Summer Solstice

Lotus flowers and lilypads at Puerto Vallarta Botanical Garden

San Francisco often welcomes the summer solstice with a cool fog, but today’s warm and sunny weather feels more in line with the beginning of the season. The most northerly trek of the sun has been noted throughout human history in every corner of the world. Whether you’re enjoying long hours of sunlight, or marking the shortest day of the year down under, you’re participating in a global act. Few events so routinely unite all people everywhere, if only for a brief moment. Summer’s potential awaits.

    OK, I give up, what is that freaky plant in the reflection at the top of the picture? I see the lotus flowers are from Mexico but I don’t know any Mexican plant with leaves like that. Maybe a palm???

    JC, it’s not a plant. It’s a dragon sculpture in the pond. The reflection shows part of it upside-down. Good eye!
