I love long summer days. The longest day falls on June 21st this year – an exactly equal amount of time in day and night. This calls for a celebration. Think about it; twelve full hours of sunlight to fill with fun. Oh, where to begin… First things first! Fill the house with sunflowers. What better bloom to use as a tribute to the longest day of the year than sunflowers. I remember one summer road trip. We were driving across the plains of Nebraska. There were fields of sunflowers as far as the eye could see. As the sun moved across the sky, their heads followed faithfully. What a sight! It is no wonder the Aztecs referred to the sunflower as the Flower of the Gods.
