‘Solstice’ (Latin: ‘solstitium’) means ‘sun-stopping’. The point on the horizon where the sun appears to rise and set, stops and reverses direction after this day. On the solstice, the sun does not rise precisely in the east, but rises to the north of east and sets to the north of west, meaning it’s visible in the sky for a longer period of time.
I have been waiting a year to use this photo! Haha. Taken last year at Cleveland Botanical Gardens in the Children’s Garden … My daughter and I spent the day at the Gardens and had a great day.
Happy Sunday and Happy Summer!
