I've just been reminded of the nearness of the Solstice - see http://www.cyber-coenobites.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/looking-forward-to-solstice.html#links
And of course, the nights are still growing shorter as we approach the Longest Day. But is it me, or - as I remember the balmy evenings last month when I could walk in the garden, watching the stars coming out and the Moon rise, and breathe the lovely scents of the end of a warm sunny day - do the nights seem to be drawing in already on the cloudy damp evenings which follow grey damp days? I still love weather, though, whatever it does! We're invited to praise God for rain too, as I was reminded here: http://www.ibenedictines.org/2012/06/07/in-praise-of-rain/
And now I'm off to curl up under a warm duvet!
