Pollen output may have peaked, mosquitoes have made their still-modest appearance and, no doubt where fresh water flows, black flies are already well into their ascendancy. With that of course, Father's Day must be at hand, soon followed by the June 21st Summer Solstice. Did you know that Summer Solstice was traditionally celebrated by dancing around bonfires? Here in Vermont we have a few better ideas - festival fun, search for the perfect brew, pitch a tent...
The sights and smells of summer are wonderful; but for me, it's the sounds that I find most pleasing. The chirping, twittering and chattering of birds, the mating call of peepers that have chosen my pond as their summer home and the honking of geese as they fly overhead.
Summer is a gift from the heavens to be enjoyed by all our senses. Come visit and enjoy the beauty of a Quechee, Vermont summer. Life is good.
