt if the Druids at Stonehenge were happy with no sun showing on the shortest day

  3. Hope you will have a great day and a great week ahead.

  4. It is also a full moon at the solstice, the first in 70 years! Glad to be alive to witness it. :-)

  5. Hello, they are both cute cards. Happy Summer to you!

    Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!

  8. Nice to have summer. Summers here are like one long spring.

  11. I love summer! If only it could last about 5 months longer!
