Day 21 – Solstice


10.15 on the longest day of the year, and the hottest day of the year. A couple of weeks ago I was complaining about the rain, but we could really do with some now. I’m hoping my little allotment pond is keeping the wildlife there hydrated. It’s worth leaving out bowls of water if you live somewhere that any wildlife might be passing by. 

It was 33.5° at 3.15 this afternoon. I know this because one of our residents has a weather station in his back garden – its always good for a look when the weather’s being exciting bristolweather.org I love the way that technology has made it so easy to record and share this sort of information – more evidence of citizens science I guess. Happy Solstice, enjoy these long evenings while we can.
