So, today is the longest day of the year. If I was standing on the North Pole it would still be several weeks until the first sunset. If I was at the South Pole is would still be several weeks until the first sunrise. As for midsummer in Springfield, Oregon? We had two weeks of summer like weather to go with Beltane on May 1,

After that? Well, I looked out the window this morning to a grey sky and the left over rain drops on the rhodies from the rather spectacular showers yesterday. In other words a typical midsummer’s day in the lower Willamette Valley. With luck we’ll get real summer in a couple of weeks. For the sake of the tomatoes and peppers if nothing else.

Found the picture on the net. It's called Suntwist. And was on a website about ethnic restaurants of all things. Would make a heck of a cinnamon bun
