Summer’s Slow Arrival

This season we have had lot’s of rain and rather cooler days. Nature however has unfolded in beautiful colors everywhere. Lush green forests and meadows, and many private and public gardens are filled with the colors of summer flowers such as peonies, roses, petunias and others.

The four seasons are clearly marked. Meanwhile the days are quite long. Beginning of June the sun rises at 5 30 am and sets by 9.20 pm.  The summer solstice will be on June 21 with almost 16 hours of daylight. The nights are shorter and as soon as the sun is out for a a few days temperatures will quickly rise to 30°C and above: then summer will finally have arrived.
