Default Happy Solstice

Ring out Solstice Bells................shortest night of the year.
Longer days ahead of us. Think Spring ephemerals and Hellebores and
for some, the beloved Witch Hazel........(wait, maybe my Lorepedilum
will grace me with those shocking threads of magenta pink......one can
only hope)

In Winter's cold, always remember
We're closer to spring
Than we are to September.

Default Happy Solstice

Hate to Rain on your day, BUT read the following from my Astronomy e-mail list:


Sunday, December 21

The December solstice occurs tonight, at 2:04 a.m. EST
on the 22nd (11:04 p.m. on the 21st PST) making this the
longest night of the year. The Sun is farthest south for
the year and begins its six-month return northward. The
December solstice also marks the official start of winter
in the Northern Hemisphere (summer in the Southern Hemisphere).

Monday, December 22

Face north in early evening this week and look very high
for the M-shaped constellation Cassiopeia. The M is rather
flattened. Its three brightest stars form its left side.

"In this universe the night was falling,the shadows were lengthening
towards an east that would not know another dawn.
But elsewhere the stars were still young and the light of morning
lingered: and along the path he once had followed, man would one day go
again."

Thanks Maddie. T'was my 48th birthday, Dec. 21. It's usually the day of the
solstice, but that does change year to year. I'm loving my age. Now, if I can
figure out a way to stay here, that would be a delight.

Eh, you're fine. Now, if you asked me to multiply that, I'd have to get out a
book! I'm math dumb.
