Friday was the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere and the days are starting to get shorter. The farmers’ markets are starting to fill up with delicious produce: red juicy tomatoes, tender sweet corn on the cob, blueberries and strawberries, and fuzzy peaches. Our garden is producing enough basil that I made pesto with it this week. There are so many boats on the creek that I have a constant parade to enjoy from my studio windows.

What do you enjoy about summer?
